Spent the christmas holidays porting Joux Plane track from Richard Burns Rally to Assetto Corsa early access:
here, you need Richard Burns Rally to play it.

On my trip to Orlando I had time only for this geocache, and even it was a virtual one. Well worth it though.
From “Wings over Orlando” (GC4F78), located near the Orlando international airport.
Gliding season has ended for this year, I didn’t manage to get my license yet due to some delays with getting the medical certificate. I could not do solo flights until I got the medical, so they will have to wait until next year.
I did manage a total of over 30 hours in the air, max. altitude ~2200m and longest flight of just short of 4 hours.
Here is a video of some flying, captured with the Mobius Action Camera:
Had a chance to test the Oculus Rift, along with D-Box. The combination doesn’t work great due to the seat motion causing the Oculus head tracking to go out of whack sometimes, but it is likely solvable with software.
This was done in Richard Burns Rally with a quickly slapped together Oculus “hack” for it as I could not get any existing solutions working. It did full stereo rendering with Oculus distortion + partial head tracking (It worked ok as long as you didn’t look too much to the sides)
Geocaching is at its best when it takes you to some awesome location you would never have though to visit otherwise. Here’s a few recent examples of mine:
Never finished & abandoned aircraft hangar at Halli (GCYQJ6):
Abandoned underground structure near Jyväskylä (Mystery cache):
Abandoned house, this one is quite close to where I live:
Lookout tower at Karttula (GC2D63Q):
Rising in a thermal…
Tested visualizing the GPS track created by the FLARM system on the DG-505 Orion. Done with GPS Visualizer & Google Earth.
Weather was pretty good during this flight!
