If we could be sure of that address where he showed on Sierra Pass Dr. was precisely where he stopped, I might be able to get someone to snoop around there for info about a 'rocket enthusiast'. I see him coming in to that Schaumburg area from the west on 8/29, then leaving westward on 9/1. Is that correct?
