I’ve always wanted to build and launch a high-power rocket, but I’ve never done it before. I’d never even launched a small one. This is my long and unnecessarily drawn-out journey of self-discovery where you can watch me figure out how to do it, hopefully without blowing myself up in the process.

Looking wistfully into space

I am originally from Chicago (born and raised), and recently my wife and I moved to the Seattle area. Lately, I’m just checking out the rocket launching scene in the great Pacific Northwest.
