I was wandering around Northern Ontario, Sudbury, Englehart, Cochran and the CN/CP/AC lines. Takes you right down to the mines, railyards, etc, etc.

https://www.lightningmaps.org Too bad it doesn’t have a loop feature though. Killer map app though.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 12:00:46 pm »
in the brilliant concept department, i also check google maps traffic overlay whenever I’m going to head on the highways, helps avoid traffic jams.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 11:59:47 am »
I don’t know if AARR modifies his exercising regimen and timing based on rain possibilities. I know the route is basically the same most days.
@ Jetlink « Mon 10:42:23 am »
Brilliant concepts from rrfan.com
@ SD80MAC « Mon 10:36:33 am »
Yes, checking the radar before heading outside might help you avoid getting wet, one would assume
@ ~Z~ « Mon 10:23:51 am »
maybe you are watching the weather radar a bit better? i check it before biking, and generally always helps a ton.
@ AARR « Mon 9:35:41 am »
I’ve managed to avoid most, but not all, of the rain and snow to date
@ AARR « Mon 9:35:06 am »
However, this year it’s been the opposite
@ AARR « Mon 9:34:52 am »
And I’ve supported it with statisitics
@ AARR « Mon 9:34:24 am »
So I’ve mentioned in the past my bad luck avoiding rain while I’m excercising espeically when biking
@ AARR « Mon 9:33:34 am »
Great timing ~Z~
@ ~Z~ « Mon 9:20:11 am »
saw the incoming rain, so did a quick 45 min walk. just started to sprinkle as i got back on my property.

I got busier this weekend than I thought I would. Chip’s Musical Musings will debut sometime this week.

I did almost 50 miles this morning. I wasn’t about to sandbag the last 3 miles. I hate doing that.

Rock hunting? Copper? Silver?
@ ~Z~ « Sun 7:50:12 pm »
wifey is rock hunting in the UP, so I’m on kiddo duty. Friday weather looks good so far. need to burn more vacation days, so hoping dry for a bike ride
@ ~Z~ « Sun 7:48:30 pm »
mowing of the lawn complete. kiddo mowed the front at least. gas mower finally died, so got an electric. so much quieter and lighter weight, mulches better too. can have my ear buds at a lower volume too, so that’s a plus.
@ ~Z~ « Sun 7:46:51 pm »
I’ve had many times at night that I flick my headlight to top brightness when cars are being turds like that. waving fists of fury at them :)
@ ~Z~ « Sun 7:46:09 pm »
frustrating when that happens SW.
@ SW « Sun 7:16:05 pm »
Subdivisions, sidewalks, 275 bike trail, MI Airline trail.
@ AARR « Sun 7:15:22 pm »
Did you ride on a trail?
@ SW « Sun 7:15:16 pm »
Frustrating at times, though. I actually banged on a guy’s hood for nearly hitting me as I approached a stoplight while on a sidewalk bike path and about to cross the street on a green signal. And that was the 2nd time it happened during the ride. Yelled at the first driver. Both appeared embarrased.
@ SW « Sun 7:11:17 pm »
Yes. Couldn’t ride yesterday and limited rides Thurs / Fri. So wanted to make up a few miles. Might have been my longest ride of the year by a couple miles.
@ AARR « Sun 6:30:53 pm »
Nice ride SW. Is that a little further than your average ride?
@ SW « Sun 5:52:43 pm »
Bikey complete. 32 miles, 2:23, 13.4 mph, 1700 cal. Went from home to downtown Wixom and return.

Nope. Doesn’t really impact us. There are fire fighting TFR’s in the area of the actual fires to keep non fire fighting aircraft out but those are usually low altitude. like 3000 agl and below. Not any place we would be anyway.

Chain started slipping a few days ago on my favorite bike. I think the 54t big chain ring is wore. The ride was tough tonight. Slipped off a couple of times. Probably the chain is wore too. I had to clean some rust of and completely re lube it two times this summer; both times after it got wet. Also bunged up my front deraileur slightly during one of the chain slip episodes.
@ Jetlink « Fri 11:42:33 pm »
Bikey complete. 15.52 miles. My favorite route.
@ Chip « Fri 11:30:24 pm »
First one will go up at some point this weekend then. Since it’s been brought up, the first contestant will be Spock’s Beard.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 11:28:43 pm »
by all means, yes. I watch more live concerts on YouTube than most of an other content, always looking for more good performances to see
@ Chip « Fri 6:54:56 pm »
What would you all say if I started a new thread in the odds and ends forum about music? I’ll call it Chip’s Music Musings. I’ll write up some of my favorite albums and/or Bands for you guys to check out and provide YouTube links to standout songs worthy of highlighting. I’ve always wanted to do something like that and you all seem pretty open minded.
@ Chip « Fri 6:49:34 pm »
Oddly enough that’s not the album I would recommend starting with even though it’s definitely their best. That honor would go to Day For Night, which was the album previous to that one. There's 3 distinct SB eras, but by far the best is the Neal Morse era. The other 2 really only have 1 great album each but in the NM era every album is fantastic.
@ Chip « Fri 6:48:44 pm »
I could go on and on about them, but I won’t do it via chat. One of my top 10 favorite bands for sure.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 5:06:22 pm »
I bet you are right that not many have heard of Spock’s Beard. I hadn’t until today, but not too shabby sounding.
