I finally decided it’s OK not to post a weekly update if there’s nothing worth talking about. You can always check the spreadsheet if you want to know where I’ve gotten to.
A pretty miserable week for distance. Saturday I was busy all day at Walt’s Secret Santa. We got 2 feet of snow Sunday and Monday. I think I heard it was largest or second largest November snowstorm on record. We’ve now had something like 1/3 as much snow as all last winter. Walking during Monday to Wednesday was limited due to sidewalk conditions — I suppose if I’d thought of it I could’ve brought my snowshoes to work and tramped around in Oakwood Cemetery, but I didn’t — and continued unpleasant weather. Threat of rain kept me in on Thanksgiving though it didn’t actually rain much. Today the meetup group had a hike in Camillus Forest. It was billed as a snowshoe hike but enough had melted or been tramped down that the trail was mostly bare. (Mostly bare mud.) Some of us brought snowshoes but we left them in the cars. 6 km. Good to be out there again.
One notable thing: On Tuesday, I did cross the 2000 km point.
This HiRISE picture of a candidate impact site is just under 100 km off to my east, and is not all that exciting, but it’s the closest I’ve been to a HiRISE site in weeks.
