» Rocketry pride
This Pink Saturday (the day before the corporate-sponsored Pride March in SF) I realized I had the spoons for either flying rockets with LUNAR, my local NAR chapter, or going to the Womens’ March.
I arrived in Holister, wearing my Pride camp shirt and abortion rights t-shirt1, flew some rockets, and had a good time.

Our club’s summer launch site in Holister is photogenic, but those rocket-eating-trees behind a barbed wire fence on the ridge in the background require care when flying to or near our ceiling of 300 meters (~1,000 in Freedom Units™.)
Here’s the rocket. In homage to my home, the kit name, “HyperLOC 160” became “HyphyLOC 510”. Photo by the author.
Like people and cats. It turns out that rockets have many names.
