Angry So what did you do with your Epic this past weekend? I sent mine up into space...

Well.. not all into outer space, made it to near space up to 101,001 feet. Sent my Epic (running Mammon's Bonsai DK28 rom, btw ) along with a Moto Backflip for video recording, still photos, and GPS data logging, up in a high altitude weather balloon (along with a Geocache) from North Carolina, USA Saturday morning around 933AM EST, It traveled about 124 miles away, reached a max altitude of 101k feet whereupon the balloon burst and landed safely via parachute around 1148AM. Got some pics uploading if anyone wanted to see them over at: gaia.terrasunder.org
I think my Epic is pretty damn EPIC now So.. what did you do with your Epic this past weekend?

(unfortunately it was an extremely cloudy day with some rain, sleet and then snow later on so all we have is curvature pics with clouds, but still cool nonetheless)
