  1. Q: Who are "Overland Experts?"

    or, "Look what I found in my backyard."

    A: They’re how National Geographic gets to the “Geographic” in a given “Nation”
    So while working with the fam at the hardware store, one of my favorite diversions is watching out our giant front windows which view the parking lot and Halls Road (US rt1) at the multitudes of passing cars. Anyone reading this who knows me knows I’m a bit of a automobile enthusiast. They also know I have issues with the hordes of SUVs on America’s roadways. The more informed ones know I am also fascinated by real-life off-highway vehicles, like the ones that reside off road with the purpose of getting people to remote areas. On paved roads in the hands of soccer moms they are a down right danger. Off highway, on unpaved roads and trails, in the hands of experts, they are an invaluable tool.

    Thus, when I saw two Rovers outfitted for expedition on two different days in our lot (one Land-, one Range-), I was more than curious. Seeing the second one, I noticed a URL, http://www.overlandexperts.com, I wrote it down as fast as I could. Today I visited the Overland Experts and found out that a world-class expedition trainer, outfitter, and leader resides only a few short miles north of here, in Hadlyme, CT. Sweet.

    I’ve always been elured by backcountry expeditions. These guys actually do this stuff. They recently took NatGeo to the north of Vietnam. I think it’d be fascinating and thoroughly entertaining to be the driver of part of a wilderness expedition. Well these guys do that for a living. I hope they come back to the store soon, so I can pick their brains…

    Well, a very basic implementation of a comments setup is in place. I'm not sure how well it'll work over time. But hopefully the version with the code fork will be more robust and not have any weird bugs, which I'm sure this version contains.

  3. Moving on...

    So now that I've gotten a job offer I'm going to work on this blog a bit... I've got a couple other things to do too, but hopefully I won't need to stress over sending my resume all over the state, so I'll get a bit more time.

    I've worked out some more development things that have to be done. Thus this will go live as version .04

    The next incarnation will be written a bit better from the back-end and in turn add a bit to the template system on the front-end. Hopefully I won't hit any crazy snags.

    Boo yah!

    Well, after a bit of searching and a few interviews I was offerred a job today from Amphenol. While it's not solidified yet I am under the impression that they want me. I just have to wait till January when things calm down from the end of the year junk.

    Hopefully I'm not just getting yanked around.
