JPEE,

How exciting for you!! I know you will be looking forward to much needed cool nights and an absolutely beautiful night view starting next month.

Funny you should mention flying - I was just looking at my heli's the other day. I still need to repair the 500 and get a new boom for the Goblin. I have some time as mornings are still a bit warm and humid. Flying can wait but boating is still going on some weekends, at least when the weather and waves are good.

Glad your enjoying the cool weather tonight. Get a fan in the window and enjoy the nighttime!!

Mark

Hi Mark, I hope you get out and get to do a little bit of flying soon. Yes these unloading and reloading these rockets is got to be tough on the guys both in Florida and here in California. Little seals going time and time again you have to wonder what country made them?? I pray theyíre not imported. This last cancellation of a flight one or two days ago was due to too much wind and Vandenberg so here is the new schedule that weíre following.

I donít know if I told you and I canít go back to the page once Iím opened up on my pad. But night before last I was set up in the front yard with two walkie-talkies one on the talk frequency to the ISS and the other two itís repeater broadcasting back to me. I kept calling from when I saw them at the horizon but did not get any response along with other people in the background. I hope when I get out to the desert and thereís less people calling in the air is actually cleaner that I might have a better chance. I donít think theyíll accept it here as a attachment after reading what they allow and donít so Iím gonna send you a minute and a half two minute best clip of me calling them listening for a response and you can hear the other people in the background. Hopefully youíll find it a little interesting and my wife was sitting next to me and making sure that the iPad was recording everything that was going on. Youíll hear me faintly and know that itís me giving my call sign and I call out first NA1SS then my call sign.

You take care and weíll talk soon

Hi JPEE,

You have a large one going up tomorrow afternoon, window opens at 2:53PM PST.

Even though it will be a daytime launch, it should be quite visible to you.

Good morning Mark, thanks for the reminder but we were on top of this one. As usual this site is goofing up and all of my text got buried above the picture that I added. So again thanks for the reminder but we’re on top of this one and will be outside beforehand and have our tablets to verify that the launch is going on without complications.

without giving too many details we’ve got all the RC is loaded up and on the Polaris side-by-side and will be making that change in the next couple of days to fly where the skies are wide open. I just realized the big red MD 500 is not in the shot that goes in the cab of the truck with me and the 600 will be sitting last on top of close to preserve it from not getting any damage. So we’re looking forward to some clear skies.
MADE AN ERROR. MY PLANE IS A P-47 JUG
Take care

Hello once again Mark, We were just watching the news here live at 7 AM Pacific standard time and see that you are really in the path of the hurricane. Earlier on we thought it would pass you but what they just showed on the model now you will be hit hard. You and your family will be in our hearts and our prayers and I know that you’re making ready for this, but we wanted you to know we’re in your corner and will pray that you suffer no physical or even property damage for that matter.

Good luck J n J

Hello Mark, We sat patiently waiting for blast off and there was some indication that the viewing site would be 5 to 7 miles as opposed to 100 miles with the other rockets with the satellites. We were then put off another hour and stood by watching everything live only to be disappointed that when it lifted off we were outside but could not see anything. There’s a huge glare and the sun is out it’s 3:30 pm. in the afternoon. We saw nothing, not even a vapor Trail. At least the last Star Link rocket Elon put up we could see the rocket vapor trail in the sky squiggly as the wind was blowing it around. Color us disappointed ☹️ today..

I saw these large electric helis on Facebook. My parents are coming to visit in a couple of weeks and they are going to bring my heli since I didn't have room.

Hi JPEE,

Just a quick update as it is 0530 on September 28 and Ian just increased to a Cat 4 and is expected to make landfall later this afternoon.

We have almost everything completed, just a few loose ends to clean up after I get off work this morning.

That's it for now...

God Bless you and your family Mark, we are with you and watching close. Just a moment ago I looked up Cape Canaveral so when they show the track of the storm I can see where that is to your location.

Hi JPEE,

A 4PM update: We finished up the remaining cleanup this morning - basically moved any remaining plants inside the garage, both cars in the garage, secured the grill outside against the house, placed bricks on all the downspouts and drainage piping (I was not able to complete the underground drainage in time so had to set it as above ground using some existing 20ft. corrugated piping), and also placed some quick dam flood barrier against the garage door to prevent water from getting into the garage.

My job activated the hurricane team so I don't have to go to work until Saturday, if everything is considered all clear. That has been a relief as it allowed me to get things done at home and remain at home during this storm.

Right now we still have electricity so are watching the news and weather to track the storm and watch the live reports. Quite scary some of the flooding videos we have been seeing.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers,

Mark

Hello Mark thank you for the update. You really had your hands full. Thank God you’ve had the time to get away from work enough to do what you need to do for the well-being of your family and your home. If you’ve got that corrugated tubing for your drains I hope you put steaks on each side with wire or something to hold them down so they don’t become airborne flopping around causing damage it may be breaking windows. I’m sure you’ve considered all those things you’re a smart guy.
I hate to be redundant but I am going to be anyway God bless you and the family and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that you make it through this with little to no damage. And again thank you for the update.

JP
