Weekly Ephemera #82

Another early Weekly Ephemera post and for a good reason.

  • Tomorrow the Wife and I are flying to Tampa (It's been ages since I've flown domestic - all our flights have been international).  The Wife's cousin, who we visited last year, will be on vacation and they offered us the use of their condominium and car.  We will be spending the week exploring Tampa and the warmer weather.  The highlight of the week will be Tuesday when we scratch an item off my unwritten bucket list and go skydiving.  My stomach does flippity flops when I think of it.  It will be fun.
  • I walked two times this week for a total of 12.7 miles (20.4 km).  The last few days in Omaha have been foggy and blucky and it has been hard to get motivated to get out and move.
  • Speaking of walking, my GPS took a dump after I downloaded the last track so I had to buy a new one.  The old one was around ten to twelve years old and served me well on the Camino and the Appalachian Trail.  The new one, a Garmin eTrex 32X, is smaller and has a different interface that will need some getting used to but it seems to do what I need it to do so I'm happy.  The carabiner/belt clip from my old GPS unit fits the new one so a piece of old faithful persists.
