Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Favorite O' gearWithout a doubt, my favorite piece of O' gear is my 17-year-old Silva headlamp.
Cool baseball web page
There are at least a couple of orienteers who read this page and are baseball fans. They might want to check out the www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/ for a huge database of box scores and play-by-play data. The detail is amazing. Did you know, for example, that on June 25, 2006, in the first inning, David DeJesus of the Kansas City Royals stuck out swinging on a full count? That's the kind of detail that you can easily find in the baseball-reference database. posted by Michael | 8:08 PM
Do you have your original batteries? How many times have you replaced them? Any other maintenance?
I'm on my third battery. I'm using seal lead acid batteries (rather than the newer, lighter NiMH). The SLA batteries are heavy, but cheap. I paid something like $15 for the battery.Post a Comment
I haven't done any maintenance. I'm curious about how long it'll take before a bulb dies.
Actually, I have done one bit of maintenance, I replaced the battery holder/carrier once.
