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.
Ducted fan pinewood derby car
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!
Among Us Real World Teamwork Game
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!
Grim Grinning Ghosts
Just in time for Halloween, I recorded a song with my kids and the lego team. Enjoy!
FT Aura 5 Flight Controller
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!
New kayak trailer
I recently finished my kayak trailer, just in time for a campout.
I’ve included plans in case you’d like to build one like it. Take a look at the project page.
New stacker-type kayak storage rack
I have too many kayaks now to fit onto the original storage rack, so I made a new type. See my Kayak Stacker Storage Rack page.
100 Oldest Active Geocaches
Jeepster was kind enough to create a list of the 100 oldest active geocaches in the world. The following map is accurate as of March 4th, 2013.

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!
Archived Geocaches in Central IL
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.
