As some of you may know, I have been attempting to test out my trigger, but keep getting what I call "ghost" lines on wondfos. They are super faint and look like evap lines, but I am pretty sure were showing up at the 5 minute mark. I dipped another wondfo this morning and got another barely there line, I was convinced that these had to be evaps so to confirm my suspicions, I dipped a FRER and a second line popped up right away! I can't believe it. Our one little blast made it! 

Here's the pic, the line is hard to see but it is there and darker in person:

 Beta #1 is in, it is 14.6.  Not as high as I would have liked.  Now starts the long 4 day wait until Monday for Beta #2.
