Selling a bunch of hobby toys

Published on

tl;dr: I am getting rid of a bunch of toys I don't have the money or time to use.

When I moved out here, I had hoped I would use these, that I could have the time and energy to drive down to Mountain View or out to Stockton to make NAR launches happen. I, unfortunately, haven't.

I've had a lot of fun building and flying high power rocketry, but it's incredibly difficult for me to afford flying them while I live in the Bay Area. I spend more than half my income on rent, and can't afford a monthly drive out past Stockton to be able to launch these rockets. I don't have the time or energy to wake up at 5am on a Saturday morning to drive out there or 7am to drive to Sunnyvale to fly my drone safely. I imagine when I have the time and money and am in a place where I have more workspace, I will be able to revisit the hobby but for now it's basically impossible.

High Power Rocketry is super fun, and people who live in the area should get involved with LUNAR. I'm not super interested in bargaining with people on these; they are already getting listed for waaaaay under what I bought them for.
