      So glad you guys made it. If all goes well, I'll be on the playa with a decrepit chinese junk boat; maybe we can do a passenger trade if we run across you!

      Wow, thank you Jenny and David Apocalypse, and everyone else who has rallied in the last few hours to push us over the limit. I screen printed my outlook with all the kickstarter notices. I may frame it. It was just - so - beautiful.
      Tracy Feldstein has also stayed right on top of this event, fine tuning with great skill her donation like it was the burner under a moonshine still.

      Oh yes, the KGC rules, a long entertaining read,
      but there is a height limit, so, mostly reeled in, at least in town.

      A 75cm exercise ball of Helium will lift 656 grams,
      a 65cm ball 492 grams, yes this sounds promising for staying airborne,
      not bouncing much on the ground.
      May want to reel them in behind the body during headwinds,
      send them aloft ahead as silly sails in tailwinds.
      And some kind of net bags to captivate the floats against tidal ripoff.
      Buoyancy of 589kg or 442kg fully submerged.

      Thanks, Donald, for the comments and donation. Good idea about helium. I hope the exercise balls work because they are so much cheaper than pontoons and serenity should not be underestimated.

      A grand goal, this trifecta.
      Extra fun that the really difficult one is first.
      I like the exercise ball floats.
      Can they be helium filled so they float above the P-Car during the land legs?
      Probably too heavy from being sturdy enough.
      Some drag penalty for those spheres, but so serene.

      Only 20 days left. That's $75/day. We're not going to make it. If i were Indiana Jones, I'd go ahead and jump in the hot lava and get it over with.
