Haha, great book. So this is just like a plastic fence. I suppose it could be used also for the water rocket car cage if they let you use plastic but I think it has to be metal mesh.

The first full speed test of the Mayhem Bobsled scheduled for tonight had to be postponed on account of snow. Here's the launcher on the trailer one hour after I loaded it.

Looks to be 2 ft minimum in the front, as deep as 4ft in the back. Sled mountain is now 8ft. The view from my back garage door.

It's not even March yet and we've already had to replace the impeller belt on our snow thrower. It usually lasts 2 winters!
