Bowling is done for the season. Basketball Tourney today and tomorrow and then basketball is done. Spring sports start in a few weeks. 1 on the JV softball team most likely, 1 on the varsity soccer team most likely, and 1 more playing spring soccer and baseball.

Pretty sure my fastest ground speed I noticed was 684 knots. But that was years ago and my memory of the event is getting foggy. Would be about 786 in mph. I wanna say I Remembered something about 714 knots once as well. But that would be 821 mph. Doesn’t seem right. Seems too fast. I do have a picture of it though. Not sure if mine or sent to me.

but they don’t talk about the flights heading into those winds :) I know they reroute around them if possible. World conflicts have an impact, like asian routes having to avoid russia.

Back to the bowling early in the morning :) Hey Jetlink, what’s the fastest ground speed you’ve managed in a plane? Just reading about a few commercial flights that hit 800+ mph ground speed over the weekend.

The house was vacant, so I had a good time rolling some balls and then resetting the pins manually. I got to climb up inside the mechanism and reset the pins like they used to do in the old days.

The lanes and all the equipment came from the former Holiday Lanes in Lansing when they switched from manual to automated lanes.

Walky complete. 2.67 miles around the streets of lake Odessa. 5 cryo trans reefers on the old team track by twin city foods. 2 pieces of MOW on track equipment poked in the spur at Caledonia Farmers elevator in town. Or as we call it the old co-op
@ ~Z~ « Thu 7:02:52 pm »
bikey complete here too, 15 mile loop. have a 1.3 mile walk planned in an hour.

I too rode my bike but I only got about 6 miles in and I rode it three times throughout the day so not quite like you Jetlink.
My riding is urban or what you could call urban living in Zeeland. There is a lot of bobbing and weaving going from the sidewalk to the road switching from side to side of the road dodging cars and people.

for some of the dense european countries, sure, but Sweden’s population density is even less than the US, and far less than michigan.

I don’t think most Eurpoeans realize how spread out everything is in most of the US compared to where they live
