Das war mal ein richtiger dicker Brocken direkt nach dem Ruhetag: Eine ultraschnelle Prüfung mit viel heikler Navigation und dichtem Staub fordert das Dakar-Feld aufs Äußerste. Schon auf der morgendlichen Fahrt vom Biwak zum Start der Sonderprüfung gibt's den ersten Unfall aus dem Feld der Vorderleute bei den Motorradlern. Der Sturz von Daniel Sanders löst eine Kettenreaktion aus, die auch Mitfavorit Matthias Walkner aus dem Rhythmus kegelt. Wie und warum – das erklärt der Österreicher bei einer Schalte direkt ins KTM-Biwak. Auch der entthronte Spitzenreiter Sam Sunderland kommt zu Wort. Bei den Autos kann Sébastien Loeb eine Winzigkeit vom Vorsprung des führenden Katari Nasser Al-Attiyah abknabbern. Der allerdings nimmt's in dieser Episode von Daily Dakar – der Podcastreihe der Zeitschrift PITWALK – mit Fassung. Giniel de Villiers ist wegen technischer Probleme der große Verlierer des Tages – er schildert gemeinsam mit seinem Retter Henk Lategan genau, was in der offenen Wüste alles schiefgelaufen ist. Auch der deutsche Privatfahrer Daniel Schröder wird arg gebeutelt, zieht sich aber mit Reparaturarbeiten selbst wieder aus dem Schlamassel. In der Side-by-Side-Prototypenwertung schlussfolgert Beifahrer Dennis Zenz, er brauche jetzt dringend wieder einen Ruhetag. Und auch Annett Fischer berichtet entkräftet von ihrem langen Tag und der einbrechenden Dunkelheit.

This means owners did not have the chance to experience an OTA update up until now. You see their excitement when they finally got one and we must say we are impressed this came in sooner than expected. It is not a big update by any means, but one meant to iron out some bugs here and there, just to make things smoother onboard the R1T and R1S. - The update procedure was documented by the user “Iwantatesla” in Rivian Forums, who also mentioned everything seems “much snappier” after the update. - the update covers things from Bluetooth connectivity to the improved Navigation app. Various user interface refinements were also on the menu, with smoother transitions between apps as well as improvements to the infotainment system's performance.

The power output of the Megachargers was reported to be a whopping 1.5 MW as well - Perhaps the most exciting factor about the Semi's reported deliveries this month, however, would be the vehicle's batteries.

Es ist der Tag der Überraschten: Auf der fünften Etappe der Rallye Dakar kommen die Tagesschnellsten bei den Autos, Motorrädern und Side-by-Side-Prototypen wie die Jungfrau zum Kinde zu ihren Etappensiegen. Toyota-Pilot Henk Lategan und SSV-Beifahrer Dennis Zenz erzählen von ihren unfassbaren Fahrten an die Spitze, Matthias Walkner berichtet von einem turbulenten Tag in der Bike-Wertung. Erstmals starten Autos, Side-by-Sides und Lkw auf der einen sowie Motorräder und Quads auf der anderen Seite auf zwei völlig getrennt voneinander liegenden und abgesteckten Schleifen, begegnen sich den ganzen Tag über nicht. Was das für Besonderheiten bei der Navigation für die Automobilisten nach sich zieht, erläutert Timo Gottschalk aus seinem X-Raid-Buggy. Aber auch die Privatiers haben viel zu erzählen. SSV-Fahrerin Annett Fischer erlebte bereits auf der vierten Etappe eine Tortour mit Schlamm, Ausgrabungsarbeiten und diversen Abschleppversuchen kreuz und quer durch die Wüste. Daniel Schröder nimmt sich heute besonders in acht, Mike Wiedemann erlebt einen Rückschlag – die Hamburger Gebrüder Stephan und Thomas Preuß haben dagegen wieder Oberwasser. Sie alle erzählen am Mikro von PITWALK-Chefredakteur Norbert Ockenga ihre mitreißenden Geschichten von einem erneut langen und taffen Dakar-Tag.

