On Charles’s suggestion, David and I took MelonKart to the SwapFest (link: http://w1mx.mit.edu/flea-at-mit)
SwapFest was awesome! I enjoyed looking at all the parts up for sale – very tempting but I managed to walk away without doing much damage. I did buy a new lens for my Sony Alpha, a book on Fluid Mechanics (Binder, ’43), a Dwight-from-The-Office sticker for my sister.
But more importantly, MelonKart got some fresh air. Charles took it for a spin down the pavement that runs parallel to the rail road tracks. I then took it for a similar ride and blew a fuse. MelonKart has blown a 30amp fuse in the past but this was the first time a 40amp fuse blew.
More pictures from SwapFest are below but here are pictures of the 40amp fuse before and after.

SwapFest inspired me to at least read about amateur radio. Yes, on Reddit.
