FULLY OPERATIONAL

April 11, 2015

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU…

Starting a business is often hard, and more so when you start into aerospace.  This is not like starting a sandwich shop.  Software ventures don’t need massive design and fabrication costs.  Partners and investors know how hard aerospace is and they are hard to find.  While I am working to do this I have mundane medical and maintenance needs.  The desert offers reminders of the shortness and cruelty of life.  My own health suggests that time is limited for mortal man.  To the eyes life is heartless and harsh, but my Christian faith has eyes to see hope in the shadow of death.

A RAINBOW IS OFTEN BROUGHT TO US WITH A STORM

THE SIGNS ARE INTIMIDATING

BUT CAN OFTEN JUST BLOW OVER

LEAVING AN EMPTY THREAT

FOR THIS RABBIT THE COYOTE THREAT WAS REAL THOUGH

IMG_1018bAND THE DESERT ALSO TOOK THIS JAVELINA (WILD PIG)

WHICH ONCE OFFERED A REAL THREAT

I have worked for several years to design and patent a system that may solve problems.  I have worked alone, and spent my own money up to this point.  Now the job will be too much for a single hand, and we need to incorporate.  To this goal I am inviting partners to share equity in the venture.  At times the efforts don’t seem to be producing results and my faith is challenged.  Over time it seems like a running gun battle with setbacks and counter offensives.  Slowly the evidence of progress is coming in.  In the old days of naval warfare one might not see how much damage the enemy was taking because of the distances.  One would be keenly aware of the damage done by the enemy because of its immediate close impact.  By faith they would praise the lord and pass the ammunition until a victory was won.  So we press on and continue to build here.

DON LANDRUS IS TAKING IN THE BLUEPRINTS FOR THE MODEL HE WILL BUILD.  I THINK WE FOUND AN INSPIRED MODEL BUILDER HERE.

WHO ELSE KEEPS A PILOT IN THE GARAGE?

OR A HOUSE FULL OF AIRPLANES?

AND I MEAN FULL!

EVEN HIS OWN FULL SCALE MODEL

WORKING CAN BE OPPRESSIVE AS THE HEAT COMES ON

MAY 2011

BUT I BUILT THE MODELS IN EVEN MORE HEAT IN THE PAST!

SO I REBUILT THE OLD CORK BOARD WITH NEW PARTS

IMG_1001

THIS TIME REINFORCED WITH OAK BRACES

AND RETURNED IT TO SERVICE ON THE BACK WALL

MAJOR CLEANING AND CARPET REPLACEMENT

THE TOOL ROOM IS IN FULL SERVICE ON DECK

THE NEW JUTE RUG AND RUNNER IN PLACE

AND THE SCREEN CLOSURES ALLOW COOL RUNNING IN HOT WEATHER.  THE TOY HAULER MAKES A USEFUL OFFICE CONVERSION PLATFORM.

SO WHILE THE STATION APPEARS TO BE UNDER CONSTRUCTION…

Oh, I’m afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive…

We have a few weeks before the Space Access 2015 conference in Phoenix.  I hope to generate more participation at that event.  Then we will be ready to retreat from the land of heat and reenter the cooling breezes of Wyoming.  Will we be ready to incorporate in that tax-free environment?
