You guys are throwing down some serious meters! Great job team! I had a slight kink in the chain these past few days. I had five bags of apples from a friend's orchard that were beginning to go bad; thus the applesauce project commenced. No time to row. Finally got it all canned up last night. 14 pints + 14 quarts of delicious homemade applesauce! I'm set for the year! Hoping to release my reindeer by the weekend.

Image Day 15 of 33...

Image Another Episode...bunny trails of the mind

The National Cathedral in Washington DC is a majestic place of worship, an Episcopalian cathedral that is the fourth tallest habitable building in DC. Construction started in 1907, the Teddy Roosevelt era. Many visits to Washington DC, but I've never been to the cathedral. Yesterday's state funeral for our 41st US President provided many views of the cathedral's interior amidst some towering words. I went looking for an online tour of the Cathedral, and before I knew it...I was down the bunny trail.

There is a Space connection to the Cathedral. The Apollo 11 mission donated a lunar rock for the purpose of creating a stained glass Space Window. It is remarkable, as is each mission into space. The Space Window was dedicated on the fifth anniversary of the lunar landing in 1974, with all three of the Apollo 11 astronauts present at the dedication. Here's a short video showing lunar rock placement and a few things about the Space Window

Note: Minnie says that despite Mata H's bad rap, she still likes her. Taking some license, we're rebranding Mata with a new British identity as Mata M16.


Hah ... my first thought was "why does my reindeer have a machine gun?"
It took a few clicks to parse that through the clues!

I'm baaaaak! Missed you all! Great to see that the LUNA-TICS are still going strong. Looking forward to being able to begin rowing from home again as my regular routine. I decided to quit going to Crossfit back in July due to repeated shoulder injury issues and Achilles tendon issues which were definitely connected to the workouts there. Hopefully everything is healed up, and this will be an amazing Holiday Challenge (just couldn't pull it off last year so soon after the auto accident - had to admit this disappointing conclusion after rowing day one on the challenge last year - first Holiday Challenge I have missed). I did a bulk upload from my data card of 7,344 meters which is my total meters for the season so far. You can subtract that amount from the meters I row and upload today to get my Holiday Challenge meters rowed today (didn't manage to row any yesterday before the guests arrived for dinner.)

Cool fox in the yard, K2!

Cheers to the Team!
Welcome back!
Good luck with this year's Holiday Challenge.

Image Day 16 of 33...approaching midpoint

Those of us who routinely use the Erg Data app know that it is usually a pretty quick sync of the data...except when it's not. Wait. I just did 12K meters and where are they?! I tried the transfer of the meters from the PM5 using a flash drive, but did not see the expected USB Logbook option. More work needed on this one, but a manual upload has now occurred.
