The only Dream doxes on doxbin rn are fake. And Dream, if you're reading this. I suggest you go cry to Chapter 286 of your retarded statutes:
Part 1 =Precursor=: Oh boy, am I ever about to start Drama for this... Dream aka Clayton Huff is an egotistical piece of human garbage who serves no purpose but to waste oxygen on this rapidly decaying planet. With that out of the way. We can get into the meat of this situation.
The first guy to dox Dream was "Generic Name", after he was dared to after being told Dream was "undoxable". Wanting to bolster his ego, he started working on a Dream dox.
According to DM's and Generic himself: The dox was leaked out to Dream, where he created a version with incorrect information to try and stop the spread of the dox: https://anonfiles.com/F5j8Mdidpd/holyfuckwhyisjapanesesuchabasedlanguageiliterallycannotwithyourpunsandetmolygies_jpg
He also proceeded to deny a lot of info, like numbers. Despite them supposedly being linked to his PayPal and numerous land records: https://anonfiles.com/96k1M8i0p4/isnortedgfuelthroughmyurethraandnowiminfertilepleasehelp_jpg https://anonfiles.com/7dkbMai9p0/skiddikscomehome_jpg
Scared, Dream offers to pay Generic in Bitcoin to help him take down the dox: https://anonfiles.com/7alaM1i4pe/genshinneedstolearnhowtoproperlyimplementandvalidatecaptcharesponseslmao_jpg https://anonfiles.com/5claMci0pc/imdyinginsideharderthanggfansubs_jpg
A Scared Dream stroking Generic's Ego: https://anonfiles.com/vdm2Mdiepa/evenfreddymercurydidntsuckmenoffthishard_jpg https://anonfiles.com/x3maM3i8p8/whenuforgettomuxfontsinurv2aftetimingthev1toawanakimaudiostreamnotrealisingitwasbitflipped_jpg https://anonfiles.com/zfm5M8ifpc/watchingbdremuxesofanimein2020whentherearemuchbetterencodesbecauseyoudontrealiseliveactionencodinglogicdoesntapplytoanimeftthebandingandhaloingcrew_jpg https://anonfiles.com/10maMbi9p7/doxingisntanimportantpartoftheswattingprocessanwayftherkz_jpg Really Dream, at the start. This was just some fun. But the more I looked into you, the worse of a person I found you to be. Part 1 Conclusion
Part 2 =Who is Dream?=: Who is Clayton Ray Huff? A rich YouTuber with over 10 Million subcribers who has never faced hardship in his life, living in a private, gated community (Wingfield North). Clay was born into a wealthy, upper-middle class American dream family. Never being told no or being disciplined as a child, he grew into a- spoiled brat who would wine and winge until he got his way.
The only hardship he ever faced was when his obese mother couldn't pay the mortgage on a home worth nearly a million dollars after the 2007 finacial recession, and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (6:08-bk-10204): https://anonfiles.com/F3Nez1c0p2/huhthatsweird_pdf
Dream started playing Minecraft under the IGN "Clayman13" on numerous servers. Later creating the account "DreamOnPvP" and then buying the account "Dream" after begging his obese mother for shekels.
During this time, Clayton also participated in systemic doxing and collaborated with many doxers: https://anonfiles.com/3fr1Mei1p4/Dream_if_you_were_smart_about_this_you_d_still_have_your_door_atm_jpg https://anonfiles.com/56reM9i8pb/doesanyoneelseslicetheirballsopenonacheesegraterwhentheygetitchy_jpg https://anonfiles.com/72r0Mai6pb/hypotheticallywherecouldisellajarofthicksmellydickcheeseformaximumprofitsimguessingonafetishsitebutidkaskingforafriendhahaha_jpg
Dream played on many servers, such as FaithfulMC, MunchyMC, Brawl, Minemen and more. All of which he sucked at. In fact, there are numerous videos of him getting walked like a dog across the map on Minemen and Faithful that you can find on YouTube. Dream's first YouTube channel is now wiped. "DreamOnPvP" contained numerous videos of him being an autist on many popular servers at the time, but was wiped after he started his new channel, "DreamTraps" Originally, "DreamTraps" was a channel dedicated to showing, well. Traps. Mainly in HCF and KitMap.
His channel wasn't that active for a while, but after years. He ended up finding success with more random, intricate and original videos. When Dream started playing minecraft- his ego got checked like a black person getting "checked" with a loaded shotgun to the head by police. As he started to grow, he started to slowly show more and more of his deplorable, selfish - egotistical side. Dream fans themselves are too braindead to see it, and haven't noticed the "slow descent" into Dream becoming a dickhead.
Fun Facts about Dream: Cheated on his girlfiend four times, causing her to cheat on him nine times whilst they were in a sexual relationship: https://web.archive.org/web/20200906025253/https://twitter.com/sqmglqm/status/1302439010724442118
There are also allegations of him sexually harassing women, cheating has pretty much been proved: https://twtext.com/article/1302454667054637056 (Dead Link)
Part 2 Conclusion
Part 3 = A Note on Other Doxes= Generic claims that an early version of his dox was leaked to Dream, and has provided Twitter screenshots proving that Dream deliberately faked Doxes to try and stop the spread of his info: https://anonfiles.com/F5j8Mdidpd/holyfuckwhyisjapanesesuchabasedlanguageiliterallycannotwithyourpunsandetmolygies_jpg
Dream claims to be "well respected" in the doxing community, and has said it lead to Generic's doxes being taken down in less than an hour by Doxbin: https://anonfiles.com/B2reM1i5p4/okgenuinequestionherearemykidneysnotworkingproperlyorisurinsupposedtosmellsimilartowhatyoujustatebecauseigenuinelydonotknowpleasedmmeifyouknowtheanswerbecauseimstartingtogetabitworried_jpg
The recent "Twitter Dox" was simply a fan who searched the public (fake) name "Clay Bryce" up on Instagram, see: https://web.archive.org/web/20200801033129/https://twitter.com/softysapnap/status/1289403310621958148
The shit about Sapnap getting "doxed" as well is legitimately just bullshit made up by fans with the IQ of a bathtub.
Currently, all doxes avaliable on Doxbin but this one (if you're viewing this paste on Doxbin) contain false information. Part 3 Conclusion
Dream, get fucked. Also, a note to anyone that's wondering. Generic is no longer involved, as he's gone off the project due to lack of time and interest. All information he has provided to us is legal under Florida Statutes Title XIX: Chapter 282: Part II
To your braindead lawyers: The information provided here is provided under good faith, and the majority is specifically legal under Florida Statutes Title XIX: Chapter 282: Part II. Emails and Passwords have been added from leads data (Legal under FTC Act Sec. 3, 15 U.S.C. Sec. 43) We believe the "SWATTING" as us and many others call it is covered by Florida Statutes TITLE XLV: Chapter 768: NEGLIGENCE: Part 1 (GENERAL PROVISIONS): 768.13-768.135 We believe this as our intentions were based off concern and good faith, as we had very serious concerns Plaintiff Clayton Ray Huff had kidnapped and was storing multiple children in his basement to repeatedly molest, torture, and rape over 9000 times. We were so concerned that we claimed the house was rigged with bombs and full of hostages. To prompt an increased call-out of the appropriate authorities.
RIP Dream Door 2020-2020

Keep an eye on what you're doing Techno, or else your head will be going off your neck like Dream's door went off its hinges. :) ^ A death threat, the only illegal thing in this dox. Ohhhh - and the SSN, maybe we went a bit too far with that one. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

2020.08.02 05:36 NutShellB Help! Please! (Homeowner, not HVAC professional

Hi all, I am hoping to get some help. First, the basics.
Location: Orlando FL Install date: Aug 2012 Outdoor Unit: Goodman 3 ton 14 seer Indoor Unit: Goodman single speed (replaced evaporator coil 2 months ago)
So here’s the deal. I have had two separate companies out every two weeks for the last two months. On 6/15 I noticed it was rather warm in my home. I called out Company A and they noted a leak in the evaporator coil on the inside unit. The first technician recommended replacement (not under warranty due to original installer not telling me to register it, and me being a young homeowner not knowing that the 10 year portion was contingent on product registration within the first 90 days of ownership)
6/19, different technician from Company A comes and replaces evaporator coil. All is well.
6/30: Notice it’s getting warm again. Company A can’t get someone to me fast enough, recommended Company B. Company B comes out, I explain what Company A did, and he checked 410A levels and sees low. States that it may be low due to then having filled it on a cooler day and it expands/contracts with weather. Tech tops it off, says if it gets warm, call him back.
7/18: notice it’s warm and temp in the house is not hitting target, call Company B. Same tech arrives and notices it’s low. Finds a leak on line from inside until to outside unit. Fixes it. Does check of other areas and says we are good to go. Tops off unit with 410A.
8/1: notice it’s warm again. Check Tstat and says until has not turned off since 10:00am and house is at 82 (set to 76)
Here is the weird part. Temping the unit and the vents, air coming out of the top of the unit is at an almost perfect 20 degree split from the supply. I’m only losing 5-7 degrees from the top of the unit to the vents and all my vents are blowing well. For example, temp in the house got to 78 at about 10:00pm, after running all day. Checked top of unit and air was at 56, checked vents around the house and air was at 62-65 coming out of the vents.
I do hear a hissing coming out of the unit by the TXV (external TXV). Do you think I have another leak or maybe a duct problem, or some other problem?
I feel like I am going to end up having to buy a new system.
Thank you.

2020.03.23 18:03 JaedenStormes Press Releases: Indie Game Alliance Announces “Play Unconventionally” - A Free, 100% Online Gaming Convention

ORLANDO, FL - The Indie Game Alliance (IGA), a service-oriented guild of more than 1,350 independent tabletop game designers and publishers, announced today that it will be hosting Play Unconventionally 2020, a fully online tabletop gaming convention experience, from May 23 - 25, 2020. The convention will be free for all exhibitors and attendees. Signups are open now at playunconventionally.com.
The Virtual Exhibit Hall will feature popular streamers running engaging, entertaining demo plays of exhibitor games in one of the Exhibit Hall streams. Purchases of game and accessories will be made through Play Unconventionally’s dedicated online store to facilitate order consolidation and reduce shipping costs. A portion of all exhibit hall purchases will benefit the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund, to assist those in the gaming community who are struggling.
Play Unconventionally 2020 will also feature events for unpublished designers, including virtual playtesting, a fully online publisher speed dating event, and interactive video panels. The show’s community track features an artists’ alley for linking Etsy, DeviantArt, and other suchBottom shops for handmade and one-off items, a cosplay contest, a diversity lounge, math trades, and a virtual flea market for game swaps.
Play Unconventionally’s community will be hosted primarily through its Discord server located at http://www.playunconventionally.com/discord. This server is open now, and prospective attendees or exhibitors are welcome to join now, familiarize themselves with plans, and ask questions. The Discord has dedicated lobbies for matchmaking for online play through Tabletopia, Tabletop Simulator, Board Game Arena, Vorpal Board, Roll20.net and Astral Tabletop, as well as mobile and PC ports and unstructured play-over-webcam. A print-and-play archive has also been established for those wishing to try out prototype games and offer feedback to the designers.
“In these challenging and uncertain times, it is critical that all of us in the tabletop community come together and support each other. It is our fervent hope that Play Unconventionally will give exhibitors, artists, and attendees alike the opportunity to recapture some of the joy -- and in the case of game publishers, some of the revenue -- of our favorite conventions,” said Matt Holden, executive director of the Indie Game Alliance.

2019.10.19 18:30 youngrichntasteless $20k/month with a dog leash that attaches to your bicycle.

Hey - Pat from StarterStory.com here with another interview.
Today's interview is with Mike Leon of Bike Tow Leash, a brand that makes bike accessories for dogs
Some stats:

Hello! Who are you and what business did you start?

I am Mike Leon, mechanical engineer, an avid bike rider, service dog trainer and inventor of the 1-Running-Dog Bike Tow LeashⓇ for safe bike, trike, scooter, and wheelchair dog-rides.
I am the owner of LEON Engineering, Inc. We design, build and sell the 1-Running-Dog Bike Tow Leash® to dog owners, walkers, trainers, military and law enforcement, search and rescue and those with special needs. Having sold less than 200 BTLs prior, My on-the-side hobby turned into a true business in 2009 with the launch of our first website. We went from shipping hundreds/year to thousands/year. Now, our business allows me to work comfortably from home, making 6 figures, while caring for my wife and enriching the lives of tens of thousands of dogs and their humans.
image

What's your backstory and how did you come up with the idea?

I am a mechanical engineer graduate from Georgia Tech. My wife Betsy, GA Tech EE graduate, and I met her first day at school. We married after graduation. We have two daughters Jessica and Sam. After GA Tech I developed airline products up until when the 9-11 terrorist attacks occurred.
After the 9-11 terrorist attacks, Betsy and the girls, then 5 and 8, met Cindy at Publix getting groceries. She had a black Lab puppy in a light blue cape with her. From that encounter, my family and I volunteered raising service dog puppies for individuals with disabilities as a way of giving back to our community and country. In honor of those lost, we named our first puppy Tribute.
Raising service dog puppies is a wonderful volunteer opportunity, which ultimately provides companion animals to individuals who suffer from seizures, or who have mobility, vision or hearing impairments.
As trainers, we raise, train and socialize puppies until they are ready for graduate school. For socialization, we take the puppies, in a service cape, to work, stores, restaurants, schools, theme parks, etc.to expose them to a variety of situations. This prevents unpleasant surprises after they have been assigned to a client who is depending on them to do their job without being distracted.
At about 6 months of age our first dog Tribute, now a tall long-legged black Labrador, had more energy than I did when we went out walking or running. With all her puppy energy, we needed to make sure Tribute exercised strenuously before we went out to eat. Since bad behavior is often a result of a lack of exercise and dogs in training are supposed to lie down and sleep under the table, not stand and upset dinner I was looking for an answer.
As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention. As a result of Tribute's need for speed, and my more limited energy levels, I got the idea to combine the fun of biking (for me) with the fun of running (for Tribute).
Given my understanding of both physics and dog behavior, and concern for both my safety and the dog's safety, I knew better than to attempt riding Tribute with a regular leash. (Much later I did attempt riding with a regular leash, made it less than a mile, and still have the scars!)
image
As a product development engineer, I was accustomed to doing my homework when attempting something new. First, I checked on-line to determine whether there was a product available which made it safe to ride a bicycle with a dog.

