Picture(s) And Video A Day – 23 July 2010
Blogging – it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Sorry for that, but work this past week was anything but relaxing or invigorating. We had a few outages which meant I was busier than a bartender in Vegas on New Years Eve. After work I just want to go home, decompress, and get some sleep.
OK, enough of that – here’s the pics
I headed on over to New Frontier Armory / Infinite Arms after work after not darkening their doorway for two whole weeks Well, Guido who owns New Frontier Armory just got a new toy and I couldn’t pass up getting a pic of it These trucks don’t get the greatest gas mileage as you can imagine but I still want one in a big way – they’re just cool Of course, the fact that you can get one for between $1,500 and $2,000 might have something to do with it, too
I haven’t been geocaching in quite a while, but I still recognized this for what it is – a travel bug decal on a vehicle
If you haven’t heard of geocaching, check out geocaching.com and see if it’s something you might like. All you need is a GPS receiver and a computer, but a pencil helps as well sometimes Basically, people hide geocaches, record the GPS coordinates, post them on geocaching.com, and then you go find them and log your finds on geocaching.com. A geocache is basically some sort of container with a log inside that you sign. Many of them also contain a pencil to sign the log with and a few trade items like key chains and small compasses. You’re always supposed to trade up – leave something nicer than you took for others to trade. It’s a fun way to get out and do something
It will likely come as no surprise that it’s been HOT lately here in Las Vegas I took this picture while heading home from NFA/IA when it was about 114° or so and yes, it’s just as hot as you’d imagine. At least the humidity’s down near 10% so it’s pretty livable
Last, but not least I have a video for a change I set up my Nikon Coolpix S220 in interval mode to take 1 picture per minute looking out from my desk at work when I saw a thunderstorm building. Once I had all the pictures, I put ‘em into Windows Movie Maker and made a time lapse movie The music comes from YouTube’s “audio swap” feature and I think it works rather well
That’s it for now Here’s hoping you have a great Sunday
