My SBGN001 arrived

19mm lugs… bad. Really limits strap choices. Some of my 20s can be fitted as shown.

More as I wear it!

And yeah, I shot it next to the Bolt, both are personal milestones.


Going flying

I won a charity auction for a biplane ride, but the pilot was super super generous and offered to also let me come along for a lunch run in the Cirrus SR22. Got some stick time in both and had a truly spectacular day. Thank you Tom!

Modern plane and glass avionics. So nice to fly.

The to the 1941 Stearman. Also beautiful.

And very very basic. Not even a VSI and the gas gauge is not connected. 😉

Four times around the pattern, Tom let me some of the flying and oh my it was visceral. Hang your head out and hear the wind through the strakes!

Days don’t get much better.

Of course they have a Cub.

Yes Equilibrium

So this arrived today:

That’s the Equilibrium, the new model from Yes Watches. I had a small but prolonged role as an engineering consultant and got to visit Hong Kong twice as part of it. I chose the shiny black titanium case and orange accents because by golly I’m proud and I want you to ask me about it!

It took years of engineering and manufacturing obstacles, and of course a world financial crisis too, that didn’t exactly help. Bjorn et al: ya done great.

And today is tax day, I’m finishing ours on TurboTax, where I work and also have a small role. I’m proud of that, too. 😉
