My desire to travel 200 miles or more comes up almost weekly. It is not the desire for travel just to travel, but to go to a destination, do something there or buy something there and then return.The need to travel 200 miles or more only comes up once every several months.
I live my life one airline ticket at a time Besides covid - it's rare I'm not hoping on a jet at least weekly between work, family, personal obligations - never mind my own personal wants... With some of my routes having crappy service or the large airports being hours from destination & expensive taxi/uber options - its often preferable to fly myself. With most airline tickets being bought fairly last minute - often its cheaper to fly.My desire to travel 200 miles or more comes up almost weekly.

Time and/or payload are generally the limiting factors. Aircraft limit one parameter and ground transport limits the other.
My comments? I can tell you that if I had a GoPro running on yesterdays Rocket flight it would have looked very similar to the first video, except we (me and another Rocket) were doing 220 knots, more G's, more inverted, and my right hand wasnt working the stick like I was churning butter.Toobuilder - from Rapter NG thread - "I guess a cross country in the Mojave desert in an ultralight isn't a whole lot of fun."
Since you live in the desert I am interested in your comments on Rich Parker's You tube channel
If you assume an ICE then it's simple, the Hydrogen storage systems cost and weigh a lot more, and the fuel isn't available at airports over almost the entire planet.I am trying to get some weights vs energy for hydrogen system compared to gasoline system.
Then why not use a cascade system? The only limit would be the rate of replenishing the system between customers. The cylinder swap behind the customer interface could all be automatic.From what I understand, the storage tank fills a tank at the pump, and that tank is what fills your car.
The cylinder swap is "automatic" just like at a gas station, a truck drives up and hooks up at an interface. ( hoses ) If a station uses a cascade system alone or with high pressure pumps & a header tank is determined by anticipated volume & delivery frequency.
