Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Two purchasesIn the last week, I've made two purchases...
Noisebuster Extreme headphones use some sort of noise canceling to reduce background noise. They're useful for reducing the constant noise of an airplane, making flying a bit less unpleasant.
In the winter, I do some biking on a trainer I've got in my basement; the Noisebusters should make training a bit nicer. The trainer makes a bit of a roar. We've got a TV in the basement that I can watch, but it is hard to hear when you're riding. The noisebusters cut down on the roar of the trainer and make it easier to listen to the TV.
The Beckie Scott CD is a fund raiser for a Canadian cross-country skier. I like cross-country skiing, I'm impressed with how strong Scott is, and I liked the idea of supporting an athlete in a sponsor-poor sport. So, I pulled out my credit card and bought a copy of the CD. I haven't spent much time with the CD, but what I've seen of it looks good. It includes some video and interviews with Scott as well as a decent collection of photos and text.
