Saturday Snippets: 20.August.2016

Our summer has finally come, mid-August! The mornings have been lovely and warm, and the heat of the day makes us glad for our east-facing apartment. I think our weekend is going to be filled with a bit of power-endurance training and a bit of cycling, most likely a bit of work on this guy, and then the weekend rewards of and this and probably a little of this. Hope your weekend is just as enjoyable!

Here are the snippets that caught our eye online during the week of 20.August.2016.

On Climbing:

On Eating:

On Repeating:

  • How common is your birth date? The infographic is pretty neat! Apparently mine is quite a common day (35⁄365). Lots and lots of September babies!

On the Moby Project (aka Sprinter Van Conversion):

  • We started framing a mock-up of the interior, with the same size of 80⁄20 we’re planning on using for the actual construction
  • It took a few days of work to finish, but ultimately was much easier to do in wood, than in the cardboard we had started working with
  • And now we have the benefit of visualizing our living space, we know exactly how much 80⁄20 we need to order, and we can figure out the little tweaks we need to make before doing the actual construction!

  • Next step? Figuring out refrigerator⁄freezer options and the Lithium ion batteries we’ll be installing. Progress!

Happy Weekend!
