The top arrived in the mail, today, so I took a few photos to show off my new outfit. I feel compelled to mention that I am 52 years old in this photo. I know it’s not a popular thing to do, but I can’t help but brag just a little. You may not understand if you’re 20, but those of you who are over 40 know what I’m saying. 🙂
I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this outfit getting muddy, but it’s possible. I’ve figured out how to protect my clothes, so it could happen. In the mean time, I will be making another archery video. I’ll be happy to share that when it’s done.
On a citizen science note, I’m in the process of building a tide gauge that will log the rise and fall of the tides in my swamp, so I can make better predictions about when to go out for adventures. If it works reliably, I may invest in some kind of GSM interface so I can get real time data from the gauge for planning trips. The first version will just log readings to an SD card that I will retrieve for evaluation.
The tide schedule for the long weekend isn’t very promising. I’d have to go out at 06:00 Saturday morning, unless I want to hit a late low tide on Friday. I tend to avoid evening tides, because I end up cleaning up at sunset which is when the alligators are looking for food. Maybe Monday morning will work out, since Monday is a holiday. If I do get out, I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