Take us through the process of designing, prototyping, and manufacturing your first product.

So when the raising organizations would not permit dog-biking with the products of the time, I compiled a list of shortcomings those current dog-biking attachments had: These included; bike tipping, pinching, poking or cutting dog or rider, running over your dog, no instant, direct or automatic communication between bike and dog. Ultimately, it had to be safe for both dog and rider.
I envisioned my initial idea with safety in mind and built a prototype in my garage. This was not my first prototype as I had been designing and building items for many years prior. Anyway the first prototype I carved up from old parts in my garage functioned safely but had much room for improvement. It was important to keep early prototypes from prying eyes so we mainly biked in the dark.
Early on it became apparent I wasn’t just making a leash for Tribute. I gave some to my sister Angie for their dogs to use with her kids, dog trainers, and neighbors. All came back with glowing reviews. I used a non-disclosure agreement for protection during this period. In the agreement, the prototype BTLs were to be returned at 6 months for a production model. I must say there was reluctance on the return part! All wound up with production units in the end.
We applied for a utility patent, for protection, then approached manufacturers to make production parts. It is important to analyze the cost of each process involved to control cost while maximizing quality. Something as simple as a 45-degree chamfer versus a radiused corner can eliminate the need for costly special tooling. We started ordering part quantities for 500 leashes. Now the typical order is for 20 times that amount to find the sweet spot between part cost and the issues large inventories bring.

Describe the process of launching the business.

We launched LEON Engineering, Inc. by going to the bank and opening a business checking account. We opened with $20K left over from my post 9-11 severance package earned from 17 years designing and marketing airline products. We finished paying off the house with those funds. Fortunately, Betsy was still working. Her income provided us some financial flexibility. We needed additional capital for business development and patents. I stumbled into product forensics from my dad’s side involvement in a few cases. He suggested that I give product forensics as an expert witness a try. I’m uniquely qualified for this type of work as a mechanical engineer with a Professional Engineer’s license, extensive product development, field failure analysis, and repair experience. As an expert witness, I investigate, solve and testify in litigation cases involving injuries or losses. This type of work pays well but is very demanding mentally and physically. Not for everybody, and are not usually solved as quickly as in 60 minute TV shows. Some are good stories though if you have time for a couple of beers I could share a few. Anyway, those earnings were from cases ranging from chairs, ladders, fire, and flooding to cranes, were not earmarked for our living expenses. Thankfully we had help from Leon Enterprises, my Dad’s Patent Agent firm to keep patent expenses to a minimum. So, forensic earnings covered our early startup costs. These included applying for patents on the Bike Tow Leash and other products, prototype parts, tooling, marketing and paying our accountant. So many months of long hours, sleepless nights and careful spending paid off. We, Betsy and I, own LEON Engineering, Inc. and all the patents out right!
Patents are expensive but necessary. You can have a great idea, concept, etc. but if someone learns of it and builds it before you patent it, you will have done it all for nothing or have a huge legal battle you likely cannot afford. There has to be enough money in a lawsuit to interest good attorneys in your case. The threshold is about $2 million of provable losses.
Here are my intellectual property tips to save you tens of thousands of dollars in start-up costs alone:
I continued to refine the BTL riding with my girls to school with subsequent dogs we raised. It was while being rapidly propelled down the beach after seagulls by Molly our third dog a Golden Retriever, that the name went from Bike Leash to Bike Tow Leash.
Early prototypes had more parts and assembly required. When I showed it to pet product companies, manufacturers and buyers, they felt the customers wouldn’t understand it and the manufacturing costs were too high as well.
We launched our website selling the Bike Tow Leash in 2009 with fewer parts and no customer required assembly. That is when I started paying myself instead of just the accountant and attorney. We are currently just 8 months in with our new Shopify website after having the first custom-built website for 10 years.

Original Site (2009) vs. Current Site (2019)

Since launch, what has worked to attract and retain customers?

Attracting customers we have been fortunate in many areas. Attending trade shows provided an early benefit with complimentary ad placement in Pet Business Magazine. From that ad, our first reseller found us and started selling our Bike Tow Leash on their website. That seemed to legitimize us as there was a steady stream of reselling followers afterward.
My daughter Sam helped by setting up our Bike Tow Leash Facebook page which we try to post regularly. Facebook has turned out to provide more than half of all social media traffic to our website with Instagram a distant second. Our customer demographic appears most comfortable using Facebook. Join Facebook groups that may involve your product's use. We participate in urban mushing and won our two dog category in the Iron Paws Stage Race last year all on Facebook. Our Bike Tow Leash was a great advantage.
Amazon is absolutely necessary. Particularly for their reviews. It is where most internet buyers search first for items. Beware of having too many resellers on these sites. It will make it hard to protect your pricing. Definitely take control of your brand by selling as well. Monitor your customer ratings, comment, and reply to questions. Your product’s Amazon rating is crucial to your success. We are currently Amazon Choice 4.5 stars!
We are currently trying an ad approach on Facebook with a third party service. The jury is still out on this additional spending. Half of your marketing dollars are wasted. The key is to eliminate that half and move on. So keep track of the numbers as best you can.
Companies come out of the woodwork claiming large followings, readership, views, etc. Remember, at this point in history everyone is inundated with ads, can choose to fast forward, flip hundreds of channels, etc. So, it is actually seen is not the same as the following numbers or homes piped into.
Another option is professional and celebrity endorsements. Celebrity endorsements are usually very expensive. I’ve been approached by such and opted out of those 5 figure deals with stars like Cesar Millan. Good things happen when you least expect them sometimes.
I remember reading a pet magazine article about Brandon McMillan, his CBS Lucky Dog show and commenting to Betsy, “I need to meet Brandon”. A couple of months later after the first night of the Global Pet Expo, Betsy, Ray her service dog, and I gave up on the after-show gathering in the main lobby. There were hordes of people, surrounding too few foods and beverage tables to comfortably maneuver her wheelchair and keep Ray from being trampled. It was fate. We decided to leave but since the show floor was closed we took a different path toward the van and wound up in Brandon’s Press gathering. All of a sudden, people were waiting for us with our choice of food and drink. Then up walks Brandon. He looks down at Betsy’s chair with Ray attached with his Bike Tow Leash and says “ I’ve used one of those on my Show”! It hadn’t aired yet so I captured it on our DVR. Wow, what I was hoping to convince him to do had already happened!
We’ve had several dog behaviorists, trainers and bloggers provide reviews and videos. These are great to link in social media posts to help grow your audience through shares. More importantly, as with our happy customers, they recommend the BTL directly to others.
Customer service and satisfaction can never take a back seat in your efforts toward promoting your brand. Always participate if you can in their grand openings etc.
Videos are more important than ever and YouTube leads the way! Here is the best overall usage video on our Bike Tow Leash channel;
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6oU2SuZYkQ
The best way to show off a dynamic product is with usage videos. Some people are much more willing to watch videos with compelling thumbnails than reviews. Everyone is different.
If you are selling to active lifestyle people, don’t force them into activities where they can’t multitask for instance. In our case, we are looking for customers who want to ride a bike, trike, mobility scooter or chair while walking their dog. That is two tasks at once unless they are running errands as well.
image

How are you doing today and what does the future look like?

Americans are currently spending over $70 Billion/yr on their pets. This spending amount increases every year! So today we are profitable and growing. We have a new website with less purchase friction, more product offerings and information for attaching to bikes, etc. making transactions larger and quicker.
We’ve added new attaching options including our new branded collar designed to optimize dog-biking and dog-walking, Quick Mount for attaching either side and rapid height adjustment flexibility. Chain-Stay Clamp for attaching either side of newer aluminum and carbon fiber bikes additionally wheelchairs.
The annual APPA, (American Pet Products Association) pet owners survey indicates each year that the average dog owner has 1.43 dogs. So, we just added our newly patented Dog Coupler for safely attaching a second dog on a single Bike Tow Leash. So now, we can also add “No Dog Left Behind” to our promises.
We are continually tweaking the website adding more tooling fixtures etc. to gain higher efficiencies for cost control and rewarding employee innovation towards those goals. We are looking toward expanding international distribution in particular Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Special needs are currently a small portion of our sales but I see it as another large market. I truly love to help others enjoy their dog's company. It makes my day to hear how we have made a difference. My favorite such story always gives me goosebumps to tell; An 86 year old lady was moved to assisted living the year before and had to give up her beloved dog because she couldn’t walk her. Well, she got a Bike Tow Leash for her mobility scooter and got her dog back after a year! I wish I could have been there for that reunion. Well, no goosebumps this time, tears.

Through starting the business, have you learned anything particularly helpful or advantageous?

Your brain is a muscle that fatigues as you interact during the day. So make your most important decisions and do your more cranial work first thing in the morning. If that doesn’t work, late nights like mine. Learn from your mistakes. Better yet, learn from the mistakes of others.
My most costly mistake to date was agreeing to a TV commercial like “As Seen on TV”. It took up a tremendous amount of time getting the commercial shot and edited properly.
The company was to answer the phone lines while the commercial only aired 150 times. After most of almost a year, and $17,000 spent they only sold 36 BTLs. Lesson learned; our customer demographic is active enough to hit, fast forward, on their remote. That is if they sit till to watch any commercial TV at all!

What platform/tools do you use for your business?

We recently launched a new site using Shopify. Shopify has greatly helped us with managing and shipping all of our orders.
Since launching, our time spent on shipping products has been greatly reduced. Shopify allows us to easily compare shipping prices and create labels in just one click.
We use Shopify apps to allow customers to leave reviews, store locator so customers know where they can find and try out our products as well as a quick announcement bar for promotions.

What have been the most influential books, podcasts, or other resources?

I enjoy podcasts from people in our same pet products and services area. Particularly ones covering lessons learned in advertising social media and managing today’s workforce.
I enjoyed Leslie Johnson’s book “Bike With Your Dog” How to Stay Safe and Have Fun. I particularly like our prominence in chapter 3 and having our Bike Tow Leash displayed on both the front and back covers!

Advice for other entrepreneurs who want to get started or are just starting out?

Keep your overhead low as you start out to prevent outpacing your sales. I still work from home which allows me to deduct a portion of my home off my taxes and care for my ailing wife. It also saves me a lot of time commuting and money on caregivers. Having caregivers for her around 24-7 is what we are happy to avoid.
Take advantage of tax credits such as manufactured in the USA, solar power and charitable causes. It is also beneficial to show customers you care about them, our planet and their animals in our case. Donate as you can afford toward their causes. In our case to animal adoptions.
I’ve learned, for us, the power of donation is greater than expensive ads and commercials. We give Bike Tow Leashes, even some on bikes, to adoption facilities. I like marketing this way as it is a win-win for everyone involved. Especially the dogs!
We are currently shipping out donations for Get Your Licks on Route 66 adoption tour. They have helped place over 13,000 animals in the last 10 years! The Tour starts in Los Angeles and has 13 stops along the way. This is our 5th year to be a spinning wheel sponsor.
We are trying something new this year by contacting the shelters ahead to ask if they would use a donated Bike Tow Leash to walk more dogs further. In return, they send back a donation letter and agree to hand out our brochures with each adoption. The bonus we hope for is for their volunteers to demonstrate the Bike Tow Leash during the adoption events. So far, we have 4 of the 13 stops agreeing to our plan! I can’t wait to see how the tour turns out next month.
Provide exceptional personal service to ensure each customer becomes an advocate is by far the best way to grow.
There is no better marketing tool than satisfied customers. With our Bike Tow Leash attached, our customers are often asked about it. We call it instant celebrity status as people want to stop them on the street. We send 4 brochures with each order just for that purpose.
I try to ask each customer how they first learned of the Bike Tow Leash and “Googled it” is usually first, trainer, neighbor, YouTube and family member, on Lucky Dog TV Show then magazine ad in about that order. Mind you I talk to less than 1% of our customers so that may be a bit skewed toward people needing or looking for extra assistance.
Don’t commit to huge volumes of inventory early as you may need the capital elsewhere and/or need to make changes to the product. Watch inventory volumes and lead times carefully. A single part will prevent shipping products. Too many of a part can become expensive scrap.
Take help when offered.
Especially in areas outside your core capabilities like accounting and legal. Find ways to offload or delegate the tasks that keep you from working on your growth goals. Don’t offload tasks that require your core knowledge until you have that knowledge base in place. Find ways to assist your customers in their purchasing process to know they are ordering the correct item and completing the transaction with as little “purchase friction” as possible.
Believe in your product, if you don’t, no one else will.
Commit yourself to your success and it will rub off on your employees and customers. Have your “elevator speech” ready and carry a brochure or business card with you as you never know when you will find your next partner, celebrity or huge customer.

Are you looking to hire for certain positions right now?

I am always looking for more help as the to-do list is longer than our days. We have a somewhat seasonal product that benefits from part-time student interns particularly in the summer. I find the students see the latest social media trends to market and operate on websites etc. without the hesitation I tend to have. The downside is continually training and looking for the next superstar; We need; Marketing, engineering, manufacturing, web design, business and finance interns, etc.. Full and part-time paid positions are available.

Where can we go to learn more?

Another option is professional and celebrity endorsements. Celebrity endorsements are usually very expensive. I’ve been approached by such and opted out of those 5 figure deals with stars like Cesar Millan. Good things happen when you least expect them sometimes.
I remember reading a pet magazine article about Brandon McMillan, his CBS Lucky Dog show and commenting to Betsy, “I need to meet Brandon”. A couple of months later after the first night of the Global Pet Expo, Betsy, Ray her service dog, and I gave up on the after-show gathering in the main lobby. There were hordes of people, surrounding too few foods and beverage tables to comfortably maneuver her wheelchair and keep Ray from being trampled. It was fate. We decided to leave but since the show floor was closed we took a different path toward the van and wound up in Brandon’s Press gathering. All of a sudden, people were waiting for us with our choice of food and drink. Then up walks Brandon. He looks down at Betsy’s chair with Ray attached with his Bike Tow Leash and says “ I’ve used one of those on my Show”! It hadn’t aired yet so I captured it on our DVR. Wow, what I was hoping to convince him to do had already happened!
We’ve had several dog behaviorists, trainers and bloggers provide reviews and videos. These are great to link in social media posts to help grow your audience through shares. More importantly, as with our happy customers, they recommend the BTL directly to others.
Customer service and satisfaction can never take a back seat in your efforts toward promoting your brand. Always participate if you can in their grand openings etc.
Videos are more important than ever and YouTube leads the way! Here is the best overall usage video on our Bike Tow Leash channel;
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6oU2SuZYkQ
The best way to show off a dynamic product is with usage videos. Some people are much more willing to watch videos with compelling thumbnails than reviews. Everyone is different.
If you are selling to active lifestyle people, don’t force them into activities where they can’t multitask for instance. In our case, we are looking for customers who want to ride a bike, trike, mobility scooter or chair while walking their dog. That is two tasks at once unless they are running errands as well.
image

How are you doing today and what does the future look like?

