Default Equinox first run

Got out early while it was still cool to an schoolyard to try out my new Equinox. Pulled a few coins and pull tabs and scored a tiny Silver ring. The Gold colored coin about caused me to stroke out it's a 50 cent Euro gold colored just about the size of a ten dollars eagle.

I only have about two hours on the Nox so far. First impressions I like it I'll know better after I get a 100 hours or so on it.
