Here are some stills from the trip:


















Once I discovered the belly damage,I retraced my 'steps' to the lake entry where I retrieved the diffuser,got up on the service road where I could jump on it and beat it a rubber hammer to get it inside.
Then I was off to the car wash in Wendover,Nevada,where I could get the salt off enough to remove the remaining belly section.
I found a flat-faced rock,and with the mallet,got it straightened enough to store it inside with the diffuser.
I made it to Scaled Composites,at the Mojave (California ) airport/spaceport,but alas,no one was 'home.'
In Arizona I ran across these early pickups.