Americans are currently spending over $70 Billion/yr on their pets. This spending amount increases every year! So today we are profitable and growing. We have a new website with less purchase friction, more product offerings and information for attaching to bikes, etc. making transactions larger and quicker.
We’ve added new attaching options including our new branded collar designed to optimize dog-biking and dog-walking, Quick Mount for attaching either side and rapid height adjustment flexibility. Chain-Stay Clamp for attaching either side of newer aluminum and carbon fiber bikes additionally wheelchairs.
The annual APPA, (American Pet Products Association) pet owners survey indicates each year that the average dog owner has 1.43 dogs. So, we just added our newly patented Dog Coupler for safely attaching a second dog on a single Bike Tow Leash. So now, we can also add “No Dog Left Behind” to our promises.
We are continually tweaking the website adding more tooling fixtures etc. to gain higher efficiencies for cost control and rewarding employee innovation towards those goals. We are looking toward expanding international distribution in particular Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Special needs are currently a small portion of our sales but I see it as another large market. I truly love to help others enjoy their dog's company. It makes my day to hear how we have made a difference. My favorite such story always gives me goosebumps to tell; An 86 year old lady was moved to assisted living the year before and had to give up her beloved dog because she couldn’t walk her. Well, she got a Bike Tow Leash for her mobility scooter and got her dog back after a year! I wish I could have been there for that reunion. Well, no goosebumps this time, tears.

Through starting the business, have you learned anything particularly helpful or advantageous?

Your brain is a muscle that fatigues as you interact during the day. So make your most important decisions and do your more cranial work first thing in the morning. If that doesn’t work, late nights like mine. Learn from your mistakes. Better yet, learn from the mistakes of others.
My most costly mistake to date was agreeing to a TV commercial like “As Seen on TV”. It took up a tremendous amount of time getting the commercial shot and edited properly.
The company was to answer the phone lines while the commercial only aired 150 times. After most of almost a year, and $17,000 spent they only sold 36 BTLs. Lesson learned; our customer demographic is active enough to hit, fast forward, on their remote. That is if they sit till to watch any commercial TV at all!

What platform/tools do you use for your business?

We recently launched a new site using Shopify. Shopify has greatly helped us with managing and shipping all of our orders.
Since launching, our time spent on shipping products has been greatly reduced. Shopify allows us to easily compare shipping prices and create labels in just one click.
We use Shopify apps to allow customers to leave reviews, store locator so customers know where they can find and try out our products as well as a quick announcement bar for promotions.

What have been the most influential books, podcasts, or other resources?

I enjoy podcasts from people in our same pet products and services area. Particularly ones covering lessons learned in advertising social media and managing today’s workforce.
I enjoyed Leslie Johnson’s book “Bike With Your Dog” How to Stay Safe and Have Fun. I particularly like our prominence in chapter 3 and having our Bike Tow Leash displayed on both the front and back covers!

Advice for other entrepreneurs who want to get started or are just starting out?

Keep your overhead low as you start out to prevent outpacing your sales. I still work from home which allows me to deduct a portion of my home off my taxes and care for my ailing wife. It also saves me a lot of time commuting and money on caregivers. Having caregivers for her around 24-7 is what we are happy to avoid.
Take advantage of tax credits such as manufactured in the USA, solar power and charitable causes. It is also beneficial to show customers you care about them, our planet and their animals in our case. Donate as you can afford toward their causes. In our case to animal adoptions.
I’ve learned, for us, the power of donation is greater than expensive ads and commercials. We give Bike Tow Leashes, even some on bikes, to adoption facilities. I like marketing this way as it is a win-win for everyone involved. Especially the dogs!
We are currently shipping out donations for Get Your Licks on Route 66 adoption tour. They have helped place over 13,000 animals in the last 10 years! The Tour starts in Los Angeles and has 13 stops along the way. This is our 5th year to be a spinning wheel sponsor.
We are trying something new this year by contacting the shelters ahead to ask if they would use a donated Bike Tow Leash to walk more dogs further. In return, they send back a donation letter and agree to hand out our brochures with each adoption. The bonus we hope for is for their volunteers to demonstrate the Bike Tow Leash during the adoption events. So far, we have 4 of the 13 stops agreeing to our plan! I can’t wait to see how the tour turns out next month.
Provide exceptional personal service to ensure each customer becomes an advocate is by far the best way to grow.
There is no better marketing tool than satisfied customers. With our Bike Tow Leash attached, our customers are often asked about it. We call it instant celebrity status as people want to stop them on the street. We send 4 brochures with each order just for that purpose.
I try to ask each customer how they first learned of the Bike Tow Leash and “Googled it” is usually first, trainer, neighbor, YouTube and family member, on Lucky Dog TV Show then magazine ad in about that order. Mind you I talk to less than 1% of our customers so that may be a bit skewed toward people needing or looking for extra assistance.
Don’t commit to huge volumes of inventory early as you may need the capital elsewhere and/or need to make changes to the product. Watch inventory volumes and lead times carefully. A single part will prevent shipping products. Too many of a part can become expensive scrap.
Take help when offered.
Especially in areas outside your core capabilities like accounting and legal. Find ways to offload or delegate the tasks that keep you from working on your growth goals. Don’t offload tasks that require your core knowledge until you have that knowledge base in place. Find ways to assist your customers in their purchasing process to know they are ordering the correct item and completing the transaction with as little “purchase friction” as possible.
Believe in your product, if you don’t, no one else will.
Commit yourself to your success and it will rub off on your employees and customers. Have your “elevator speech” ready and carry a brochure or business card with you as you never know when you will find your next partner, celebrity or huge customer.

Are you looking to hire for certain positions right now?

I am always looking for more help as the to-do list is longer than our days. We have a somewhat seasonal product that benefits from part-time student interns particularly in the summer. I find the students see the latest social media trends to market and operate on websites etc. without the hesitation I tend to have. The downside is continually training and looking for the next superstar; We need; Marketing, engineering, manufacturing, web design, business and finance interns, etc.. Full and part-time paid positions are available.

Where can we go to learn more?

2019.10.19 18:00 youngrichntasteless $20k/month with a dog leash that attaches to your bicycle.

Hey - Pat from StarterStory.com here with another interview.
Today's interview is with Mike Leon of Bike Tow Leash, a brand that makes bike accessories for dogs
Some stats:

Hello! Who are you and what business did you start?

I am Mike Leon, mechanical engineer, an avid bike rider, service dog trainer and inventor of the 1-Running-Dog Bike Tow LeashⓇ for safe bike, trike, scooter, and wheelchair dog-rides.
I am the owner of LEON Engineering, Inc. We design, build and sell the 1-Running-Dog Bike Tow Leash® to dog owners, walkers, trainers, military and law enforcement, search and rescue and those with special needs. Having sold less than 200 BTLs prior, My on-the-side hobby turned into a true business in 2009 with the launch of our first website. We went from shipping hundreds/year to thousands/year. Now, our business allows me to work comfortably from home, making 6 figures, while caring for my wife and enriching the lives of tens of thousands of dogs and their humans.
image

What's your backstory and how did you come up with the idea?

I am a mechanical engineer graduate from Georgia Tech. My wife Betsy, GA Tech EE graduate, and I met her first day at school. We married after graduation. We have two daughters Jessica and Sam. After GA Tech I developed airline products up until when the 9-11 terrorist attacks occurred.
After the 9-11 terrorist attacks, Betsy and the girls, then 5 and 8, met Cindy at Publix getting groceries. She had a black Lab puppy in a light blue cape with her. From that encounter, my family and I volunteered raising service dog puppies for individuals with disabilities as a way of giving back to our community and country. In honor of those lost, we named our first puppy Tribute.
Raising service dog puppies is a wonderful volunteer opportunity, which ultimately provides companion animals to individuals who suffer from seizures, or who have mobility, vision or hearing impairments.
As trainers, we raise, train and socialize puppies until they are ready for graduate school. For socialization, we take the puppies, in a service cape, to work, stores, restaurants, schools, theme parks, etc.to expose them to a variety of situations. This prevents unpleasant surprises after they have been assigned to a client who is depending on them to do their job without being distracted.
At about 6 months of age our first dog Tribute, now a tall long-legged black Labrador, had more energy than I did when we went out walking or running. With all her puppy energy, we needed to make sure Tribute exercised strenuously before we went out to eat. Since bad behavior is often a result of a lack of exercise and dogs in training are supposed to lie down and sleep under the table, not stand and upset dinner I was looking for an answer.
As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention. As a result of Tribute's need for speed, and my more limited energy levels, I got the idea to combine the fun of biking (for me) with the fun of running (for Tribute).
Given my understanding of both physics and dog behavior, and concern for both my safety and the dog's safety, I knew better than to attempt riding Tribute with a regular leash. (Much later I did attempt riding with a regular leash, made it less than a mile, and still have the scars!)
image
As a product development engineer, I was accustomed to doing my homework when attempting something new. First, I checked on-line to determine whether there was a product available which made it safe to ride a bicycle with a dog.

Take us through the process of designing, prototyping, and manufacturing your first product.

So when the raising organizations would not permit dog-biking with the products of the time, I compiled a list of shortcomings those current dog-biking attachments had: These included; bike tipping, pinching, poking or cutting dog or rider, running over your dog, no instant, direct or automatic communication between bike and dog. Ultimately, it had to be safe for both dog and rider.
I envisioned my initial idea with safety in mind and built a prototype in my garage. This was not my first prototype as I had been designing and building items for many years prior. Anyway the first prototype I carved up from old parts in my garage functioned safely but had much room for improvement. It was important to keep early prototypes from prying eyes so we mainly biked in the dark.
Early on it became apparent I wasn’t just making a leash for Tribute. I gave some to my sister Angie for their dogs to use with her kids, dog trainers, and neighbors. All came back with glowing reviews. I used a non-disclosure agreement for protection during this period. In the agreement, the prototype BTLs were to be returned at 6 months for a production model. I must say there was reluctance on the return part! All wound up with production units in the end.
We applied for a utility patent, for protection, then approached manufacturers to make production parts. It is important to analyze the cost of each process involved to control cost while maximizing quality. Something as simple as a 45-degree chamfer versus a radiused corner can eliminate the need for costly special tooling. We started ordering part quantities for 500 leashes. Now the typical order is for 20 times that amount to find the sweet spot between part cost and the issues large inventories bring.

Describe the process of launching the business.

We launched LEON Engineering, Inc. by going to the bank and opening a business checking account. We opened with $20K left over from my post 9-11 severance package earned from 17 years designing and marketing airline products. We finished paying off the house with those funds. Fortunately, Betsy was still working. Her income provided us some financial flexibility. We needed additional capital for business development and patents. I stumbled into product forensics from my dad’s side involvement in a few cases. He suggested that I give product forensics as an expert witness a try. I’m uniquely qualified for this type of work as a mechanical engineer with a Professional Engineer’s license, extensive product development, field failure analysis, and repair experience. As an expert witness, I investigate, solve and testify in litigation cases involving injuries or losses. This type of work pays well but is very demanding mentally and physically. Not for everybody, and are not usually solved as quickly as in 60 minute TV shows. Some are good stories though if you have time for a couple of beers I could share a few. Anyway, those earnings were from cases ranging from chairs, ladders, fire, and flooding to cranes, were not earmarked for our living expenses. Thankfully we had help from Leon Enterprises, my Dad’s Patent Agent firm to keep patent expenses to a minimum. So, forensic earnings covered our early startup costs. These included applying for patents on the Bike Tow Leash and other products, prototype parts, tooling, marketing and paying our accountant. So many months of long hours, sleepless nights and careful spending paid off. We, Betsy and I, own LEON Engineering, Inc. and all the patents out right!
Patents are expensive but necessary. You can have a great idea, concept, etc. but if someone learns of it and builds it before you patent it, you will have done it all for nothing or have a huge legal battle you likely cannot afford. There has to be enough money in a lawsuit to interest good attorneys in your case. The threshold is about $2 million of provable losses.
Here are my intellectual property tips to save you tens of thousands of dollars in start-up costs alone:
I continued to refine the BTL riding with my girls to school with subsequent dogs we raised. It was while being rapidly propelled down the beach after seagulls by Molly our third dog a Golden Retriever, that the name went from Bike Leash to Bike Tow Leash.
Early prototypes had more parts and assembly required. When I showed it to pet product companies, manufacturers and buyers, they felt the customers wouldn’t understand it and the manufacturing costs were too high as well.
We launched our website selling the Bike Tow Leash in 2009 with fewer parts and no customer required assembly. That is when I started paying myself instead of just the accountant and attorney. We are currently just 8 months in with our new Shopify website after having the first custom-built website for 10 years.

Original Site (2009) vs. Current Site (2019)

Since launch, what has worked to attract and retain customers?

