[edit] Plans

Looking to head out around 4:30 to get this on the road and maybe go for Speed Racer

[edit] Expedition

Planned to go and drive down the exit ramp after picking up a friend in Waukesha for something to do in the afternoon however these plans turned south and the afternoon slipped away when the raptors showed up. Needing inspiration to fight on I went to see "Lone Survivor" and after some inspiring feats of endurance had the spirit to go and defend the geohash if needed. As I approached the exit I surveyed the area at full speed as to not draw any attention I promptly doubled back around and exited my vehicle traipsing through the snow until I had arrived.

Snapped a few photos outside then got back into the vehicle to continue my drive home. Tried out a new GPS mapping app for iPhone and it looks like it worked. Still waiting for the "export" feature to work.