1740: Delaware River freezes over

During Colonial times, Philadelphia was one of the major ports in North America. Lying at the confluence of the mighty Delaware river and the smaller Schuylkill river it carried a significant amount of commerce back and forth from Europe to the New World. The Delaware River was deep enough for most of the huge sailing ships of the day to connect right up the docks and easily load or off-load their cargo. Navigation was usually clear from the Atlantic ocean to the great port. Unlike present day, the presence of some ice on the river could lead to a slowing of the ability of ships to navigate any ice fields on the river. Unlike today if bitter cold struck there was no way to break the ice and the wooden ships hulls were vulnerable to damage and even ships sinking from significant ice. When the river froze over solid commerce stopped. January 2 was a day of great activity in the Port of Philadelphia in these times gone by after Christmas and New year's Day, but it came to pass that on January 2, 1740 the Delaware became completely frozen over and shipping came to a halt for the winter.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Tatsächlich ist der Absatz portabler Navigationsgeräte inzwischen um 80 Prozent zurückgegangen, aber TomTom hat sein Geschäft umgestellt und profitiert dabei ausgerechnet von der Kernkompetenz des Routings: der digitalen Karte. Mit der allein ist heute kein Staat mehr zu machen. Aber Zusatzservices bringen den meisten Mehrwert und den größten Umsatz.

