It is now 2019, and I am here to reclaim my crown as designer of the lightest Eve ascent vehicle Ever.   Yep, that's right, this still works. It's far more limited in the stuff you can lift, but it works. Reentry makes landing difficult now, but a ladder and some struts is still a very acceptable way to get yourself up there in the first place.  In some ways, it's easier with parachutes built into kerbals, and smarter SAS  for holding retrograde during powered landings. Plus, nodes persist