Attracting customers we have been fortunate in many areas. Attending trade shows provided an early benefit with complimentary ad placement in Pet Business Magazine. From that ad, our first reseller found us and started selling our Bike Tow Leash on their website. That seemed to legitimize us as there was a steady stream of reselling followers afterward.
My daughter Sam helped by setting up our Bike Tow Leash Facebook page which we try to post regularly. Facebook has turned out to provide more than half of all social media traffic to our website with Instagram a distant second. Our customer demographic appears most comfortable using Facebook. Join Facebook groups that may involve your product's use. We participate in urban mushing and won our two dog category in the Iron Paws Stage Race last year all on Facebook. Our Bike Tow Leash was a great advantage.
Amazon is absolutely necessary. Particularly for their reviews. It is where most internet buyers search first for items. Beware of having too many resellers on these sites. It will make it hard to protect your pricing. Definitely take control of your brand by selling as well. Monitor your customer ratings, comment, and reply to questions. Your product’s Amazon rating is crucial to your success. We are currently Amazon Choice 4.5 stars!
We are currently trying an ad approach on Facebook with a third party service. The jury is still out on this additional spending. Half of your marketing dollars are wasted. The key is to eliminate that half and move on. So keep track of the numbers as best you can.
Companies come out of the woodwork claiming large followings, readership, views, etc. Remember, at this point in history everyone is inundated with ads, can choose to fast forward, flip hundreds of channels, etc. So, it is actually seen is not the same as the following numbers or homes piped into.
Another option is professional and celebrity endorsements. Celebrity endorsements are usually very expensive. I’ve been approached by such and opted out of those 5 figure deals with stars like Cesar Millan. Good things happen when you least expect them sometimes.

2019.08.13 20:58 ThatPackerFan NFL100: 100 Days, 100 Years (Day 78)

"This one's for John"-Pat Bowlen
To celebrate 100 days until the 100th season, it is time to continue counting down to the historic centennial season of the National Football League.
Over the 100 days leading up to kickoff, we’ll look at each season since the very beginning, and how the league has evolved to today’s game.
Season 78: 1997 NFL (National Football League)
Duration: August 31, 1997-January 25, 1998
Teams: 30
1997 NFL Draft: 240 selections (7 rounds), held in New York City, NY.
1997 First Draft Pick: Orlando Pace, Offensive Tackle from Ohio State University (St. Louis Rams)
1997 AP Most Valuable Player: Brett Favre, Quarterback (Green Bay Packers) / Barry Sanders, Running Back (Detroit Lions)
Super Bowl XXXII: Denver Broncos (AFC) defeated Green Bay Packers (NFC) 31-24 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA.
This season featured the following rule changes:
-When a team fakes a punt and throws the ball downfield, pass interference will not be called on the two outside defenders who are actually trying to block a coverage man from getting downfield and might not even know the ball has been thrown.
-In order to reduce taunting and excessive celebrations, no player may remove his helmet while on the playing field except during timeouts, between quarters, and in the case of an injury. Violating the rule results in a 15-yard penalty. This is known as the "Emmit Smith rule" after the Dallas Cowboys' running back's habit of taking his helmet off every time he scored a touchdown.
During the off-season, the Houston Oilers relocated to Nashville, TN and were renamed the "Tennessee Oilers". They played their games in Memphis, TN until their new stadium was completed in Nashville.
Starting in 1990, the league added 2 additional playoff teams to round out the playoff field to 12 teams (6 from each conference). From 1990 to the end of the 2001 season, there were 3 division winners per conference as well as 3 wild cards. The top 2 division winners would have a bye week to the divisional round, while the others played on wild card weekend. Since 1990, the league altered the rules of division opponents facing off in the divisional round of the playoffs, there was ban on that until 1990, but now division opponents can meet any weekend of the post-season (except the Super Bowl). The highest seeds remaining after the divisional round would host the conference title games.
The playoff qualifiers were:
AFC Seed NFC
Kansas City Chiefs (13-3) [West] #1 San Francisco 49ers (13-3) [West]
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5) [Central] #2 Green Bay Packers (13-3) [Central]
New England Patriots (10-6) [East] #3 New York Giants (10-5-1) [East]
Denver Broncos (12-4) [Wild Card] #4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-6) [Wild Card]
Jacksonville Jaguars (11-5) [Wild Card] #5 Detroit Lions (9-7) [Wild Card]
Miami Dolphins (9-7) [Wild Card] #6 Minnesota Vikings (9-7) [Wild Card]
Wild Card Playoffs
Minnesota Vikings defeated New York Giants 23-22 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
Denver Broncos defeated Jacksonville Jaguars 42-17 at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO.
New England Patriots defeated Miami Dolphins 17-3 at Foxboro Stadium in Foxborough, MA.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated Detroit Lions 20-10 at Houlihan's Stadium in Tampa, FL.
Divisional Playoffs
Pittsburgh Steelers defeated New England Patriots 7-6 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, PA.
San Francisco 49ers defeated Minnesota Vikings 38-22 at 3Com Park in San Francisco, CA.
Green Bay Packers defeated Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-7 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI.
Denver Broncos defeated Kansas City Chiefs 14-10 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO.

Super Bowl XXXII
The Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers competed in Super Bowl XXXII at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. The attendance was 68,912 while NBC held the broadcast duties. The defending champion Packers were favored to repeat by 11 points.
Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman returned the opening kickoff 19 yards to the Green Bay 24-yard line. On the third play of the drive, quarterback Brett Favre kept the offense on the field by completing a 13-yard pass to Freeman on 3rd down and 9. Then running back Dorsey Levens rushed the ball on three consecutive plays, gaining 27 yards to advance to the Denver 35-yard line. Favre finished the drive with two completions to Freeman: the first one for 13 yards, and the second one a 22-yard touchdown pass to give the Packers a 7–0 lead (the Packers were the third team to take the opening kickoff down the field and score a touchdown on that drive; the other two were the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VIII and the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIX).
The Broncos responded with a touchdown of their own. Denver running back Vaughn Hebron returned the ensuing kickoff 32 yards to their own 42-yard line. Denver then drove to the Green Bay 46-yard line. On third down, a holding penalty on Packers defensive back Doug Evans nullified quarterback John Elway's incompletion and gave the Broncos a first down. On the next play, running back Terrell Davis ran the ball 27 yards to the 14-yard line. Then after a 2-yard run by Davis, Elway scrambled 10 yards to gain a first down at the 2-yard line. Two plays later, Davis capped off the 10-play, 58-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run to tie the game (this is to date the only Super Bowl in which both teams scored TDs on their opening drives).
On the second play of the Packers' next possession, Denver defensive back Tyrone Braxton intercepted a pass from Favre at Green Bay's 45-yard line. Aided by five runs by Davis for 29 yards, the Broncos marched 45 yards to score on Elway's 1-yard touchdown run on the first play of the 2nd quarter, taking a 14–7 lead.
Elway's touchdown play involved a fake handoff to Davis, who was previously taken out of the game during the drive because the onset of a migraine headache after being inadvertently tripped by LeRoy Butler had severely impaired his vision. But head coach Mike Shanahan decided to send him into the game for the 3rd-down play, believing that the Packers would not be fooled by a fake handoff without Davis on the field. Davis later said his vision was so impaired that he was afraid Elway would call an audible at the line and try to hand him the ball. Despite his blurred vision, Davis perfectly executed the play, drawing the Green Bay defense into the middle of the line as Elway rushed to the right and into the end zone completely untouched. By the second half, Davis had taken migraine medication, and his vision had returned to normal, allowing him to play the rest of the game.
On the Packers' ensuing possession, Broncos safety Steve Atwater forced a fumble while sacking Favre, and defensive end Neil Smith recovered the ball on the Packers 33-yard line. Although the Broncos were unable to get a first down, kicker Jason Elam made a 51-yard field goal, the second longest in Super Bowl history, to increase Denver's lead to 17–7. Both teams went three-and-out on their next possessions, and Denver punter Tom Rouen's 47-yard kick planted Green Bay at their own 5-yard line with 7:38 left in the quarter. But Green Bay stormed down the field on their ensuing drive, marching 95 yards in 17 plays and scoring with Favre's 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mark Chmura with just 12 seconds left in the half. Thus at halftime, the Broncos held onto a slim 17–14 lead.
Green Bay kicked to Denver to start the second half. On the first play after the kickoff, Packer defensive back Tyrone Williams forced and recovered a fumble from Davis. Green Bay took possession with good field position at the Broncos 26-yard line to begin the second half. But Denver's defense forced a three-and-out. However, on the ensuing field goal attempt, Denver's special teams was called for an offsides penalty, giving the Packers a second 1st and 10 at the Broncos 15-yard line, but the broncos defense forced a second three-and-out in back to back possessions to start the second half, the drive stalled at the 9-yard line, forcing the Packers to settle for a 27-yard Ryan Longwell field goal, tying the game at 17–17.
Green Bay kicked off once again and Denver's offense stalled once more, resulting in a punt, giving the Packers possession with good field position again near their 40-yard line. But once again, Denver's defense forced another three-and-out. Forcing Green Bay's offense to punt for a third straight three-and-out to begin the second half. However, again on the ensuing punt, the Broncos special teams were called for an offsides penalty, giving Green Bay a fresh set of downs near midfield. Denver's defense then forced another punt with a fourth three-and-out in a row, marking four three-and-out possessions in a row for the Broncos Defense to start the second half.
Green Bay punter Craig Hentrich's 51-yard kick pinned the Broncos back at their own 8-yard line. But the Packers' defense could not stop Denver as they marched on a 13-play, 92-yard drive to regain the lead. Aided by a 36-yard reception by receiver Ed McCaffrey, the Broncos advanced to the Green Bay 12-yard line. On 3rd down and six from the 12-yard line, Elway scrambled for an 8-yard run and dove for the first down, a play in which he was hit so hard by Packers defenders Butler and Mike Prior that he spun sideways through the air. This run was later referred to as "The Helicopter," and what many consider as Elway's career-defining moment and the defining moment of Super Bowl XXXII. Two plays later, Davis scored on another 1-yard touchdown run, giving the Broncos the lead, 24–17.
On the ensuing kickoff, Denver's special teams player Detron Smith ran full speed into the wedge of the Green Bay blockers, forcing Freeman outside, to his left. Freeman was hit as he held the ball exposed running sideways and fumbled, then Denver defensive back Tim McKyer recovered the ball at the Packers 22-yard line. Immediately, the Broncos tried to capitalize on the turnover by trying to throw for a touchdown, a pass intended for Rod Smith as he ran a post pattern following a fake handoff and a roll out by Elway, but Packers safety Eugene Robinson intercepted Elway's pass in the end zone and returned it to the 15-yard line.
After the interception, the Packers marched 85 yards on four straight pass completions, three of them receptions by Freeman, to tie the game once again 1:28 into the 4th quarter with Freeman's 13-yard touchdown catch. On the scoring play, Freeman and Robert Brooks ran a "criss-cross" pattern, with Freeman on the inside running towards the sidelines. Denver defensive back Darrien Gordon hesitated as to which receiver to cover, and Favre hit Freeman for the score. Tying the game at 24-24.
After the ensuing kick-off, the Packers forced Denver's offense to Punt. With a short punt of only 33 yards, the Packers then took possession with good field position having 1st-and-10 at their own 48 yard line. The Packers then drove to Denver's 39 yard line on offense with the game tied at 24. Having the ball on the Broncos 39 yard line, on 3rd and 8 Favre dropped back to pass and Denver's defense blitzed, leaving Robert Brooks in one-on-one coverage deep. Farve attempted the pass to a seemingly wide open Brooks at Denver's 16-yard line but Broncos Safety Steve Atwater closed in and knocked the pass away at the last second, leaving the Packers just outside of field-goal range and forcing another punt. The Packers' defense was able to stop Denver's offense on the ensuing possession again. Giving Green Bay a chance to make a long game winning drive with 5:25 remaining in the game and First-and-10 starting at their own 10-yard line, needing a long drive but having 3 time league MVP Brett Farve at the helm. With the game in the balance, the Bronco defense forced a fifth critical three-and-out of the second half. Packers kicker Hentrich then punted the ball 39 yards to the Packers 49-yard line. Thus now shifting the balance to Denver with their chance to end the game on a potentially game winning drive with only 3:27 left in the game. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Packers linebacker Darius Holland committed a 15-yard facemask penalty while tackling Davis on a 2-yard run, moving the ball to the 32-yard line. Two plays later, Elway completed a 23-yard pass to fullback Howard Griffith, aided by a powerful block by Ed McCaffrey. A holding penalty pushed the Broncos back to the 18-yard line, but then Davis rushed 17 yards to the 1-yard line, and the Broncos called a timeout. This left the Broncos facing 2nd and goal with 1:47 left on the clock. Green Bay had two timeouts remaining.
Packers coach Mike Holmgren told his team to let the Broncos score to maximize the time the Packers would have on the clock for a potential game-tying drive. He admitted later that he had thought that it was 1st and goal rather than 2nd and goal, crucial to clock management decision making on the play. Davis then scored his third rushing touchdown on 2nd and goal, leaving 1:45 on the clock. The Broncos now had a one-touchdown lead, at 31–24.
The Packers attempted one final drive to try to tie the game before the end of regulation and send the contest into overtime. Shanahan famously instructed his defensive coordinators to keep playing the same blitzing defense as Green Bay attempted to drive downfield in the final two minutes of the game, rather than playing prevent defense. Freeman returned the Broncos' kickoff 22 yards to the 30-yard line. On the very first play of the drive, the Packers immediately advanced to the Broncos 48-yard line with a 22 yard screen pass, leaving 1:30 still remaining in the game with 2 time-outs remaining. But following the first pass, rather than use one of their timeouts, the Packers hurried to the line of scrimmage and ran a second consecutive screen pass, which was stopped for no-gain but cost the Packers 19 seconds, leaving 1:11 left in the game and also forced the Packers to take one of their two time-outs.
On the next play Favre completed another pass to Levens. Levens picked up 13 more yards and he was able to run out of bounds, stopping the clock with 1:04 left in the game with Packers having possession of the ball 1st-and-10 at the Broncos 35 yard line with one time-out remaining. The Broncos defense would stop the Packers on the next four downs. On the first down play, Favre completed a 4-yard pass to Levens, but he was stopped in bounds. The Packers hurried to the line but 20 second ran off before Favre could attempt a second pass. On second down, Favre attempted a pass downfield that hit the receiver in both hands and the chest at the Broncos 15 but Antonio Freeman could not handle the ball. The incomplete pass stopped the clock, but left the packers with a 3rd-and-six and now only :37 seconds remaining. On 3rd down, Favre intended the pass for receiver Robert Brooks covered by Denver's Randy Hilliard, but both were blasted by Atwater's seismic hit. All three players were knocked out of the game, forcing an incomplete pass. Due to the injuries suffered by both teams and because of NFL rules regarding to injuries to players in the final two minutes of the game, both teams were charged a timeout. Leaving the Packers with no time-outs remaining and in 4th down and 6 and the clock stopped at :32 seconds remaining with the ball at the Broncos' 31-yard line. On 4th down, Denver linebacker John Mobley broke up a pass intended for Chmura, enabling the Broncos to take the ball back and run out the clock for the victory. During the post-game victory celebration, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen held the Vince Lombardi Trophy in the air and said, "This one's for John," referring to the fact that Elway's long quest for a Super Bowl victory was finally complete.
It was a long-awaited victory for the Denver Broncos, having appeared in 4 previous Super Bowls and losing them all in convincing fashion, the Denver Broncos finally won a Super Bowl title. It was the first of 3 so far, as the Broncos won the following year in Super Bowl XXXIII, and again won Super Bowl 50. The win for the Broncos also snapped a 13-game streak in Super Bowls where the NFC representative was victorious, turning the tide for the AFC, who won 14 of the next 22 Super Bowls from XXXII to LIII. The Green Bay Packers would not return to the Super Bowl again until Super Bowl XLV where they would defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

