Dennis, that was a compass set that was in a metal box with a thin cardboard cover. It was nice and heavy. I think it came from Birddog 7.

Watching TV this morning caught an episode where Rick and crew on American Restoration restored a rocket slide like the one out in the field at Effingham.

Pretty cool  Big smile

I bet the motel could be talked out of it pretty easily. The ones I talked to seemed to talk like it was an unwanted liability to them.....leftover from another motel I think. (most certainly from another place in time)
 
 
(not the actual Effingham rocket)

Given the dimensions I bet someone here whose initials are J.P. could whip up some plans and start reproducing them. The slide might be able to be bought commercially already.

Its really basic actually.....we decided that weekend you could probably build one onsite as cheap as you could move one. (I think it was me and Damar that was talking about it)....not that I feel like you're wrong in your assumption, I'm pretty sure he could handle the job very well.

They are pretty common (especially for somebody that travels as much as you do)

There was even a video of someone sliding down it at some point.   Embarrassed...but I'm pretty sure that's probably out of circulation by now.LOL

Here is the Effingham Rocket. It would be expensive to move, but what a cool piece to have at your house.
