Happy New Year!

Posted by noodleswap Jan 6, 2008

I spent the holidays with my family in Connecticut and after hopping off of the train when I got there was very happy to see there was snow!  We went sledding, snowboarding, and made fires every day.  I also brought my brother and his wife back into the city in between Christmas and New Years to take a day long peek at New York, as they live in Louisiana and do not often get up to see the big city.  So here are my pics of beautiful West Hartford and some of the sights of New York City.

Backwards GPS

Posted by noodleswap Dec 6, 2007

Okay, so I am working backwards here using my own global positioning system to figure out where I was when I took these pictures from the plane.  My GPS turned out to be the Jet Blue in-flight flight tracker, my eyes, and Google. As CURIOUS as I was to see if the GPS would get a better satellite signal 35,000 feet closer to the sun, I didn't have enough guts to turn on the device in-flight.  I left my unapproved electronic device with an on/off button, OFF.  Hence, the retracing of my steps to figure out exactly where I took the pictures while in mid-air!

 

These are my best guesses, since the flight tracker isn't entirely precise in showing you where you are from the plane.  But, I think I did a pretty good job.  Some of the places were easy to find on the map, but some were not so much--like that first crop-farming pic.  That one's up for grabs!  (Although I'm pretty sure I have the right portion of the state, tho.)

 

Take a look...