2019.06.27 13:54 assessment_bot [ Fatal(2) ] [ 06/12/2019 ] Cessna 182, Maitland/ FL

On June 12, 2019, about 1100 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 182E, N3051Y, was substantially damaged during a forced landing near Maitland, Florida. The private pilot and passenger were fatally injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the flight destined for Massey Ranch Airpark (X50), New Smyrna, Florida. The airplane was owned and operated by Golden Corner Flying Club, under the provisions of Title14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The personal flight originated from Executive Airport (ORL), Orlando, Florida, about 1055.
Earlier during day of the accident, the pilot and passenger flew the airplane from Oconee County Regional Airport (CEU), Clemson, South Carolina, to ORL. A fuel receipt revealed that the pilot purchased 21.1 gallons of fuel prior to departing CEU. The flight plan that was filed indicated that the airplane departed CEU with 4 hours of fuel on board. According to radar data obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the flight from CEU to ORL took about 3.10 hours. The pilot did not purchase fuel at ORL before departing for X50.
According to preliminary air traffic control radio communication information provided by the FAA, the pilot declared an emergency at 1059 to Central Florida Terminal Radar Approach Control and stated that the airplane was not getting fuel out of the right tank. The pilot asked for the closest airport to land and the controller told him that ORL was the closest airport. The controller cleared him to land and advised the pilot he was cleared to make a left or right turn back to the airport and to switch radio frequency back to the tower controller at ORL. The pilot also reported to the tower controller that the airplane was not getting fuel out of the right tank. The controller cleared him to land on runway 13, but the pilot did not respond, and no further communications were received from the accident airplane.
A witness stated that he was in a boat on the northeast side of Lake Maitland when he heard and saw an airplane flying overhead. The engine was sputtering "like it was running out of gas." He watched the airplane fly over the lake to the north, make a 180 turn back to the lake, and thought the pilot was trying to make a water landing. The witness was in the path of the airplane, so he started the boat motor and drove perpendicular to the airplane's path to stay out of the way. The witness further stated it looked like the airplane may have hit some treetops at the edge of the water because the airplane drastically nosed over and went straight into the water and hit "very hard." He immediately went over to the airplane, which was still on top of the water; however, it quickly sank.
The airplane was located about 5 miles north of ORL in Lake Maitland, at a depth of 20 ft. Two gallons of fuel was removed from each wing tank and the single auxiliary tank. The left wing remained attached to the airframe. The flap and aileron were still attached to the wing. The fuel tank was intact and not breached. The fueling cap was attached and secured to the fuel tank. The fuselage was intact and not damaged. The rudder, elevator and vertical stabilizer were attached and not damaged. The right wing remained attached to the airframe. The flap and aileron were still attached to the wing. The fuel tank was intact and not breached. The fueling cap was attached and secured to the fuel tank. The main landing gear was attached and not damaged. Both doors were attached and not damaged.
The instrument panel was intact; however, the panel was separated from its mounts. The throttle, mixture, and propeller controls were all in the most forward position. The fuel selector valve was in the right tank position. The auxiliary fuel pump switch was in the off position. The lap belts and shoulder harnesses remained attached. The propeller was attached to the engine; one blade was bent forward, the second blade tip was bent, and the third blade was straight. The bottom engine cowl was crushed consistent with impact damage. The muffler and airbox were crushed. The top engine cowling was not damaged. The engine remained attached to the engine mounts and was not damaged. Flight control continuity was established to all flight controls by moving the control wheel and rudder pedals to verify movement.
The airplane was recovered to a salvage facility and secured to a trailer in preparation for an engine run. The magnetos were dried out and the carburetor and spark plugs were cleaned of water. The aviation fuel that was removed from the airplane was separated from the water and used to start the engine. The engine started without hesitation and ran continuously for about 3 minutes at different power settings.
The four-seat, single-engine, high-wing airplane was built in 1962, and powered by a 375-horsepower Continental O-520-series engine, equipped with a three-blade, constant speed Hartzell propeller. The most recent annual inspection was completed on April 4, 2019. Review of maintenance records revealed that at the time of the most recent annual inspection, the airframe total time was 5,835.49 hours, and the engine time was 1,578.69 hours since major overhaul.
The pilot held a private pilot certificate, with ratings for airplane single-engine land and instrument airplane. His most recent FAA second class medical certificate was issued on October 1, 2018. He reported 1,000 total hours of flight experience at that time.

巧遇美女科学家Mona

精选
已有 33744 次阅读 2014-8-29 09:03 个人分类:国际交流系统分类:人物纪事关键词:科学家 Mona 美女 伊朗 获奖
上周在加拿大多伦多开会,IEEE Nano2014,这个会去年在北京开的时候认识了不少朋友,因此这次虽然远在加拿大,也很欣喜地去了,没想到,这次会上不仅是听到了很多很有启发的报告和讨论,更重要的遇到了美女科学家Mona。
Mona Jarrahi是她的全名,第一次看到她是程序册上的照片,都是大会的keynote Speaker,Mona的介绍正好印在我后面的一页上,拿到册子时随手翻到:哇塞,美女,还挺时尚!浏览了一下她的讲座题目“THz”,跟我没啥关系,因此也就没有仔细去看她的介绍和其他内容,就过去了。
第一天开会一如既往人很多是很热闹,第一个主题报告是多伦多大学的John Polanyi教授,1986年的诺贝尔化学奖奖获得者,80多岁了,不过讲的问题可是很时尚:“Chemistry at the Nano-level” Watchingsimple molecules react at surface, a molecule-At-A-Time”,老人家用了一个多小时的时间娓娓道来,他们近几年来在这方面的理论和试验工作,从最底层的化学反应角度来观察和解释纳米尺度下的一些现象,风度优雅,不时地穿插一些小幽默,整个讲座科学又风趣,没有套话和大话,还挺谦虚:他说希望他们这些基础化学的研究能够给纳米科技工作者一些帮助!提问的环节也很踊跃(我也提了一个问题),气氛非常好,中间休息的时候没有前呼后拥也没有阿谀奉承,他平凡地端着咖啡跟与会的学者交流,当然还有不少粉丝来求合影得啊!很荣幸我的报告被安排在了第一天上午的后半段,大家反应很热烈,也因此交到了不少新朋友,我整个人都沉浸在学术交流之中,没注意到谁跟谁,只顾上跟大家不停地讨论了。
就这样,到了第二天晚上,是大会的宴会,我心情十分愉快地到了宴会厅,在“Invited Speaker”那一桌寻找自己的座位,突然眼前一亮,一个红衣美女坐在我旁边的座位上:哇,这是谁的太太?这么漂亮!只见她微微地笑着跟我打招呼:Hello, I am Mona…..我当时就晕菜了:让不让人活了?你怎么比照片还漂亮?!当然,我没有说出口,只是长大嘴巴:Hi, Mona, Alice from Peking University, I saw your picture on the proceeding...... 接着大家就开始聊天,有很多认识她的朋友过来打招呼、祝贺,祝贺什么?原来,Mona今晚是来领奖的,她获得了IEEE NTC一年一度的青年科学家奖!这时候旁边一位她的同事说话了:Mona, congratulations! How many awards you win recently? 大家一聊,才知道原来Mona这几年是获奖专业户:美国总统奖,IEEE不同Society的奖,美国NSF,ARO,ONR,DARPA等各种给青年科学家的重要奖项都拿了个遍,真是拿奖拿到手发软的那种!可是她真的是非常年青啊,2007年才在斯坦福大学获得博士学位,2008年正式在University of Michigan Ann Arbor工作,最近刚刚搬到UCLA做Associate Professor(因为她的丈夫在UCLA生物系做教授,是她在斯坦福的同学),可是我们的Mona确实是一个大明星啦!当然,Mona很谦虚,说这不算什么,我的同学刚刚获得菲尔茨奖呢!原来刚刚获得数学界诺贝尔奖的伊朗数学家Maryam Mirzakhani是Mona在伊朗时候的大学同学,真是让人不敢相信,这个伊朗的谢里夫理工大学是个怎样的大学啊?尤其是该校的女学生为什么都这么优秀啊?!
大家聊得越发熟络起来,很快发现我们有很多共同的朋友(特别是在美国的伊朗教授,因为我的第一个外国朋友就是一位在美国的伊朗裔教授),我很是为他们感到骄傲,这是一个非常友善的精英群体!也聊起来她的科研工作,在毕业后开始独立科研的这7年里,Mona用Nanotechnology逐渐建立起来的具有非常大影响力的Advanced THz Technology,这在第二天她的报告里有了更为精彩的证明,她从基本物理出发,从基础理论和结构上突破了传统THz器件的瓶颈,结合“Nanophotonics and Plamonics”等为THz的研究揭开了一个新篇章,尽管她的实验室在从Michigan搬到洛杉矶的过程中,可是她的研究脚步却是一天都没有停下,她和她精干的学生团队在这一新领域不断地开拓着……这也是Mona在短短的几年里拿奖拿到手发软、经费从来不用愁的根源所在!
真高兴,这一次开会能够巧遇Mona,这位美女科学家,她不仅拥有惊艳的容貌,更是有着超人的智慧、谦虚的态度和拼命的精神,相信Mona教授会取得更大的成绩,祝福美女教授Mona!也希望我们周围更多一些象Mona一样的美女科学家!
才华胜容貌:再议美女科学家莫娜•贾勒希(Mona Jarrahi
诸平
张海霞博主的“巧遇美女科学家Mona”的博文访问量已经超过2万人次,我再想补充一点内容,使我们对于莫娜•贾勒希(Mona Jarrahi)美貌之外的内在才华有更深入的了解与认识。外在形象之美是父母给的,或者说是与生俱来的,当然也有人经过人造使自己形象更加迷人的。对于一个人的认识与了解,我们不仅要看其外在形象,更为重要的还是看她(他)的内心世界是否美丽,是否值得人们尊敬和爱戴。前不久为了抗击埃博拉疫情而献身的Mbalu Fonnie(穆巴鲁•方妮)和Alice Kovoma(阿丽斯•科沃玛),无论其长相如何,她们永远是我们活着的人心中最美的白衣天使。我也找到一些关于莫娜•贾勒希(Mona Jarrahi)的信息,读罢有一种感觉:才华胜过容貌。现将相关材料整理如下,供大家参考。
中学时代的心中梦想
莫娜•贾勒希(Mona Jarrahi)在伊朗出生,她现在是美国美国加州大学洛杉矶分校电气工程系(Electrical Engineering Department University of California Los Angeles)副教授。她早年毕业于伊朗谢里夫工业大学(Sharif University of Technology),获得电气工程学士学位,而她的电气工程硕士和博士学位则是在美国斯坦福大学(Stanford University)获得。她对于物理的钟爱,可以从高中阶段说起。高中阶段莫娜•贾勒希对物理很感兴趣,是因为她感到应用物理学中的有关定律,可以对我们日常生活中许多电子和机械的操作工具的工作原理作出解释。当然她并不满足自己已有的知识,渴望了解更多知识,发明能解决大问题,显著改善人们生活条件的新产品成为她心中的一个梦想,这种梦想成为促使她大学毕业之后再去美国求学的一种源动力
现在,她作为密歇根大学一名电气工程和应用物理学教授,正在创新研发供高级医学成像、化学传感、大气研究、空间探索、安检以及工业质量控制等应用的太赫兹设备和系统。她带领一个专门从事太赫兹光电设备和系统研究的科研小组,不仅要为申请科研经费费心,也要为招收研究生和博士后来探索新的研究设想而考虑,还要撰写论文,为各种会议和研究机构作报告,同时兼任多种科学期刊和杂志的编辑和审稿人,并参与会议组织委员会和其他各种专业委员会。除了培养教育研究生和本科生,指导博士后学者进行科学研究之外,还要为研究生和本科生讲授太赫兹技术、光学和电磁学课程。不同领域之间的空白地带可能存在的机会更多一些,但是也对新领域的开拓者来说有更高的要求。因此,不断更新自己的已有知识,随时准备涉足新的研究方向也已经成为莫娜•贾勒希的未来发展方向。充满雄心别自卑,路遇障碍勿气馁也可以说就是她的座右铭。用莫娜•贾勒希的话说就是:Many opportunities exist in gaps between fields, so keep your knowledge up-to-date and be ready to dive into new research directions. Be ambitious and never think you aren't good enough. Believe in yourself and don't get discouraged by the obstacles along your way.
莫娜•贾勒希的研究兴趣涉及到太赫兹/毫米波电子学、光电子学和新材料(Terahertz/Millimeter-Wave Electronics, Optoelectronics, and Novel Materials);微波光子学和超快电光学(Microwave Photonics and Ultrafast Electro-Optics);太赫兹/红外成像和光谱学(Terahertz/Infrared Imaging and Spectroscopy)等。

2018.07.14 01:14 assessment_bot [ Non-Fatal ] [ 06/25/2018 ] CESSNA 340A, Orlando/ FL

