Welcome to Atterberry.net! I’ve had a lot of hobbies, including building things, playing music, RC planes, recumbent bicycles, kayaking, camping, geocaching, video editing, programming and robotics. Head over to my Projects page and you might find something that interests you.
Today at the pinewood derby our boy scout troop held, my son’s car was by far the fastest. Probably because we disregarded all the rules. If you’d like to make a motorized pinewood derby car for an unlimited class race, take a look!
The kids on the Lego team love to play “Among Us”, the multiplayer mobile game in which you perform tasks and determine who is your crewmate and who is an imposter. So we developed a real-life game to play as a teamwork activity. Check out our rules!
Just in time for Halloween, I recorded a song with my kids and the lego team. Enjoy!
I’ve been into RC planes for many years, but I crash more often than I’d like. I recently bought an FT Aura 5 flight controller from FliteTest, and I got it working with my FlySky radio system. Here’s my writeup!
Even though I’ve added some content, I haven’t actually “posted” to this site since 2011. In the past I created a static “page” for anything interesting I put here, then a simple “post” to draw attention to it. A “post” has a date associated, and is the basis for a “blog”, which this site really isn’t anymore.
Anyway, since I’ve been adding stuff, I might as well create a post to lead you to it. Cub scout pinewood derby time is upon us again, so I’ve put up some information about the cars my kids and I have made. Take a look at the project page!
One thing Geocaching.com doesn’t make easy is finding the location of archived caches. I grabbed my whole history of pocket query files (back to April 2004) and built a GPX file containing all archive caches I could get my hands on. The map below shows up to 50 miles from Peoria, but my data is most complete within 30 miles of Peoria.
