Visiting North Curry, day 4

All times are in GMT + 1 (Nijmegen time 🙂 )

A sunny day: at 11:30AM the day revenue was already 6Kw and current input level 1.14Kw. So far no worry about the solar panels during the last days. But I am curious what the technical people will discover 29 March… 😦 😦 😦

The day starts with packing the suitcase and handluggage:

A sunny last meal together:

NCY 03:00 PM – TAU 03:25 PM by car:

Upon Mary’s request we have extra time in Taunton at the fuelstation next to the busstop. I have to check the pressure in the tires, as Mary never does that, and the car had been out of use for 2 months. Front 2.15Mb and back 1.65Mb. Driving with Pierre has made me an expert with that machines… 🙂 😉 🙂 😉

But, upon arrival, the air machine at the BP station was out of order!

TAU 03:56 PM – BRS 04:53 PM, by bus South West Falcon:

WotW – edition 103#2

Walk of the World edition #103

Training #2

Subscription for the 103rd edition of the Walk of the World started 4th of February. Not without problems. Because there are 47,000 start permits to get. The server was open for on-line subscription from midnight, but hundreds of participants were eager to be the first to log in. So, within 30 minutes the server was out of order. Also because the organising committee had introduced a new phenomenon: your subscrip-tion is complete when we have received your payment (€84 / £74 / CA$126). But at night the servers of the financial institutions are busy anyway, and now there came on-line payments troubling the systems. So, when you were lucky your payment (and so your subscription) came through, but e.g. Pierre’s payment was a problem. But after a while, in the evening of that Monday, we both had our subscriptions. And, because we finished both the last edition of the Walk of the World, we are sure to get the start permit.

Today was the first training day in 2019. With a fresh 4 Celsius, but a blue sky and a lot of sun, we took an easy itinerary: home – via the center to Nijmegen East, then all South bound to Berg en Dal – via the Seven Hills way to Groesbeek – North bound to Nijmegen South – home.

The app on my smartphone reports as follows:

  • 290 minutes non-stop walking
  • 24.2 Km  (16.1M)
  • 31,152 steps
  • 1,968 kCal.
  • 6h 33m all-in: dep. 09h 45m arr. 16h 18m (2 stops, in Berg en Dal and a pub near the soccer club at Groesbeek).
