How To Lose A Rocket In Three Easy Steps

Step One- Prepare to launch

Step Two- Launch

Step Three- Land in a BIG tree

Yes, it's visible in the last shot here, but even zoomed WAY in it's hard to see. Look about halfway down, left of the trunk. Sheesh.

I've never been able to retrieve a model rocket.

The last one the kids and I launched was devoured by 2 large pit bulls.

If you only had one of those big tree-shaker machines they use to harvest pecans.....I think it would be fun to have regardless, but it would be useful in this case.

In Seattle? Surely we'll have a day of 20 mph gusts sometime in the next week or so.

Or you might be able to nudge it enough with a helium balloon on a long string.

If not, lets hope it doesn't bean some old lady walking her dog in the park, we all hear about it on the news and they find your picture here on the www. Probably too lightweight to actually qualify as a widow-maker.
