[Dream] Build and Program an Arduino Project [Living It]

“ARDUINO IS AN OPEN-SOURCE ELECTRONICS PROTOTYPING PLATFORM BASED ON FLEXIBLE, EASY-TO-USE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE. IT’S INTENDED FOR ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, HOBBYISTS AND ANYONE INTERESTED IN CREATING INTERACTIVE OBJECTS OR ENVIRONMENTS.”

There’s a ton of cool and useful things you can do with an Arduino. People have made robots, climate controls and even a Rosary to automate your prayers. Potential projects for me include a Time Lapse Dolly, maybe as a windlass control on a boat or you know, actually, I don’t even know what all an Arduino can do. 
Learn, Learn, Learn.

Update #1

I finally bought an Arduino board and some breadboard goodies. I’m putting together a little work area and digging out all my little electronic doodads that I’ve collected thru the years. I have a trainer from when I went to PTI for Electronics. It has a power supply and breadboard, so that’ll be key in my experimentation.

[Dream] To travel The Great Loop

 The extended Tom & Huck Mississippi float.
A couple of years ago I read a Journal by Guy Haglund that detailed a canoe float from the headwaters of The Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. I was hooked with the notion, with the adventure of the trip. I’ve since read a dozen journals of similar sorts and discovered The Great Loop during the search. It seems that most of the people that do The Great Loop trip are well-off retires blowing their grandkids inheritance.

To Be Continued. .
