I miss the old van. It had so much room. Now when we go camping we have to take two cars. Luckily, all the camping gear fits in one.

Local fireworks display from over the weekend. I used audio from another source that was recording the same thing at the festival, so you can hear the fireworks. I tried using audio software to remove the voices a little but then the fireworks...no longer sounded like fireworks.

So I am flying my profile foamy during my son's baseball game yesterday. Don't worry, I was not flying over the game. I like flying across the parking lot at the football field because all the little brothers and sisters come running over and get 15 to 20 minutes of watching planes fly. That also comes with the inevitable "Can I fly it?" which I used to find distracting. Yesterday was different. The kid had to be something like 4, I just took off, and conversation went something like this:

Kid: Can I fly your plane.
Me: No.
Kid: Why?
Me: Because this plane is not a beginner plane.
Kid: But I know how to fly?
Me: What do you fly?
Kid: I have a drone.
Me: Drones are easy to fly. This is different.
Kid: I can fly it.
Me: No, you can't.
Kid: Yes, I can.
....this went of for 2 minutes....
Me: No, you can't
Kid: Yes, I...
Kid's older sister: Enough!
Kid: Can I touch it?
Me: No.
Kid: Why not?
Me: Some parts might be too hot to touch after flying.
Kid: I'm going to touch it.
Me: I'll call the police.
Kid: I'll call the police!
Me: Cool, maybe two different cops will show up and we can have them fight. If yours wins, you can touch it.
DX9: 30 seconds remaining.
Kid: What was that?
Me: I have to land now.

And that was pretty much it. The kids stayed behind the flight line like I asked them to, I landed, and then went back to watch some of the game. I think I was entertained with the conversation as much as the flight, but I was doing all kinds of stunts during the conversation. I wasn't even really thinking about it. That only took 4 years.
