Only 44 lbs, plus I have my lift technique down... no bend in knees, bend at hips, use back to jerk weight up as quickly as possible I'm guessing these deep cycle batts are at least that much weight each

I think I saw one of these online and it was in the $700-800 price range

I bought something similar but made of steel wire by a company called Carpod. I liked it because the sided are pinned and it folds up to like 5" thick for storage. I ordered the optional locking lid as well (and locking hitch pin) so I think it will work out for Luna or other lunch trips direct from the field

I think I'm starting to come down with something but will probably still come out unless I'm really not feeling well. 104 may stay home if I'm not close to 100% or if Chris will not be out as I don't get generator until Monday

Plan on flying the 68" Velox for the first time in a while.

I think what you might be feeling is buyers remorse.

I'm so jealous.

Where were you guys this am?


It was a beautiful calm day today at the site. Where is everybody this morning? I was there by myself until about 11am when another person showed up.
