    Look what landed in front of my house last night!

    It was after dark last night when I got home from work and spotted something dark and sinister in the street in front of my house. This is what it was.

    This appears to be new and is in perfect conditions. Who does this belong to?

    -The NSA?
    -The Russians?
    -The Oregon air force looking for Admiral?
    -A member of the other TW forum spying on my new super secret TW mod?
    -Tony checking to make sure my chain is properly cleaned and lubed?
    -A neighbor kid who is crying now because his new birthday present didn't return home?

    I tried to post this thread last night but couldn't because I wasn't able to get internet access. Is that a merely a coincidence, or:

    -Should I start wearing a tin foil hat and looking over my shoulder for black helicopters?
    -Should I open the thumb drive and see if it contains Hillary's emails, or Trump's tax returns?
    -Can I use the rechargeable battery to jumpstart my TW?
    -Can I duct tape it to my helmet and use it to float over those pesky water crossings that Joemama has planned?
    -Why didn't I get a GoPro with it?

    So many questions. . . . . . . .

    Buddy had one of those... I was flying it once when it got out of range and just took off over the neighborhood. Luckily, was able to recover it.

    Check with your neighbors. They probably had a signal interruption and the thing took off on its own.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    HA! Install homing control device, sell drone on local Craigslist. New owner turns it on for first time, and it flies back to TW-Brian - then repeat. GENIUS!

    Oregon and the OAF is safe from me for a while, I'm headed the other direction! I like you're thinking though!