On June 25, 2018, about 0815 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 340A airplane, N60E, overran the runway during an aborted takeoff attempt at Orlando Executive Airport (ORL), Orlando, Florida. The private pilot/owner and his 3 passengers were not injured. The airplane was substantially damaged when it encountered a large drainage culvert after it exited the paved runway surface. The airplane was registered to Little Dreams Aviation, and operated as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions existed at ORL about the time of the accident. The flight was originating from ORL when the accident occurred.
According to the pilot, the airplane was based in Michigan, and the accident flight was the first leg of a return trip to Michigan. The pilot began the takeoff roll using the full length of runway 7. He reported that at first, the takeoff roll and acceleration seemed normal, but then he felt a "sudden lag inforward motion." The pilot stated that the maximum speed he observed on the airspeed indicator (ASI) was 43 knots, and that the ASI needle "seemed to be fluttering" at that speed, and was no longer increasing. He verified that the mixture, propeller, and throttle controls were fully forward. Based on the "lag" sensation and the ASI indications, the pilot decided to abort the takeoff.
The pilot said that he began the abort procedure when the airplane was about half-way down the runway, and he "pulled power'" and used the brakes and spoilers to decelerate the airplane. He determined that the airplane did not appear likely to stop before overrunning the end of the runway, and in order to avoid a collision with structures beyond the runway end, he steered the airplane off the right side of the runway. The airplane tracked through grass for a while, and then struck a large drainage culvert that was oriented parallel to the runway. The pilot shut down the airplane and the occupants exited. There was no fire. The airplane came to rest about 500 ft beyond the runway 25 threshold. The nose and nose landing gear were damaged, and the right side propeller was also damaged.
The pilot held a private pilot certificate with airplane singe-engine land, multi-engine land, and instrument airplane ratings. He reported that he had about 1,078 hours total flight experience, including about 396 hours in multi-engine aircraft, and about 33 hours in the accident airplane make and model.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records indicated that the airplane was manufactured in 1979, and was equipped with two Continental Motors TSIO-520 series engines. The airplane was registered to the pilot on March 27, 2018. The pilot reported that the airplane had a total time (TT) in service of about 4,518 hours. The left engine had a TT of about 2,642 hours, and a time since major overhaul (TSMOH) of about 385 hours. The right engine had a TT and TSMOH of about 1,043 hours. The airplane's most recent annual inspection was completed in October 2017.
ORL was situated at an elevation of 113 ft above mean sea level, and was equipped with two paved runways, designated 07/25 and 13/31. Runway 7/25 was asphalt, and measured 150 ft by 6,004 ft. ORL was equipped with an air traffic control tower, which was staffed and operating at the time of the accident.
The 0753 ORL automated weather observation included winds from 070 at 4 knots, visibility 10 miles, clear skies, temperature 26 C, dew point 24 C, and an altimeter setting of 30.11 inches of mercury.

2018.06.30 13:42 rm_a 2018 Ultimate College Football Road Trip

2018 Ultimate College Football Road Trip

As a big fan of both college football and road trips, I set out to create a road trip that would allow one to attend as many college football games as possible in 2018.

Guidelines

The goal is simple: attend as many college football games in 2018 as possible. I aimed mainly for Division 1 teams, with a slight preference to G5 teams because I like them. Some D2/D3 conferences don't seem to have a schedule released, though this should have a minimal impact as the vast majority of D2/D3 games are on Saturdays. As we'll see later, there are a bunch of games that have TBD times that we'll need to work with. The assumption is each game lasts 3 and a half hours. All times are in Eastern Time to make time zones easier to deal with. Travel times and distrances are calculated on Google Maps, with the ability to make up a little time on the road if necessary.
For the purpose of this post, the games were chosen based on ability to travel by car (with one exception) or other ground methods of transportation. Leave your frequent flier card at home, we're putting the miles on your car. Since cars require maintenance, we also need to factor in oil changes, and routine maintenance at specific milestones.
Starting out, you will need a buddy to share driving with, a pillow (you aren't staying at hotels most nights, sorry), your passport, ample food, and a few many Red Bulls.

Game 1: Wednesday, August 22 6:00PM Muskingum Muskingum Fighting Muskies at Wittenberg Wittenberg Tigers (Scrimmage)

In all my research, it appears that this is the first college football game in 2018 between two different colleges in the US. We're starting out our adventures in Springfield, Ohio, midway between Dayton and Columbus, with a scrimmage between two D3 teams. A nice matchup before we get to full-fledged action.

Game 2: Saturday, August 26 Time TBD Duquesne Duquesne Dukes at UMass UMass Minutemen

Travel: 751 miles, 11 hrs 19 min
There's a number of games on the Saturday of "Week 0" but this will be the only time we see UMass play, and it's at home so we get to see the UMass Marching Band. They're better than the football team.
Time is TBD, however largely irrelevant. Other Saturdays this will not be the case.

Game 3: Thursday, August 30 6PM Ouachita Baptist Ouachita Baptist Tigers at Northwestern (OK) Northwestern Oklahoma State Rangers

Travel: 1,679 miles, 24 hrs
We're watching some midweek GACtion, despite many other schools starting games up. Ouachita Baptist made the D2 playoffs last year, so this could be a good game. A couple hours away Oklahoma State is playing Missouri State, but we're taking this game instead because there won't be any untimed downs.

Game 4: Friday, August 31 9:30PM Colorado Colorado Buffaloes vs Colorado State Colorado State Rams (Denver, CO)

Travel: 522 miles, 7 hrs 51 min
Rocky Mountain Showdown under the lights. Get ready for our first double header in just a few hours.

Game 5: Saturday, September 1 12PM FAU Florida Atlantic Owls at Oklahoma Oklahoma Sooners

Travel: 697 miles, 9 hrs 57 min
Last night's game ended at 1AM (11PM local). This game kicks off at 12PM (11AM local), so we have time to get some gas in Kansas and try to find some food, but there's minimal time we're off the road. Lane Kiffin looks to extend his winning streak in one of the more exciting matchups of the weekend.

Game 6: Saturday, September 1 7PM Central Arkansas Central Arkansas Bears at Tulsa Tulsa Golden Hurricane

Travel: 127 miles, 2 hrs
While Joey Freshwater is hitting the bars, we're hitting the road. We have three and a half hours to make it to Tulsa. Central Arkansas was 10-2 last year and Tulsa was 2-10, so we could witness an FCS upset.

Game 7: Sunday, September 2 7:30PM Miami Miami Hurricanes vs LSU LSU Tigers (Arlington, TX)

Travel: 276 miles, 4 hrs 19 min
Opening weekend means bonus football. This is a primetime game so we have travel time to spare.

Game 8: Monday, September 3 8PM Virginia Tech Virginia Tech Hokies at Florida State Florida State Seminoles

Travel: 858 miles, 12 hrs 53 min
The only game on Labor Day is a matchup between ACC powerhouses in Tallahassee.

Game 9: Thursday, September 6 7PM Lincoln (MO) Lincoln University Blue Tigers at Missouri State Missouri State Bears

Travel: 818 miles, 13 hrs 11 min
FCS Missouri State takes on D2 Lincoln in this weeknight matchup. We're coming up on 6,000 miles and it isn't even the second Saturday of the season, so it's time for a tire rotation and oil change in Missouri.

Game 10: Friday, September 7 8PM TCU TCU Horned Frogs at SMU SMU Mustangs

Travel: 414 miles, 6 hrs 37 min
The Battle for the Iron Skillet continues for a 98th year in Dallas.

Game 11: Saturday, September 8 12PM Mississippi State Mississippi State Bulldogs at Kansas State Kansas State Wildcats

Travel: 494 miles, 7 hrs 24 min
Once again, we're driving on a Friday night. This week the trip is a bit shorter, only to Manhattan, Kansas for a SEC-Big 12 matchup. It just means more.

Game 12: Saturday, September 8 7PM Wyoming Wyoming Cowboys at Missouri Missouri Tigers

Travel: 249 miles, 3 hrs 49 min
We're keeping the SEC theme for our doubleheader, and we're also hauling ass. We need to make up 20 minutes on I-70 to make kickoff, but it'll be doable. We'll see how Wyoming does without Josh Allen, and how Drew Lock looks in his senior season.

Game 13: Thursday, September 13 7:30PM Boston College Boston College Eagles at Wake Forest Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Travel: 843 miles, 12 hrs 29 min
Boston College and Wake Forest battle it out in an ACC Atlantic matchup.

Game 14: Friday, September 14 7PM Georgia State Georgia State Panthers at Memphis Memphis Tigers

Travel: 652 miles, 9 hrs 47 min
Your 2025 National Champions look to pick up a win over a team towards the top of a Power 6 conference.

Game 15: Saturday, September 15 12PM Miami Miami Hurricanes at Toledo Toledo Rockets

Travel: 682 miles, 10 hrs
By this time we're used to traveling on Friday nights. This week we're going to a packed Glass Bowl in Toledo. How could we pass up a (likely) ranked P5 team visiting a G5 team?

Game 16: Saturday, Setember 15 4PM Eastern Kentucky Eastern Kentucky Colonels at Bowling Green Bowling Green Falcons

Travel: 25 miles, 28 min
One of the advantages of having your rival a half hour away is an intense rivalry game. In our case, it helps us complete our doubleheader. Toledo's cross division rival, Bowling Green, takes on FCS Eastern Kentucky as we arrive minutes before kickoff.

Game 17: Thursday, September 20 7:30PM Tulsa Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Temple Temple Owls

Travel: 542 miles, 8 hrs 18 min
Tulsa travels to Philadelphia in a cross division AAC matchup.

Game 18: Friday, September 21 9PM Penn State Penn State Nittany Lions at Illinois Illinois Fighting Illini

Travel: 769 miles, 11 hrs 49 min
Penn State night games are nice, except this one is in Champaign so there's no whiteout. Lovie Smith looks for his first big win for the Illini.

Game 19: Saturday, September 22 12PM Shepherd Shepherd Rams at West Virginia State West Virginia State Yellow Jackets

Travel: 428 miles, 6 hrs 42 min
We're off to West Virginia for some noon D2 football. It's that time of the year where times are still TBD, so we're seeing games where times have already been announced – mostly lower division. Another possible doubleheader (depending on game times) is: Michigan State Michigan State Spartans at Indiana Indiana Hoosiers, WKU Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Ball State Ball State Cardinals, Boston College Boston College Eagles at Purdue Purdue Boilermakers (noon)

Game 20: Saturday, September 22 7PM NC State NC State Wolfpack at Marshall Marshall Thundering Herd

Travel: 41 miles, 46 min
It's the third week in a road where we're watching a P5 travel to a G5. I could get used to this. We Are!

Game 21*: Sunday, September 23 4:30PM Fort Valley State Fort Valley State Wildcats at Benedict Benedict College

Travel: 403 miles, 6 hrs 23 min
This game intrigues me. While searching D2 schedules, I came across this game scheduled for a Sunday. It's the only Sunday game I have seen besides Miami vs LSU on Labor Day weekend. ESPN has this game listed on their site for Sunday, as do the two colleges. Benedict's press release lists the game on Saturday, Fort Valley State does not have a press release for the schedule. Did an intern transpose the date incorrectly? Do we actually have Sunday football? Regardless, we're heading to Columbia, SC in search of Sunday college football.

Game 22: Thursday, September 27 8PM North Carolina North Carolina Tarheels at Miami Miami Hurricanes

Travel: 627 miles, 8 hrs 41 min
Our third time watching Miami play, but first time we see them at home. Another tire rotation and oil change are in order before we head to Friday's game.

Game 23: Friday, September 28 8PM Memphis Memphis Tigers at Tulane Tulane Golden Wave

Travel: 852 miles, 11 hrs 38 min
The only other D1 games this Friday at in the northeast or Colorado. Tulane is the closest, so we're off to the Big Easy.

Game 24: Saturday, September 29 1PM Morehead State Morehead State Eagles at Butler Butler Bulldogs

Travel: 827 miles, 11 hrs 38 min
It's the second day in a row of a nearly 12 hour drive, but a schedule full of TBD times has us watching some non-scholarship football in Indianapolis.
Another possible doubleheader is a bunch of home games in North Carolina. Two of these games are bound to have kickoff times that allow a doubleheader: South Alabama South Alabama Jaguars at Appalachian State Appalachian State Mountaineers, Rice Rice Owls at Wake Forest Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Virginia Tech Virginia Tech Hokies at Duke Duke Blue Devils, Virginia Virginia Cavaliers at NC State NC State Wolfpack, Old Dominion Old Dominion Monarchs at ECU East Carolina Pirates.

Game 25: Saturday, September 29 7:30PM Stanford Stanford Cardinal at Notre Dame Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Travel: 137 miles, 2 hrs 24 min
We're cutting it close, getting to South Bend about a half hour before kickoff. It'll be one of two #Pac12AfterDark games this trip.

Game 26: Thursday, October 4 8PM Tulsa Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Houston Houston Cougars

Travel: 1,147 miles, 17 hrs 24 min
I originally had this day as Georgia State Georgia State at Troy Troy, but Houston has a semi-new stadium that is worth checking out. Fear not, Troy fans, we'll see the Trojans in a few weeks.

Game 27: Friday, October 5 7PM Georgia Tech Georgie Tech Yellow Jackets at Louisville Louisville Cardinals

Travel: 955 miles, 14 hrs 32 min
We're headed back north for a Friday night ACC matchup.

Game 28: Saturday, October 6 12PM McMurry McMurry Warhawks at Belhaven Belhaven Blazers

Travel: 588 miles, 8 hrs 23 min
And we're going back down south for a noon kickoff in Jackson, MS between D3 schools.

Game 29: Saturday, October 7 7PM UAB UAB Blazers at Louisiana Tech Louisiana Tech Bulldogs

Travel: 155 miles, 2 hrs 14 min
There's a number of D1 games within a couple hours of Jackson on October 7, but only this one has a kickoff time. Any of the following games would work with a 7PM kickoff or later: Connecticut UConn at Memphis Memphis, ULM ULM at Ole Miss Ole Miss, Auburn Auburn at Mississippi State Mississippi State.

Game 30: Tuesday, October 9 8PM Appalachian State Appalachian State Mountaineers at Arkansas State Arkansas State Red Wolves

Travel: 301 miles, 4 hrs 58 min
It's the thirtieth game of the trip and finally a Tuesday game - we've seen a game on every day of the week! After the long drives to the previous games, a 5 hour drive is nothing.

Game 31: Thursday, October 11 7:30PM Georgia Southern Georgia Southern Eagles at Texas State Texas State Bobcats

Travel: 672 miles, 9 hrs 54 min
Our Sun Belt drought was snapped last game, and now we're watching a second Sun Belt game in three days.

