Thanks everyone for checking in to HRVO Sun Evening net.
Topic was in the spirit of Halloween. If you were a kid right now, what would your costume be this year? Awesome answers and I appreciate the stories.
We hold this net every Sun at 6pm Pacific and 9pm Eastern.
We are looking for 1 more net control to help out that way each net control only has 1 time a month. Nets are fun and a great way to get to know the people in the group. Please let us know if you’re interested in running a net and Seumas will get you in the schedule.

Here’s some pics from my last adventure where I went fishing for a week in Alaska. Went with my uncle Bob from the farm (who raised me half of my childhood), his friend Bill and my older cousin Rob. Weather was amazing. Planned more on it being cold but had weather in the high 60’s. Ended up sunburnt! We fished Halibut, King Salmon, and Lincod. Caught mostly Coho salmon which I like too.
One of the festivities of the “Kieler Woche” event is a meeting of hot air balloons. They launch in the late afternoon only 2 miles away from our home – just a short bike trip. On some evenings they do a show called “night glow”. The atmosphere is very relaxed, you can walk in between the balloons while they are being set up and watch them launch from a few feet distance. Here are some unedited pictures, taken with a rather simple camera (night image taken with the phone).
I uploaded more images to https://photos.app.goo.gl/S84hjrmLRc9kx7RP7 and will leave them there, until I run out of space. And here is a short clip of the “night glow” – if you know the air band frequency you can listen to the instructions of the “director”: https://youtu.be/u5jjHwjjOAE
me & my Kiddo Mojo decided to venture up the service road to the top
only to discover you can no longer drive right to the lookout tower
as such here are some of my photos
