Site / Location

Where is the site? What is it like?

It does not have a single rocket eating tree in sight, and has a very low turnout of rocket eating gods. There is however, a rocket swallowing stream to the south that enjoys the occasional rocket snack, especially electronics bays. Other than that, this is prime rocket launching country. It is friendly to rockets of all size and types, and families too!

On-Site Facilities

  • Not much!  Bring everything you need to sustain yourself for the day (or days if you are camping).
  • Porta Potties
  • Group Fire Pit (Bring wood!)
