EVACUATION WEST TO BALMY PALMS

January 1, 2015

MICHIGAN GOT MOSQUITOES; TEXAS GOT BANDITOS

Texas turned out cold rainy and dreary.  Our business plans ran into cold receptions and traffic jams in all the big cities in Texas.  My trailer repair guy showed up, did some work, and left me with a massive power outage.  The repair backfired, so I had to pack and move the trailer to a big indoor shop.  Once the repairs got done I was motivated to leave Texas early and headed right out onto the highway from the shop.  I left three days before my rent ran out just to see the warm deserts of Arizona again.  Christmas with my family was calling.

I was able to use my camp time to repair and organize life in the trailer after a summer off at home in Wyoming.  Repair expenses were partially offset by lower gas costs, and I may be reimbursed by at least one of the repair dealers later.  I re-started my daily workout routine which uses only light weights for a better pattern of healthy living.  I indulged some less healthy adventures in home cooking as we stocked the pantry again.

I did find alternative solutions for the space venture while I was working in camp.  I have identified aeronautical design, aircraft fabrication, propulsion, and guidance sources.  We are recruiting potential corporate leadership and vendor sources now.  Exodus Aerospace will be born soon.

A small unmanned suborbital space plane is of little value at first, but the tools and teams we develop will scale for greater ventures to come.  We will connect investors to real customer value in stages, even as we connect to orbit in stages.

For now I am enjoying the holidays with my friends and family in Arizona.  We will be growing a bigger Exodus Aerospace family along the way too.  The model airplane will be transferred to a new builder, and we will meet part of the fabrication team while we are here too.  The trailer is an important part of this venture as we can bring the effort together from several states as we grow.  It has been a long road as the older posts show, but it is paying off now.
