Beer Travel / Spinning the Beer Wheel at the Bodega in La Crosse Wi
« on: March 15, 2012, 11:16:31 AM »
The Bodega in downtown La Crosse is one of my favorite bars on the planet. They have a lot of good beer  but what i like most is the beer wheel.  Its a bicycle rim that one spins and each spoke corresponds to a beer.

Spin #1:  Chimay
Spin #2:  Dortmunder

I think today is gonna be nice.   Its 77 degrees in March and the beer is flowing.

Spin#3:   we'll see

I saw the H1 to H3 and the T1 at the museum in Greenwich some time back.  Have they been moved?
No, they haven't moved.  The clock collection at the British Museum covers clock history but there are some nice examples fo the evolution of navigation clocks.

Beer Travel / Re: Iceland bound...
« on: March 05, 2012, 09:13:05 AM »
Interesting.  if I recall, the last time I went to Iceland beer wasn't legal which is why we would sneak it in by hiding it anywhere we could in the plane.    A Budweiser was an awesome bartering tool.  How things change.

Beer Travel / Thanks to Phillamb in Paris
« on: March 05, 2012, 09:02:21 AM »
My GF and I met up with phillamb168 in Paris.  He took the time to take us to a unique (for paris) bar called brewberry where we enjoyed some awesome beer and conversation.   When he picked me up, he handed me a bottle of Westvleteren which was quite, and i mean QUITE a treat. 

Also had some Cantillon and some others.  All in all, a great diversion.  Thanks phil.

Great book.  It was an amazing problem:  "time" that is.    They have an awesome display of clocks at the British museum in London.   Some of the clocks related to this issue are there.  My friend  and I dead reckoned across the Atlantic once in a cessna 172.  We hit the Azores with about 15 miles of error.  We came back using a handheld aerial sextant and a clock and were dead on at the Azores and Canada.   

We didn't have a GPS (they werent available yet to mortals) or SATNAV.  We could have used Loran I suppose but we figured if mariners could use a sextant, then we could.  It was very interesting to generate the calculations and fix the positions.  We had an opportunity to do that again with a GPS and the only real issue was being fast enough with the calculations to have a valid fix.  We found that it took about 8 minutes to do the work (we weren't professional sextant users obviously)  and we were moving at twice the speed as we were in the cessna 172 so we had 20 mile errors just because of our rate of speed (at least based on the GPS data). 

It was an interesting process.  The same guy I made those trips with later sailed his 40 ft sailboat from California to Australia via Bikini Atoll using sextant only navigation.  He had two handheld GPS' on board but they were both locked in a safe and he would have had to call me on a sat phone to get the code for the safe to get it out.  He never did.  I thought that was pretty cool.  He had a beautiful, antique sextant that he used for that trip.
