Time-lapse Rig Unpacking

I created a time-lapse lapse of us unpacking at Ocotillo Wells.  For my first stab at a film of this type, it came out pretty good.  I hope you enjoy it.

Germany Trip

by Rob Teegarden 21. March 2009 14:12

I took a trip over to Munich, Germany for Carl Zeiss MicroImaging in the beginning of March.  I went over with my colleague Aaron Brown for 10 days.  We had some free time at night and on the weekends to tour around.  We definitely drank too much beer and had our fill of Bavarian food while we were there.  There were some pretty good sites to see around Munich, with the highlights being the Beer and Brewery tour we went on.  We learned all sorts of things about the history of beer.  One of the tidbits was the Bavarian "Reinheitsgebot" (Purity Law), the oldest and still valid food law, which meant the birth of modern beer.  It would have been great to have been here during summer to enjoy the outdoor beer gardens, but none the less it was still fun.

Ocotillo Wells Thanksgiving 2008

by Rob Teegarden 2. December 2008 09:37

We had our 4th annual Thanksgiving trip to Ocotillo Wells this year.  The weather was perfect!  It rained quite a bit before we got there so it was a little muddy setting up camp, but it kept the dust down for the next couple of days and made riding the washes a blast with all the wet sand.  We fried up 3 turkeys, 2 of them were cold smoked before frying which just adds to the flavor.  We took the whole gang on a ride to the Travertine Grill in Salton City for lunch on Friday.  The kids spent a lot of time jumping right by our camp.  All in all it was a wonderful trip spent with family and friends.

Johnson Valley OHV Halloween 2008

by Rob Teegarden 3. November 2008 09:29

These pictures are from our first trip to the desert this season.  We ended up going to Johnson Valley because the weather was too hot in Ocotillo Wells.  Since we were out there on Halloween the kids carved pumpkins and the girls all dressed up.  They even went from trailer to trailer trick or treating.  We had a good first trip!

Bounce Networks

by Rob Teegarden 29. October 2008 08:49

Gerry Campbell recently made a post about Bounce Networks a company he and Mike Rubin started.  There was a group of individuals who got invlolved with seeing if we could bring this company to light and figure out what it would take to do it.  Back in the beginning of 2001 Gerry contacted me to see if I wanted to be part of the process.  I was living in England at the time, but flew out for a few days to throw around some ideas with the team.  We spent a few days in the garage at Mike Rubin's house going over all sorts of ideas.  It was a great group of minds coming together, unfortunatley we were just to early to the market.

Lassiter High School 20th Year Reunion – Class of ‘88

by Rob Teegarden 9. October 2008 09:31

Lanie and I went back to Atlanta the last weekend of September for my 20th reunion.  The crew has been planning this for several months and it turned out better than expected.  We had 8 show up along with their significant others, but unfortunately we had a man down – Barrett Simmons, MIA.

We got into town Thursday afternoon and stayed at Scott and Allison’s.  We saw Todd and PJ and little Delavie (Allison) for a bit, then we went to dinner with Tim, Dawn and Zach as well as Frog - he had no gas to sell ;).  We went back to the house and watched USC lose to Oregon State, much to Allison’s pleasure.

Colton's Soccer Game

by Rob Teegarden 15. September 2008 07:30

Colton had a soccer game Saturday and he played great!  It was the best I have ever seen him play.  Colton was always hustling for the ball, had at least 3 shots on goal and played great defense too.  He was really burning it up out there.  He would have had an assist, but the goal was taken away due to an offsides call.  His throw ins looked awesome!  These are the first shots I have taken with Red Nan's D100 and they came out pretty well.  Looking forward to the next game.

Nikon D100 Firmware

by Rob Teegarden 8. September 2008 14:29

I borrowed my Mother-in-law's Nikon D100 Camera, and did some research on it.  I found out I should upgrade the firmware from v1.01 to v2.0, but found out you have to send it in to service to get it done Yell

Since I didn't want to send it in to service, I searched high and low and could not find it anywhere.  I ran across this forum which had a bunch of people being requesting to have the firmware sent to them.  After sending a few emails I got someone to send it my way and I am attaching to this blog so others can download.  In the zip file is the addendum to the manual as well.

Colton and the Wikipedia

by Rob Teegarden 30. April 2008 19:50

I am sure all of you have heard about kids getting a little out of control on the Internet.  Well, I can vouch for them needing to be watched like a hawk.  My son Colton, who is only 10 years old, took it upon himself to modify the Wikipedia entry for 'Colton, California'.  he thought it would be good to add the entry 'Colton Teegarden (1997-?) - Colton's last city-marshal ' under Famous Residents.  I can assure you my son Colton was never the city-marshal.  Luckily someone else has figured this out too, and removed the entry.  I did capture a screen shot before it was corrected.