Game 32: Friday, October 12 7PM USF USF Bulls at Tulsa Tulsa Golden Hurricane

Travel: 483 miles, 7 hrs 23 min
We're at around 18,000 miles less than two months in, so before the game the car's getting another oil change, tire rotation, and whatever else it needs. It's our fourth time seeing Tulsa, and second time at Chapman Stadium. The Tulsa football team is getting a little creeped out.

Game 33: Saturday, October 13 1PM UAB UAB Blazers at Rice Rice Owls

Travel: 505 miles, 7 hrs 31 min
We're seeing UAB in back to back weekends as they take on Rice in Houston.

Game 34: Saturday, October 13 7PM Louisiana Tech Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at UTSA UTSA Roadrunners

Travel: 197 miles, 2 hrs 47 min
We're also seeing Louisiana Tech in back to back weekends as well. The 7PM kickoff means that we need to make up 17 minutes on I-10.

Game 35: Thursday, October 18 9PM Stanford Stanford Cardinal at Arizona State Arizona State Sun Devils

Travel: 982 miles, 14 hrs 9 min
Finally. We've been traveling across the eastern half of the United States and finally we have made it out west. My original plan was home games at Arkansas State Arkansas State, Pennsylvania Penn, Bucknell Bucknell, and Morgan State Morgan State (shoutout to the Magnificent Marching Machine), but game times were updated since I originally planned it out so we're headed west. We're watching some real #Pac12AfterDark.

Game 36: Friday, October 19 9PM Colorado State Colorado State Rams at Boise State Boise State Broncos

Travel: 928 miles, 14 hrs 32 min
There's a Friday night game in Las Vegas, Air Force Air Force at UNLV UNLV, however my experience with the residents of Boise makes the extra 10 hour drive through nothingness in Nevada absolutely worth it. After the game, we won't have time to go to the bars with the Boise locals because we have a long drive to make

Game 37: Saturday, October 20 4PM Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Stags at Occidental Occidental Tigers

Travel: 842 miles, 13 hrs 57 min
We're taking the long overnight drive from Boise to watch a D3 matchup in the oldest college football stadium in Los Angeles. No time for sleeping after the game - we have another game to catch.

Game 38: Saturday, October 20 10:30PM San José State San Jose State Spartans at San Diego State San Diego State Aztecs

Travel: 125 miles, 2 hrs 9 min
To my surprise the drive from LA to San Diego leaves nearly an hour to account for traffic, time to park the car, and a graceful walk to the stadium for a #MWCAfterMidnight game.

Game 39: Tuesday, October 23 8PM Troy Troy Trojans at South Alabama South Alabama Jaguars

Travel: 1,930 miles, 28 hrs
It's a good thing there's no Monday games.

Game 40: Thursday, October 25 7PM Baylor Baylor Bears at West Virginia West Virginia Mountaineers

Travel: 937 miles, 14 hrs 13 min
We've almost hit the halfway mark in our journey, and what better way to celebrate it than with Country Roads and couch burning. I love Morgantown.

Game 41: Friday, October 26 8PM Indiana Indiana Hoosiers at Minnesota Minnesota Golden Gophers

Travel: 934 miles, 14 hrs 31 min
We'll get another oil change and tire rotation before this Big Ten matchup. We've put another 6,500 miles on the car in exactly 2 weeks.

Game 42: Saturday, October 27 12PM Charleston (WV) Charleston Golden Eagles at Notre Dame (OH) Notre Dame Falcons

Travel: 763 miles, 11 hrs 43 min
Not that Notre Dame. This Notre Dame is located outside Cleveland, Ohio.

Game 43: Saturday, October 27 7PM Walsh Walsh Cavaliers at Findlay Findlay Oilers

Travel: 158 miles, 2 hrs 23 min
This game was originally Navy Navy at Notre Dame Notre Dame, but duffman13jws corrected me that the game was actually in San Diego. We can't get across the country that fast.

Game 44: Tuesday, October 30 8PM Miami (OH) Miami Redhawks at Buffalo Buffalo Bulls

Travel: 326 miles, 5 hrs 4 min
Put your passport away, we're going through Ohio and Pennsylvania to get to Buffalo. But keep it handy, we'll need it later.

Game 45: Wednesday, October 31 7:30PM Ball State Ball State Cardinals at Toledo Toledo Rockets

Travel: 318 miles, 5 hrs 4 min
5 hours back the way we just came. And there was a Tuesday night game only half an hour away at Bowling Green State University, but we decided to drive to Buffalo. Isn't this fun?

Game 46: Thursday, November 1 7PM Ohio Ohio Bobcats at Western Michigan Western Michigan Broncos

Travel: 155 miles, 2 hrs 27 min
It's our third MAC game in a row, but we aren't complaining because our other option was to drive down to see the National Champion UCF UCF Knights all the way in Orlando.

Game 47: Friday, November 2 7:30PM Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Panthers at Virginia Virginia Cavaliers

Travel: 678 miles, 10 hrs 53 min
We can make all the jokes in the world about the quality of this football game, but Virginia's basketball team was bowl eligible last year and their basketball team had the #1 seed in the men's basketball tournament. We'll celebrate their successes by visiting Charlottesville.

Game 48: Saturday, November 3 12PM Air Force Air Force Falcons at Army Army Black Nights

Travel: 389 miles, 6 hrs 31 min
No college football bucket list is complete without a visit to West Point for game day. We even left time to check out Highland Falls and to tailgate on Buffalo Soldier Field.

Game 49: Saturday, November 3 5PM Framingham State Framingham State Rams at Western Connecticut Western Connecticut Colonials

Travel: 54 miles, 1 hr 6 min
A jump across the Hudson, and we're at the second game of our doubleheader for this weekend - a D3 matchup in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Game 50: Tuesday, November 6 7:30PM Kent State Kent State Golden Flashes at Buffalo Buffalo Bulls

Travel: 391 miles, 6 hrs 13 min
Back to the track stadium to watch some Tuesday night MACtion.

Game 51: Wednesday, November 7 TBD Ohio Ohio Bobcats at Miami (OH) Miami Redhawks

Travel: 450 miles, 7 hrs 8 min
Battle of the Bricks on a Wednesday night.

Game 52: Thursday, November 8 7:30PM Wake Forest Wake Forest Demon Deacons at NC State NC State Wolfpack

Travel: 538 miles, 8 hrs 49 min
It's November which means a game a day except for Sundays and Mondays, thanks to the NFL. Luckily all the games are at night or else we'd be pulling doubleheaders.

Game 53: Friday, November 9 7PM Louisville Louisville Cardinals at Syracuse Syracuse Orange

Travel: 649 miles, 10 hrs 2 min
You won't need your passport to get into the Cuse Nation for this trap game. Syracuse has won 6 of their last 7 Friday home games, including two against ranked opponents.

Game 54: Saturday, November 10 2PM Centre Centre Colonels at Birmingham-Southern Birmingham Southern Panthers

Travel: 1,043 miles, 15 hrs 45 min
It's a long trip, but it's going to be slightly shorter since we need to make up 15 minutes on the road. Our next game is slightly less of a drive.

Game 55: Saturday, November 10 7:30PM Southern Miss Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles at UAB UAB Blazers

Travel 1 mile, 5 min
Yes, you could walk it. No, you won't want to walk it. We're driving. Our overnight drive to Alabama has us at around 7,000 miles since our last trip to the shop, so we're back for an oil change, tire rotation, and a 30,000 mile service. In three months we've more than doubled the miles the average American drives in a year.

Game 56: Tuesday, November 13 6PM Western Michigan Western Michigan Broncos at Ball State Ball State Cardinals

Travel: 538 miles, 8 hrs 5 min
We're off to see some Tuesday night MACtion. We'll stay at Garry Gergich's timeshare in Muncie after the game. Or was his name Jerry? Larry, maybe?

Game 57: Wednesday, November 14 TBD Miami (OH) Miami Redhawks at Northern Illinois Northern Illinois Huskies

Travel: 290 miles, 4 hrs 39 min
More MACtion - this time in DeKalb. We've experienced MACtion in all five states.

Game 58: Thursday, November 15 9:30PM FAU Florida Atlantic Owls at North Texas North Texas Mean Green

Travel: 938 miles, 13 hrs 55 min
We haven't come to the faU this road trip, and we won't, but we'll catch another Owls road game.

Game 59: Friday, November 16 9PM Boise State Boise State Broncos at New Mexico New Mexico Lobos

Travel: 611 miles, 9 hrs 9 min
Yep, we're headed out west again. This time, we're seeing a game in New Mexico.

Game 60: Saturday, November 17 4PM Sacramento State Sacramento State Hornets at UC Davis UC Davis Aggies

Travel: 1,098 miles, 16 hrs 38 min
Ok, I know this is a huge stretch. We need to make this drive in 15 hrs 30 minutes. The speed limit on I-40 is 75mph, so I guess we're going 85.

Game 61: Saturday, November 17 10:30PM San Diego State San Diego State Aztecs at Fresno State Fresno State Bulldogs

Travel: 187 miles, 2 hrs 55 min
It's a hell of a day, I know. This #MWCAfterMidnight game kicks off 3 hours after the Aggies game ends.

Game 62: Tuesday, November 20 7PM Ball State Ball State Cardinals at Miami (OH) Miami Redhawks

Travel: 2,301 miles, 34 hrs
We're headed back to Oxford for our fourth Miami game. We got an oil change and tire rotation a week ago, but a trip to California put another 6,000 miles on the car so we get that taken care of here.

Game 63: Thursday, November 22 3:30PM Colorado State Colorado State Rams at Air Force Air Force Falcons

Travel: 1,172 miles, 17 hrs 38 min
We're skipping the Egg Bowl Egg Bowl to see another game at a service academy. Happy Thanksgiving!

Game 64: Friday, November 23 12PM Texas Texas Longhorns at Kansas Kansas Jayhawks

Travel: 551 miles, 8 hrs 10 min
So Black Friday has a few games that could allow for double headers, mostly in the Ohio region. But we don't have game times yet, so we have to pick a game. Texas hasn't lost to Kansas since....2016.

Game 65: Saturday, November 24 1PM Old Dominion Old Dominion Monarchs at Rice Rice Owls

Travel: 764 miles, 11 hrs 30 min
It's the last day of the regular season for the vast majority of teams, and we're headed to Texas.

Game 66: Saturday, November 24 7PM North Texas North Texas Mean Green at UTSA UTSA Roadrunners

Travel: 197 miles, 2 hrs 57 min
Out of all of our times that we need to make up time on the road, this could be the hardest. We need to cut off half an hour of a three hour drive. It means going 80mph down I-10. Yikes.

Game 67: Friday, November 30 7PM MAC MAC Championship (Detroit, MI)

Travel: 1,457 miles, 21 hrs 40 min
It's conference championship time and we aren't done watching MACtion. Too bad it isn't on a Tuesday night. The MAC is the only G5 conference to have a neutral site for the championship.

Game 68: Saturday, December 1 8PM Big Ten Big Ten Championship (Indianapolis, IN)

Travel: 301 miles, 4 hrs 38 min
These drives are getting better, after the November we had.

Game 69: Saturday, December 8 3PM Army Army Black Knights vs Navy Navy Midshipmen (Philadelphia, PA)

Travel: 650 miles, 10 hrs 17 min
There's D2 and D3 playoffs going on, but times and locations are TBD. It's time to watch America's Game.

Game 70: Saturday, December 15 12PM Celebration Bowl Celebration Bowl (MEAC MEAC vs SWAC SWAC - Atlanta, GA)

Travel: 794 miles, 12 hrs 22 min
The Celebration Bowl is the de facto National Championship for FCS HBCU schools, and the beginning of our first double header in nearly a month.

Game 71: Saturday, December 15 5:30PM Camellia Bowl Camellia Bowl (Sun Belt Sun Belt vs MAC MAC - Montgomery, AL)

Travel: 162 miles, 2 hrs 19 min
Our first FBS Bowl of the season and we are flying down I-85 to make it to Montgomery in time. Another 6,000 miles has elapsed - we get the oil change and tire rotation after the game.

Game 72: Tuesday, December 18 7PM Boca Raton Bowl Boca Raton Bowl (American American vs Conference USA C-USA - Boca Raton, FL)

Travel: 645 miles, 9 hrs 46 min
Ok, I lied above. I guess technically we are coming to the faU, but unless the Owls get a second home bowl game in a row, we won't see Mr. Freshwater.

Game 73: Wednesday, December 19 8PM Frisco Bowl Frisco Bowl (American American vs At Large - Frisco, TX)

Travel: 1,325 miles, 18 hrs 41 min
We're stuck with the long drive since there's only one bowl game. The Frisco Bowl is only a year old, and is held in a soccer stadium.

Game 74: Thursday, December 20 8PM Gasparilla Bowl Gasparilla Bowl (American American vs ACC ACC/Conference USA C-USA - Tampa, FL)

Travel: 1,130 miles, 16 hrs 36 min
Back to Florida for the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl. At least this year it's in a football stadium.

Game 75: Friday, December 21 12:30PM Bahamas Bowl Bahamas Bowl (MAC MAC vs Conference USA C-USA - Nassau, Bahamas)

Travel: 22 miles, 40 min
Here's the biggest stretch of them all. There's two bowl games on this day - in Boise and the Bahamas. There is not a snowball's chance in hell we can go from Tampa to Boise in 16 hours - we'd have to be going over double the speed limit. Rather than take a day off we're going to the Bahamas. We'll drive to Tampa International Airport, conveniently located right next to the Gasparilla Bowl. Our passport is finally being used!
Our flight is Delta 1872, leaving TPA at 6:30AM on Saturday morning. With a 38 minute layover in ATL, we land at NAS at 10:45AM. After getting a rental and making the 14 km (9 mile) drive to Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium, we're ready to watch the game.
With a 12:30 kickoff, we expect to have the game end at 4pm. Add in our 16 min drive back to the airport, it's 4:16pm. The last flight that gets us back to TPA in time for us to make our next game is Jet Blue flight B6 2394, leaving NAS at 7:05pm. Most websites that I see suggest arriving at NAS about 3 hrs prior to an international flight, so we're cutting it close but can still make the flight. After a 2 hour layover in FLL, Spirit flight NK 574 gets us back to Tampa at 11:20pm. If somebody tells you the Bahamas is not a day trip, we just proved them wrong.

