My partner and I started off with a bunch of unknowns as things just weren’t working for either of us leading up to the event. I just got the wire I needed to wind the Voltage Intensifier Circuit (VIC) transformers on Saturday Oct 5th around 5:30 pm. I rushed to wire the VIC transformers up all Sunday and finished wiring them up on Monday the day I was supposed to be on the road to Boulder Colorado. Even the circuit I was going to use wasn’t all wired up but I had run out of time and had to start packing and getting ready to hit the road. I stayed up late on Monday packing everything and took off on Tuesday morning with an incomplete driving circuit, two totally untested VIC transformers, and got to Sacramento, about 50 minutes away, realized I had forgotten the transformer oil and had to turn back and go get it.
