Oktoberfest 2011

It’s been years since we last journied south to Mt. Angel for the Oktoberfest celebration. Yesterday, my parents, sister and the family all piled in to a van, took some back roads, and took in some Oktoberfest celebrations. We missed the wiener dog races, but the girls loved the petting zoo, pony ride and hay maze. The rest of us enjoyed the food and Spaten.

Geographic Midpoint

I was trying to figure out the most geographicly convenient place to have an off-site staff meeting and got distracted trying to find the temporally adjusted geographic midpoint for my life. GeoMidPoint gives you a nice Google maps API interface to add locations and time spent to calculate. I’ve been moving west consistently since I was born, and it appears that the geographic midpoint, weighted by time, is in the Salmon River north of White Bird, Idaho.
