Burlington / Lake Champlain

Lori and I just got back from a weekend in Burlington, VT. Lori took these amazing pictures while we were walking along the boardwalk along the lakefront at sunset.

This Is Not the Exit You’re Looking For…

And yes, this was the only door around.

Fibonacci Clock

I saw a cool idea for a clock on a Kickstarter, and decided to build my own. The idea is that the clock shows the Fibonacci sequence (as high as 5, at least), and you tell the time based on which cells are lit up which colors. The sequence - starting with the smallest cells and increasing from there - goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5. You figure out the hours by adding up the values of any cells colored green. You figure out the minutes by adding up the values of any cells colored blue and multiplying by 5 (giving the clock a 5-minute resolution). If a cell is colored red, it should be counted in the sums for both hours and minutes. I really like it - it's got a very art deco feel to it.

Arethusa Falls

On the same day as Black Cap, we also hiked in to see Arethusa Falls in Crawford Notch. Supposedly they are the tallest falls in New Hampshire, and they were flowing pretty well that day. I've been there several times in the past, and sometimes they are just a trickle.

Black Cap – 2016

Hiked Black Cap with a group from work - and Carter decided to tag along this time. She's been up here many times before, but it's been a few years since the last time - so it felt good to get her up there again.

CNC Name Plate

I used the CNC machine to make a desk nameplate for a friend I work with. I bet he regrets telling us his nickname! The other side has his real name on it, but I prefer this side. :)

Field Trip – Odiorne State Park

Lori and I chaperoned a field trip to Odiorne State Park. Our group ended up consisting of just Carter and one of her friends. It was pretty cool to explore the tide pools and look for sea life. The weather was pretty amazing too.

Mount Monadnock – 2016

We always start the season with Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH. We had a pretty good turnout this year! This actually happened a while ago, but I forgot to post the photo.
