Doing the Nightwalk

On Friday 29 May 2009, 11 of us trailwalkers:
Team Eat Drink Walk Sleep (Yvonne, Will, Avelyn, Nathan)
Two Peas Pursue a Spud (Pauline, Paul, Sue, Spuddy)
Flying Mozzie Hidden Leech (Moz, Brett, Evelyn)
braved the rainy weather and met up at the car park in Apple Tree Bay.

After a brief discussion in the rain it was decided that we would go ahead and walk from CP2 (Berowra) to CP3 (Apple Tree Bay) with a 'safety' car in Mt Kuring-gai (just after the dreadful long driveway).

Headtorches on we headed off through the streets of Berowra towards the trail. With a few stops to stretch, count off and just to work out where the trail was, the group managed to be injury free and finish the walk in 4 hours and 14 minutes. Not too bad for limited vision on the trail and a wrong turn by half of the group. We worked out the walkie talkies don't work too good in this terrain!

Headtorches: give a surprising amount of light. But probably not enough if it was an individual person but the light from the person behind and infront helps a lot! Very different experience but certainly not unpleasant.

Fitness Passport membership locations on a map

My Fitness Passport membership is now live!  Woohoo!  So I get access to a heap of gyms and pools and classes.  For someone who isn't interested in a gym membership I'm not quite sure why I have joined!!  Peer pressure. I'm very fortunate that I have the opportunity to join this type of membership as then I can go just about anywhere in NSW.  The membership site gives you a list of them but I had no idea how close they would be to either work or home so I copied and pasted the details into a Google Sheet and then put them in a Google Map.  I thought it may be useful for others too. You can access the map by this link too:  ​ https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=10hH5PtKlBzeEzV6AoLev4vxqNoDxzR6y&hl=en&usp=sharing

Magic Mirror - IKEA frame hack

Somehow I stumbled on the Magic Mirror project and of course I wanted to build it.  Forget that I was in the middle of another mirror project (still not finished) but this one is now built! Here is the finished product (still a bit messy as I put a small console type table under the mirror):  The console table was added... as I needed to hide the power point from my dogs who like munching on power cables if too accessible.  Before I mounted it on the wall I had it propped up on a dining room chair...  There are plenty of resources on how to get the magic mirror tech side of things done.  The key resource is the Magic Mirror site: https://magicmirror.builders/   I've also used Google a lot and Jayen helped me a lot too on various bits and pieces.   The main thing that is different is the way I put the frame/mirror component together.  Here are the high level details (oxymoron?): 1. bought mirror tint from Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/50x100cm-W

Trip to Kenta

Had lunch with Nikki at Kenta on Thursday 29 Dec 2005. Food was OK, but definitely cheap! Good value. I had the sashimi lunch set which included sashimi, salmon salad, rice and miso soup. Was very full! Meal was approx $10 - $11... here's a pic of what I ate. Nikki had the teriaki chicken and calamari rings meal. That looked good too. And someone at a table next to us had a soft shell crab tempura set. Oooh if only I spotted that :)
