In Florida, you simply went to an empty field....here [California] they have all of these
oppressive flying laws.
Can anybody help?
The fundimental problem with rocketry in California, be it central or coastal southern California, is that for at least six months of the year, the landscape
is carpeted in hybrid fuel (dried grass and brush) mixed with an oxidizing atmosphere. It only needs a relatively small rise in absolute temperature and
the equivalent of a Daveyfire to set it off. I now live in Calabasas, starting
point of the great3 day fire of '94 that burned up Malibu, and can only think whistfully back at the times in my youth in Pennsylvania when we launched anytime we wanted to in the field behind the house. Sigh.
Such is the price we pay for living in LaLa land, where the economy is strong
enough to for me to affort high power engines. I'm just greatfull that there
are any scheduled safe launches anywhere around here.
Anyway, just my penny-and-a- half's worth.
