This morning I finally found the name and phone number of the supplier I last used for Ammonium Nitrate. I called them and started the process to purchase a few thousand pounds. They even remembered me as “the guy that puts on Boomershoot”.
A couple minutes after making that call I received a call from the trucking company delivering a shipment of Potassium Chlorate. It will arrive in plenty of time for Boomershoot 2012 as well. I’m so pleased. I was a little worried that the PC would just barely make it in time. It turns out when I asked the supplier for the estimated shipping date they gave me the estimated delivery date instead.
In other news, earlier this week I made arrangements to meet the Internet provider at “Mecca” to connect up a (relatively) high speed low latency connection at the end of this month.
I’m currently on vacation in Alaska visiting our daughter Xenia and getting a little extra time to work on my exterior ballistics program for Windows Phone 7. I think I might even have it ready in time for Boomershoot 2012.
Everything is falling into place quite nicely.
