Well, actually the battery pack does whenever it gets cold. I went for a ride this lovely, sunny morning, but it is recorded for posterity only in my brain. And don't count on it being there long.
I don't know if the battery pack is really dying, or if it just doesn't like the cold. It works OK in the house, but after the camera is outside for even a little while the battery pack fails. I guess I need to keep it warmer.
I bought a helmet mirror yesterday at a nearby general sporting goods store. I mounted it this morning before the ride, and I was impressed how well I could see out of that dime-sized piece of reflective plastic. Will try to post a photo after my camera battery is warmed up and recharged.
On the weight front, I've lost 31 pounds since Oct 1. Only 12 more pounds to my goal! I gained a pound last week after being off at a conference for three days. Lots of "regular" food and beer, although I was able to moderate my consumption.
We've gotten some snow last week, and wind yesterday, so the roads are so-so. But it was good to get out anyway, especially while everyone was in church (although the churches I passed didn't look too full).
