Our regional burn event is located right at the border of Vermont, on part of Gerald Bull's old research/launch site. Still loads of random old structures around, and it's nice that sound complaints will have to come from our USA neighbours - so will take too long to reach us in practice. The "human hamster wheel" thing we build with my friend Vlad this summer, was attached to what I guess is a conical metal base of some old tower structure, on its side. Nice to see Bull mentioned on here, listened to a few documentaries about the dude, just out of curiosity and proximity. The funny thing is how everyone at the festival keeps thinking any structure around is some "rocket part". While the land owner keeps wanting to sell off anything made of metal for a few thousand bucks worth of scrap metal.
