Tahoe Boating
June 27, 2018

As part of the Nelson Family Tahoe vacation, we spend today on the water fishing it up! My mom caught the first fish, and Tom and Micah also reeled in a fish - which was more than all the other boats out there because some unfavorable conditions (windy, afternoon, full moon, etc). Fun day with the family, doing something very different than my normal Wednesday :)

Tahoe Biking
June 24, 2018

I bike around Tahoe today. I was pooped out, but got a new personal record of 4:06 moving time, and 4:18 total time. My average speed was 17.5 miles per hour, which seems maybe too fast to believe haha. I'm don't feel in great shape either. Here's a link to my ride stats here

Floating
June 23, 2018

I decided to join in on the Rafting Gone Wild event this year. 100 degree temperatuers are just perfect to balance out the cold river water. That's me in the picture!

VBall

I'm still playing sand volleyball with a group of great people over here in Folsom from time to time. Good fun, all year long.

100 Miles
May 18, 2018

To motivate myself to start getting in shape for triathlon season, I made it a goal to run 100 miles in a month, which was from April 19 to May 18th. Mission Complete.

Dash Cam
May 7, 2018

I bought and installed a dash cam for my car today. It seems to be working fine, but my computer doesn't have a memory card reader, so I haven't confirmed for certain the recording is working correctly, but I have no reason to assume it isn't. There is a front camera and a back camera and my first attempt of the wiring was a failure because I used duct tape. My second attempt was much better because I shoved the wiring behing the wall/ceiling panel so it's snug and out of view as much as possible.

Track Workouts
April 30, 2018

A public high school in town got a new all-weather track and I've gone to a meetup group the past 2 Thursdays to join for a workout. I'm not as fast as I used to be, but it's fun to get a good workout in, and meet people, and do some different kind of exercises. I'll probably go again this week.

Avila Beach Weekend
April 14, 2018

Spend the weekend down in Avila Beach with my parents for the Cal Poly Open House (what was left of it haha), got in some running, biking, cribbage and splendor. I had not been to Avila Beach in a long time and may make another appearance again. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Apartment 3
April 6, 2018

Today I finished setting up my third apartment. It's located on T Street in Sacramento. I didn't move, I just furnished and am now subletting the unit. Typically a unit will bring close to $500/month, sometimes more, and require about 5 hours/month of work. I'm tracking my numbers, and I've hired cleaning help a few times, just experimenting right now. I'm comfortable with 3 units. I might just hold at 3 units for a while. I'd have to improve my systems more before going big time in this endeavour.

Tom Time

Tom and I went to see the Warriors vs. Kings game this evening. Thanks for the tickets Mom and Dad. Hoping the Warriors win it all this year, because it's obvious the Kings wont. Haha.

Hail Yea
February 26, 2018

Disneyland! It was cool to get out of town and do something different. I haven't been to Disneyland for a long time. Now I feel like making an annual trip down to Disneyland. I did the main Disneyland park one day and the newer California Adventure park the other day. Stayed in an AirBNB that was within walking distance and I didn't think the wait times or lines were that bad for a February weekend.

Retail Arbitrage
January 20, 2018

Hammers! Get your hammers! Corkboards! Get your corkboards! This night in January I went to the liquidation sale at the nearby Walmart and stocked up on items I thought could turn a profit when selling on Amazon. Nope! The corkboards made me some money, but it was worth a shot. Maybe again in the future if I have a privately labeled product.

Rug Doctor
January 13, 2018

Now that I've lived in my house for 5 years I figured it was time to power clean the carpets. I only have carpet in the bedrooms and I'm not really sure the rug doctor made much difference and I'm not really sure if I was using it correctly haha. I bought way too much soap. Anyone need rug doctor soap?
