All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. True for people, and I like to think it’s true for my trusty Garmin as well. I got some funny comments when I posted one of my Garmin maps from a recent fishing trip, and it got me thinking. I just assumed that most folks with a 305 strap that monster on their wrist and record random outings or paths completely unrelated to their training. I honestly assume that’s not the case, but if I can convince myself of this then I feel like less of a tool, and my wife is less justified in rolling her eyes at me when I bring it to random locations.
I like to think that my Garmin needs an occasional break from splits and paces, and needs a chance to take the pixels out for some R&R. For example:
This was from a swimming/tubing outing a couple weeks back, when we loaded up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster and headed to Nags Head for the July 4th weekend.
My wife got me the Garmin last fall just before my father, brother-in-law, and I headed out for a (most likely, but hopefully not) once-in-a-lifetime fishing trip on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Here’s the flight from Anchorage to Kodiak:
Here’s the Garmin out trying to catch some king salmon off the Alaska coast. Sadly no kings were caught that day.
