I can’t say I am surprised. This is an outlandish extravaganza — though there are a lot of folks out there who could easily afford it. But, to be honest I don’t see why it would be compelling and that comes from a man who traded in his MARQ Expedition for a second Garmin Fenix 6, albeit the second in Titanium.

Would love to know how many Garmin has really sold. Garmin made it very clear that they were targeting it for Christmas. Well, Christmas has come and gone.

Well, I guess they still have two other opportunities: Chinese New Year and, of course, Valentine’s. Hence, I will keep on checking over the next couple of weeks and keep you posted. Would be a hoot if they do sell all 100 by Valentine’s.

Keep fingers crossed. SMILE.

I do keep track of my Activity Trackers.

Making Tracks On Virgin Snow Across A Frozen Pond In Alton, N.H. — Temp. -12C (10F).

So, why didn’t I walk all the way to the island? Good question. That, of course, was the plan. Explore the island. I have never been to it — Summer or Winter. This is not a pond that I have explored though I drive or walk by it often. It is in Town — not close to home and my daily hikes. This was the first time I had ventured onto it. As you can see there were no other tracks since the snowstorm 3-days ago. That makes me cautious. Don’t want to fall through the ice again. There is a river on the other side of the road and I wasn’t sure if there was any moving water below the ice. Moving water isn’t good. Well, as I got to the island I ran into mush — water above the ice. Not good. The ice was probably thick enough but I was not in the mood to get my feet wet. So, that is the full story.

The short hike across the pond was but a diversion on a longer walk — most of it close to water. I was waiting for somebody to finish some testing at school. So, I only had, at most, 1.5 hours. I was timing myself. Did good. Timed it to 5-minutes. It all worked out. She was ready to be picked up. I did close to 4-miles. I topped it up and got my 10K steps for the morning when we got home. Nice walk. I enjoyed it.
