Still alive.

I thought I'd put up a little post to let everyone know I'm still alive. Looks like things haven't changed much since my last post, other than it appears right on track. Not sure if the Dems will take back both the House and Senate, but a big swing is already gaining momentum. I may write something in the near future about the Geneva Convention issues and detainees.

A little pressure...

I'm starting to feel the pressure of the fall season coming on. I have finally removed all the antennas, wiring, etc. from my wrecked probe. Now all I have left to do is install it all in my current one. I've been debating on whether or not to build a platform to mount all antennas, devices, etc. to on the roof, or just to directly mount everything. I really don't have much to mount, but my problem is adding to it in the future. I may want to add another radio, or get a Wilson antenna for my data connection, or maybe something else. Moving stuff around will create more holes than I would like, even though I will never resell it. Bah, now I'm just rambling. I think I'll just mount it them directly. I also need to buy another piece of 12" x 12" plexiglass for my laptop platform and form it.
On a side note, I've started carpooling with a couple people from Edmond to Stillwater. This means I will have to pay a little more attention to the space I take up with equipment.
Hope they aren't adverse to storm chasing... :)

My first purchased chase video

A good chaser friend of mine, Steve Miller, recently purchased and reviewed a chase video. I highly value this friend's opinion, and being a good review, I decided to purchase my first chase video. I haven't purchased videos in the past not because I don't want to support fellow chasers, but because I have 3 kids to support, and the sparse money I spend on chasing goes for the essentials. My decision isn't based soley on his review though, as I have heard good things about the producer's past work, and I repect him as a knowledgable chaser. So as soon as I receive it, we'll see what I think of Shane Adam's Lemonade.
