Thanks for the offer!

As last year I will end the road trip in Florida. (where else )This time at the east coast and Orlando though. I assume you are located near Daytona?

Good news, a customer cancelled his/her order so I will have the Voodoo already next week! I'm not sure I will get the time to try it out before I leave but let's see

I had some better luck back in 2007
Florida Launch - Florida Del 1 (2 min 53 sec)
You get bonus points if you manage to translate my language into english

But still I remember back in 1969 watching a black and white no more then 8 years old THE landing. That's why I still, after 3 times, shiver walking under the Saturn V at KSC.

Do you know why the launch was scrubbed?

LOL,You talk funny (truth be told,i am just jealous,i am from New York City,so my accent sounds like ).....As far as the SpaceX launch,it was strange when it happened,all 9 engines fired-the boom fell back,then it all just shut off ......It ended that one of the 9 motors had a temp sensor go off,so it shut all motors down .But i live so close and watch every launch at the cape,a scrub does not bother me,i will just go down there again on the next try....but i always feel bad for all the people i talk to that came from so far away.You to are a lucky man,i would have to think ANY person that has witnessed a Shuttle launch,will remember for there whole life of how amazing they were,and how they can make the whole earth shake under your feet,and the things that go through your mind as you watch.....The power and speed was just AMAZING.

Now that was nice! I had a look at NASA's schedule, no luck. Unfortunately no launch when I'm in the area this year.. My Voodoo it's on is way though :-)
