We went for a walk around the Celery Farms (see the “Culture” section) this afternoon and came across this old tractor; it had steel tracks instead of wheels, a hand crank for a starter and this colorful rusty seat. We also saw a huge snapping turtle. I wonder if it was around when this tractor was running.
Then later Bradley and I spent some time experimenting and playing with the camera. Here is what he came up with:
This has been a long overdue speed upgrade for the service at the office. We can get up to 500mbps at this location but in reality anything over 100mbps will require some expensive hardware upgrades. At this new 75/75 speed it almost matches the speed at the offsite backup servers so those jobs will run much faster.
Conditions were perfect. I was in significantly better shape and more well prepared this year. I improved my time by approximately 30 minutes. I’m looking forward to improving again next year, the goal is to be under 4 hours.
Last minute preparations:
Things are very busy. I have been getting in a fair amount of rides given the weather, construction at the house and things being very active at work. I think for now at least it will be most efficient if I just leave my ride data on Garmin Connect and refrain from embedding all the updates here on my blog. So if you want to see whats happeneing regarding my rides and fitness tracking you can do so at my Garmin Connect Page.
I’ve had a worn out heart rate monitor for some time so many of these show incomplete data. I just received a new one and it looks like its working well.
