Rickie Traeger Blog: Good Morning Everyone! Blog Updates On Draculaura, Quadcopter, Weather, SKYWARN & ARES, Etc…





 

Good morning everyone!

Shout out to the salt trucks crew, they did an awesome job yesterday as the weather came through.  They laid the salt down thick and was hardly an accidents that I am aware of. Many kudos!


Yesterday was warm and I was hoping to get a flight in. But the ceiling was low and it was wet out. So I did not get a flight in, as I was hoping for.


I bought a cheap VR setup. It was $9 at Walmart.  I was able to VR for the first time yesterday. Definitely an experience. I know everyone has probably experience Virtual Reality, besides me lol. But I was able to do it yesterday. I downloaded an app called Haunted House. I was hoping that it would scare me. But it did nit, but it was still a cool experience to do VR and walk around. It takes 15 hours, to recharge this thing, ouch!  But heck, for $9 you can’t beat it.


We had a good turn out for the Northern Illinois ARES and also SKYWARN nets last night. Had some new voices in there.  Definitely good to hear!  If you want to join in (Have to have your ham radio license) or if you want to listen in. It is Thursday nights on 147.195 repeater.  ARES is at 7 pm. SKYWARN is at 8 pm.  Be sure to catch them both!


Draculaura I think is getting ready to molt.  If you do not already know, Draculaura is my pet tarantula.  She has not been to active recently.  And been doing a couple of other key things, that gives me hints she is about to molt.  She has yet to do so, since I bought her.  So I kinda been waiting.  I keep her well fed, so it is just a matter of time. I will post updates on her as they become available.
