I lost a few dollars and no one else did. I was able to get some of the financing transferred to my construction company. By two years ago, I had put together a good work team with good equipment and client base. I was in a position to start financing some small technical hardware, I thought. The construction industry is not healthy right now and a good team etc means you might be able to weather the storm, not spend chunks of change on a rocket hobby. I estimate at least two years before my business can be in a position to do what I thought I was going to do five years ago.
I have a number of aerospace concepts and opinionsÂ that I would like to put out there. These are not calls for action or an insistence on being taken seriously, just ideas that could use feedback. I consider it an admission of failure that I am trying to write instead of building hardware.
