Truer words were never said!
I couldn’t agree more!
It’s what made Infocom great.
When I was a kid in the 60s, I built my first Estes rocket. I spent hours perfecting the paint job. On it’s maiden flight, it went up… up… up… gone. I never did find that thing!
Rocketry is a blast, especially when you upgrade the engine. I never found my rocket after that either.
Very inspiring, my little darlings!
And may all your dreams come true…dearest Red and Rover
I tried making my own with match heads & foil. Results were less than satisfactory
Another winner from Brian, the rocket panels are glorious!
Basically, Brian’s advice is extremely timely because, more and more, base reality ‘sucks’! So let us join our fearless leaders in their total “Imagination”! (also known, in some quarters, as ‘delusionment’!)
Extra points for getting the ignition sequence in the right place!
Words to live by and I am so glad I grew up in an era where we could do it!
I’m 62 and I still play with electric trains. If I make it to 82…. I hope I still am!
I used to love building those model rockets!
