Floataroo

Eyyyy, finally managed to find a Royalex solo canoe. I’m not in love with the color, but this thing was made in Florida in 1996; the color strikes me as very honest to 1990s Florida.

(Dirty backyard because California is on fire and I didn’t want to sweep!)

I’ve been hunting for an Old Town Pack for like two years, but they’re pretty hard to find in California. This is really more kayak country. Anyhow, the Solo 13 compares pretty well to the Pack, so I’m just gonna learn to love the ’90s Taco Bell color and add some purple to lean into it.

It’s a Gas

I’ll be the first to admit that T-Max and a Canonet aren’t A+ for this sort of thing, but the trails that I haven’t been to a kajillion times were inaccessible for various reasons, so I didn’t want to bring the Fuji again…

Thinktacular

Linux Funtime ThinkPad Refresh Time! This is an X250 that was getting a little tired-out. It’s got an i5-5300U – i.e. it’s not too hopeless, but it just needed a little love. Particularly since the 1366×768 TN panel is truly and irredeemably horrible.

Get that old screen outta there, in favor of a 1080P IPS panel.
Industry-standard mustache comparison test of new screen.
New SATA and m.2 SSDs.
Clean off the old thermal crap, give it a fresh application.
Tasteful hologram cat sticker to match MacBook Pro.
Done.
