Motorcycle Roadcraft – Avoiding a SMIDSY Crash

In my limited experience aboard my motorcycle, I’ve come to learn just how much different it can be than driving a car.  Traveling on two wheels is much more physical, more mentally involved, and unbelievably more unforgiving than driving a car.  Motorcyclists cannot afford to allow our minds to wander too much while we’re moving, […]

High Power Rocketry – What’s Your Neighbor Building In His Garage?

High power rocketry is an interesting hobby / mental illness.  I’ve gotten into it in the past, but left for a few different reasons.  There was the expense for one thing (propellant isn’t free) and there were a few personality conflicts as well.  I may very well get back into rocketry, but I don’t think […]

The Messerschmitt Bf-109 was one of Nazi Germany’s most feared and respected fighter planes during WWII.  There aren’t that many real ones still flying, but I found this great video of one of them in action.  If you look at the cowling, you can see that the exhaust stacks are on the lower portion of […]
