My First LDRS -- Safe Arrival at Campsite

After an 18+ hour drive, I finally made it to Middlesex, NY and set up camp. It was a fun drive. I stayed the night in Cleveland in a parking lot of a Wal-Mart Supercenter o.O No problems, no break-downs, no getting lost. It went very well. Now I am here at the campground trying to relax before tomorrow.

If I'm going to fly Longshot Starkiller, I've got a lot of work yet to do. It's a tossup at this point whether he will fly or not.

This evening I met a guy named Larry who's camping next to me (who I think I already knew a little bit from TRF). I only got to talk to him for 3 or 4 minutes, but he cryptically said something like I'd see things at this LDRS that I would never see again in my life. Hm... he couldn't say more than that. Whatever the case, it will be an exciting event. Also, apparently Discovery Channel and some Mythbusters people will be here.

I like this camping stuff. It's so open and friendly for opening up conversations and getting to know people. There will be a campfire later and I'll get to meet even more people. Picnic tables also make such great workbenches for rockets.
