Flight batteries charged ... waiting for the last two
Looks like I'm almost ready to go. For Griff I will try to get a decanted or deflagrated cow on video. If we can find a good soundtrack, I might patch together a little video clip of the results, but nobody wants to listen to the motor for a few minutes.
Leaving on a 10 day vacation to Poland tomorrow morning!
I'm taking the laptop though, so if I have free WiFi in the hotels you won't even know I'm gone...
And I'll be studying maths for an exam I've got next month...
Man, where's the time I could leave everything behind for a few weeks and just get out without worries?
Anyway, when the hotels don't have free WiFi I'll see you all when I get back!