Game 76: Saturday, December 22 12PM Birmingham Bowl Birmingham Bowl (American American vs SEC SEC - Birmingham, AL)

Travel: 569 miles, 8 hrs, 55 min
Spirit Airlines is well known for delayed flights, so luckily we have a ~3 and a half hour cushion between our expected arrival at TPA to when we need to leave to drive to Birmingham.

Game 77: Saturday, December 22 7PM Dollar General Mobile Bowl Mobile Bowl (Sun Belt Sun Belt vs MAC MAC - Mobile, AL)

Travel: 260 miles, 3 hrs 44 min
We've had little rest in the last week - nearly everything has been back to back and this bowl game is no different. We need to make up 14 minutes on the road, but by now we're pros at speeding. Unfortunately, it's our last Saturday double header.

Game 78: Wednesday, December 26 1:30PM Heart of Dallas Bowl Heart of Dallas Bowl (Big Ten Big Ten vs ACC ACC/Conference USA C-USA - Dallas, TX)

Travel: 584 miles, 9 hrs
We get a few days off, but we're back on the road for our final stretch.

Game 79: Thursday, December 27 1:30PM Independence Bowl Independence Bowl (SEC SEC vs ACC ACC/Notre Dame Notre Dame - Shreveport, LA)

Travel: 182 miles, 2 hrs 37 min
It's the shortest travel we've had between games in nearly two weeks.

Game 80: Thursday, December 27 9PM Texas Bowl Texas Bowl (SEC SEC vs Big 12 Big 12 - Houston, TX)

Travel: 239 miles, 4 hrs 2 min
Are you kidding me? A double header on a Thursday with no time to spare between games?

Game 81: Friday, December 28 9PM Alamo Bowl Alamo Bowl (Big 12 Big 12 vs Pac-12 Pac 12 - San Antonio, TX)

Travel: 199 miles, 2 hrs 58 min
Coming off a double header, I tried to find a way to make a double double header with the three games being played, but unfortunately we can't make either of the other games.

Game 82: Saturday, December 29 1PM Arizona Bowl Arizona Bowl (Mountain West Mountain West vs Sun Belt Sun Belt - Tuscon, AZ)

Travel: 870 miles, 12 hrs 8 min
Just when you thought the long drives were over, we’re driving to Tuscon. We've seen every other G5 conference play in a bowl game besides the Mountain West, so we’re skipping the playoff games. We get our last oil change and tire rotation of our journey, and a 50,000 mile service. We haven't driven 50,000 miles yet though, we're only at 49,564.

Game 83: Monday, December 31 3PM Foster Farms San Francisco Bowl San Francisco Bowl (Big Ten Big Ten vs Pac-12 Pac 12 - Santa Clara, CA)

Travel: 832 miles, 12 hrs 24 min
Knowing that we neglected the Pac 12 a lot during the regular season, we’re hitting up all of the bowl games now. We’ll see a total of 3 Pac 12 teams in 5 days.

Game 84: Tuesday, January 1 5PM Rose Bowl Rose Bowl (Big Ten Big Ten vs Pac-12 Pac 12 - Pasadena, CA)

Travel: 346 miles, 5 hrs 7 min
5 hours later we’re in Pasadena. We've now seen as many games as Rutgers Kansas plays in seven seasons, but we're not done yet. There's one game left.

Game 85: Monday, January 7 8PM College Football Playoff CFP National Championship (Santa Clara, CA)

Travel: 347 miles, 5 hrs 7 min
Hooray! We’re made it. We turn around and head back to Santa Clara for the last game of our long season. Despite what the Nevada Dental Association says about UCF, this National Championship goes in the record books.

Statistics

We watched 85 games. 1 was a scrimmage, 66 were regular season games, 4 were Championships (including the Celebration Bowl), and 14 were bowl games.
Excluding bowl games, we have seen 74 different FBS teams. The conference we saw the least was the SEC, where was saw three teams once. We saw teams from the MAC the most - 18 times, but the ACC had the most number of unique teams - 12.

We saw a double header 16 times, and despite my best efforts I could not find a single triple header, though I am convinced one exists. If you find one, I am very interested in knowing when/where.

The Route

We drove 50,868 miles in 31 days, 22 hours, and 50 minutes according to the GPS, excluding any time we made up. Over a month was spent purely driving. At 35 mpg on the highway and $2.85 a gallon for gas, we spent over $4,000 just on gas. We also changed the oil a number of times, got some other maintenance, and rented a car in the Bahamas.
We traveled through all but 14 states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii.
Of the states that we visited, Oregon, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware we did not see a game in. If the Sunday game at Benedict College is actually an error, South Carolina is added to this list.
You can access the map here. Some locations I used the campus rather than the football stadium for, and the mileage is ~100 miles different than the individual destination to destination totals that I used Google Maps for. It also does not include our trip to the Bahamas. But it gives a general sense as to what our route was.
We saw a football game in every FBS stadium in New York, West Virginia, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, Idaho, and Arizona (though we never saw the Wildcats, they host a bowl game).
OptiMap does not show the distribution by state, but we saw the most games in Texas.
The fastest trip was Birmingham-Southern Birmingham Southern to UAB UAB Blazers - 1 mile
The longest trip was Fresno State Fresno State to Miami (OH) Miami - 2,301 miles

Training

I started training for this race in March 2017. Before that, I was NOT a runner. My sister had the idea to run this half-marathon with Team In Training, a fundraising organization for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As a lymphoma survivor, this idea really appealed to me and I agreed to fundraise and train and run it as a team with my sister and our father.
I started with Zombies 5K, which is similar to Couch to 5K (but so much more fun). I graduated and started running 16-20 mpw through the spring and summer. At the beginning of my training I was S-L-O-W (15 min/mi), but I had faith that if I just kept chugging along the speed would come. My faith was not misplaced, and when fall rolled around my easy pace had come down to 12 min/mi...I'm still no speed demon, but I was very pleased with my progress.
Approximately 12 weeks before the race I started following the training program provided by the Team in Training folks. It was basically 4-5 runs a week, with shorter (2-4 mi) runs on the week days and long runs on the weekends. Long runs increased gradually from 6 mi to 12 mi. I trusted that the training program would get me where I needed to be and followed it as closely as I could. This got REALLY hard when the weather got colder and the days got shorter. It was so hard to roll out of bed at 5 am to get a run in before work in the dark and in the cold, but I was very proud of myself for getting up and doing it most days.
My dad and I never trained together, but we kept each other up-to-date on our training runs. He has been running for many years, so he was great for encouragement and helpful tips. My sister, who also had run for many years, dropped the ball on her training. She didn't run at all for 4 months leading up to the race. This was a real cause of stress for me leading up to the race...I wanted us to run together as a team, and at the same time I didn't want months of training to go down the drain if she couldn't manage more than walking the race. Ultimately I decided I would do what felt right on race day.

Pre-race

I flew down to Orlando with my sister the day before the race. We got our rental car and drove to the expo to pick up our bibs. This was a major source of anxiety for me...we had had some winter weather in MD and I was worried about flight delays that could mean we wouldn't get to the expo in time. This worry was for naught, and we got there in plenty of time. We met up with dad for dinner at one of the Disney resort cafeterias (pasta pasta pasta!) and turned in early.
We were advised by people at the expo to get to Epcot (where the race started) by 3:30 AM because they expected a lot of traffic congestion getting to the race start. My sister and I got up at 3, dressed hastily and were parked at Epcot by 3:45. There was not a lot of traffic yet, but with just one entrance to the parking lot open, I can see how it would jam up quickly. We had some water and bagles with peanut butter in the car before walking to the race start.

Race

In the staging area we met up with dad, took some pics at the Team in Training tent, and dropped out bags off at the bag check. It was WAY colder than one would hope for in Orlando, ~38°F at race start, so we held onto our sweat shirts until the last minute. After we dropped our bags, we had a bit of water and hit the port-o-potties before walking about half a mile to our corral at the race start. I decided that I would do my best to hang with my team, and so I moved back to Corral H to start with them. We heard the national anthem and heard the first runners leave at 5:30, and then huddled into our corral and waited for our turn. Because we were the last group, we stood around for about an hour before we got to start.
Miles 1-3
Donald Duck finally told us to go, and we started off at a trot. I had heard that the Disney races have a lot of entertainment on the route, but I was still surprised that less than a mile into the race there was a marching band there to cheer us on! The first mile was VERY cold. I knew that I tend to overheat while running, so I didn't wear a lot of warm layers, but it took until Mile 2 for that internal heating to kick in. Meanwhile, lots of other people had worn layers intending to discard them when they got warmer, and at this point I was regretting not doing the same myself. We moved at a pretty slow pace, but I was impressed at this point that my sister was running at all. Around mile 3 the sun started to come up, and that was a vast improvement to me, at least psychologically.
Miles 3-7
For these miles, the sun was coming up, my body was warmed up, and we were making good progress. We ran through the parking lots of the Magic Kingdom, and the anticipation of reaching Main Street USA was very motivating. We stopped at Mile 4 to use the port-o-potties again, which in hindsight was not a great idea. This was the first "rest stop" in several miles, and there were LONG lines. After exiting the rest stop we could see the "balloon ladies" behind us and hustled quite a bit to put some space between ourselves and the sweepers. At this point we were alternating running and walking, but as long as we maintained a pace faster than 16 min/mile we wouldn't be swept.
When we finally DID get into the park, it was amazing. There were people out cheering, the decorations were beautiful, and having not been to Disney in 10+ years the scenery was amazing to me. The park really flew by, and was by far the best part of the run.
Once we exited the park, there was a DJ at the 6.6 mile marker to tell us we were halfway done! This, however, was the last really interesting thing we saw for quite a while.
Miles 8-11
These miles were pretty boring. It was highway running, with not a lot of interesting scenery as a distraction. At this point I noticed different parts of my body piping up with complaints. My right hip was feeling stiff, my left ankle was whining about the length of the run, and I was pretty sure I had a blister on every single one of my toes. We were still alternating running and walking, and around this point we passed the 3:30 pace group which meant we didn't really need to worry about being swept any longer. Around this point I also started taking Powerade from the water stations instead of just water. I don't usually like Powerade, but this stuff was the best I'd ever had. Or I needed electrolytes and sugar. I also ate a pack of Gatorade chews, in part because I had practiced fueling at this distance, and in part because trying to chew and run at the same time was a pleasant distraction from the growing list of lower-body aches I was feeling.
At Mile 10 a Team In Training coach came and ran with us, and told us what the rest of the course was like. 3 more miles...one uphill over an overpass, and two fairly flat miles into the park and through the finish. This was great to hear!
Going up the ramp to the overpass was not so much fun, but in the middle of the ramp there was another "Character stop." This one was one of the green army men from Toy Story, and he was barking like a drill sergeant telling people to get up the hill! I really enjoyed that for motivation, and before we knew it we were at the top of the hill
Miles 12-13.1
Before running into the park, we ran beside the road leaving the park. There were lots of honks and waves from cars on the road...presumably other runners who were on the way out! When we entered the park, there were tons of spectators standing around, and people kept cheering "You're almost done!" The spectators included my step mother and step brothers, which was really nice.
We all finished together as a team in under 3:30.

Post-race

Crossing the finish line was bittersweet for me...I was glad that we were able to all three stick together for the whole race, but at the same time I felt like I had SO MUCH left in the tank and could have done SO MUCH better if I'd run my own race.
Post race we got our mylar blankets, our bananas, and our snack boxes. We took some pictures and ate some snacks and picked up our checked bags and put on some warmer clothes before meeting up with the rest of our family. Once we had replenished our salt and sugar, we hopped in the car to drive back to our hotel for a well-deserved nap.
Now it's on to picking a couple more races for 2018! I have already registered for the Cherry Blossom 10-miler in April, and am looking to run another half marathon in the spring and (hopefully!) the Marine Corps Marathon in the fall. I am looking forward to running my own race next time and really seeing what I can do!

2017.06.12 18:55 jjrreett Engineering computer

I need a computer for college. I was looking at laptops:
https://www.reddit.com/SuggestALaptop/comments/6gorw7/workstation_for_engineers/?st=J3UCKPVM&sh=04622088
But somebody told me to split my budget for a PC and a cheep laptop. I don't know my way around parts, can I beat some of those recommend laptops for less.
**What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using?
CAD and simulations
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
600$
*When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
ASAP
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Orlando FL. No
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I'll worry about peripherals later. No
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
No
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I want a fast startup. Otherwise I want speed. I do dabble in deep learning so open CL and cuda would be nice. But I usually work in the cloud.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
A piece of wood
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yes. I like windows 7 but is that out of date. If so 10 is fine. Is pro worth it.
I don't care about looks. Just performance. Can we keep the budget low.

  • Sweet Grass Dairy (Thomasville): Gulf Coast Dinner. “We are bringing the colorful flavors of the Gulf Coast to Thomasville, GA. The culinary influence of the early French settlers was most prevalent along the Gulf Coast where the fish and seafood dishes continue to have a strong French influence. We want to highlight the diversity of flavors and prepare them with the freshest seafood and produce we can find. We have paired these flavors with crisp wines from Austria. The grower Terry Theise has been a wine importer and writer for thirty years. A decade and a half ago his love of honest and compelling wines from small growers brought him to Champagne. Terry assembled a portfolio of Grower Champagnes – a category that then hardly existed – and it remains today without equal. Terry’s approach is vastly divergent from that of many of his colleagues. The growers he works with and the wines he selects must speak to something genuine and real beyond their basic flavor. His wines have in common a distinct character, a point of view, vitality, and a voice. They express the land, the grower, and the time in which they were made. These wines convey to the drinker a sense of beauty, harmony, meaning, and above all pleasure.” 6:30pm
  • Civic Center: Artopia 2016. “Artopia is a charity art fundraising event that benefits Big Bend Cares.

As a matter of fact, there’s just about something for everyone—beautiful art at a reasonable price—in just about every form you can think of! Last year Artopia featured more than 300 pieces of original artwork, including oils, pastels, acrylics, photography, scenography, sculpture, pottery, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, mixed-media and much, much more.