Avalanches killed 37 people in the U.S. last winter, making it the most deadly season in modern history. Why was 2020-2021 so dangerous, and how can we avoid avalanches this winter? Get the answers to these burning questions in our new winter safety series, dropping on the Out and Back podcast today.In this four-part series, avalanche forecasters expose the factors that played into last season's tragic fatalities. Tune in to hear the details of one of the most chilling avalanche accidents in Utah's history. Learn how seasoned ski mountaineers make the tough decision to turn around in the mountains. And let a national avalanche expert walk you through the best way to read an avalanche forecast so you can be as prepared as possible on your next adventure.Listen to all four binge-worthy episodes at once, or pick them up in a random order. However you listen — don't delay. Each episode gives you real, actionable insights that you can put to use in your next winter adventure.Episode 43: How Last Winter Became the Deadliest Avalanche Season of All TimeLast winter was nothing short of a perfect storm. A dangerously weak snowpack plagued the entire nation. At the same time, people were hungrier than ever for fresh air and fun. This deadly combination clouded people's judgment and put them at greater risk, says Ethan Greene, Director of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. “Part of what we saw last year, I think, was that we were all living in a difficult environment,” Greene says. “And that made it hard going to the grocery store. It made it hard going to school. It made work hard. And when we had time away from those stresses and got to go into the mountains, it made making decisions in avalanche terrain difficult.” The unusual circumstances also brought with it surprising demographics. Greene distills the statistics to tell us what age group, gender, and experience level was most at-risk for getting caught in an avalanche. The answers may surprise you. Plus, Greene takes a look at the way conditions are stacking up for this season. Don't get your hopes up. This season could be shaping up to be just as dangerous as the last.Episode 44: Lessons from Utah's Wilson Glade AvalancheLast February, two separate backcountry ski parties headed out for what they thought was lower-angle, safer terrain in the Wilson Glade area of Utah's Wasatch Mountains. The avalanche risk was high that day but they were prepared. Both groups studied the avalanche forecast, made conservative travel plans, and carried all the right safety gear into the mountains. But, precautions aside, the two parties were swept away in a colossal slide. Four of eight people died. What went wrong?Avalanche Forecaster Nikki Champion of the Utah Avalanche Center, investigated the accident. She gives her best insights on the lessons that can be gleaned from this tragic incident.“I think this accident really hit home with a lot of backcountry users,” Champion says. “Because it was a lot of decisions that most of us could see ourselves making: being in lower-angle terrain, traveling one at a time, skiing the slope multiple times and not seeing any obvious red flags in that area.”Champion walks us through what we can learn from this tragic accident. Learn about how to spot and avoid connected terrain. Become more aware of uphill travel. Hear how one survivor's quick thinking and rescue skills saved the lives of others.Episode 45: How to Avoid Summit Fever with Ski Mountaineers Luke Smithwick and Iain KuoIn the fall of 2021, ski mountaineers Luke Smithwick and Iain Kuo attempted an unsupported, first ski descent of the world's seventh tallest peak — Mount Dhualagiri in Nepal. They spent weeks advancing to the mountain's 26,795-foot summit, but high winds and increasing avalanche danger held them back from the top. After months of planning and training, Smithwick and Kuo were forced to retreat, leaving the ski record on the table for another day. The decision to turn around didn't come easy for Smithwick and Kuo. But sticking with an objective mindset helped them come to the right conclusion. Their number one tip? Erase any assumption of how things will play out. “I have zero expectations going into the mountains,” Smithwick says. “I'm like, wow, the car started, we're leaving town. Great. Let's celebrate that. Okay guys, everyone celebrate.”Smithwick and Kuo review the decision to call it quits just shy of Dhualagiri's unusually harsh and exposed summit. They check their decision-making process and their egos against the popular FACETS acronym that is widely taught in Avalanche 1 courses. Tune in to this conversation to learn where Smithwick and Kuo nailed the human factors, along with a few vulnerabilities that they work to keep in check. Episode 46: How to Read the Avalanche ForecastChecking the avalanche forecast should be at the top of your safety checklist. It predicts the avalanche danger for your favorite zones and gives you a heads up on worrisome problems within the snowpack. But how much stock can you really put into the daily avy forecast report? US Forest Service avalanche expert Simon Trautman says avalanche forecasts should be the building block for planning a safe day in the backcountry. However, once your feet are on the snow the forecast always takes a back seat to your observations in the field, Trautman says. “The whole point behind the avalanche forecast is that they're a starting point for your daily planning,” Trautman says. “But people need to understand that what they're doing is providing an expert's idea of a pattern that exists across the landscape. They're great resources but it's kind of like a weather forecast. If you get out there and it said 'no rain' and it starts raining on you, you need to reassess and you need to figure out what that means for your plan that day. Do you just continue to have your picnic or do you change plans?” Tune in as Trautman dissects the avalanche forecast into manageable sections. He teaches us the first things to look at and how to get the most out of the avalanche forecast when planning your next tour.Episode 20: Avalanche Safety Tips with Bruce TremperIf you need more ammo in your avalanche safety arsenal, go back and listen to Out and Back's episode 20 with renowned avalanche expert Bruce Tremper. Author of Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain and Avalanche Essentials, Tremper draws on his 30-plus year career in snow science to give us his masterful tips for avoiding avalanches. His advice is pretty simple: stick to low-angle terrain.“Whenever there is uncertainty in the snowpack, the terrain is always the answer,” Tremper says. “You can cut your risk in half from going from 39 degrees down to 34 degrees. And you can cut your risk in half once again by going from 34 degrees down to 30 degrees. The handiest tool that you can use in all the world of avalanches is slope steepness.”Learn Tremper's low risk safety ritual and get some advice on what to do if the unthinkable happens and you get caught in an avalanche.Episode 21: Buried Alive — Bruce Tremper Tells His StoryIt's almost impossible to grasp the power and force of avalanches, unless of course you've actually been caught in one. Avalanche expert Bruce Tremper brings us a little closer to that experience with his story about how he triggered — and was buried in — an avalanche in Montana. He describes the feeling of having the “rug pulled out” from under his skis, being swept down the steep mountain, and what it felt like when the avalanche finally roared to a stop.

A dangerously weak snowpack plagued the entire nation. At the same time, people were hungrier than ever for fresh air and fun. This deadly combination clouded people's judgment and put them at greater risk, says Ethan Greene, Director of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. “Part of what we saw last year, I think, was that we were all living in a difficult environment,” Greene says. “And that made it hard going to the grocery store. It made it hard going to school. It made work hard. And when we had time away from those stresses and got to go into the mountains, it made making decisions in avalanche terrain difficult.” The unusual circumstances also brought with it surprising demographics. Greene distills the statistics to tell us what age group, gender, and experience level was most at-risk for getting caught in an avalanche.

Lots of kids look to the stars and think to themselves that someday they'd like to be among them. When asked about their dream career, many enthusiastically offer up, “I want to be an astronaut.” But few actually pursue this path and even less get close to achieving it. Then for those that nearly reach that goal as adults but don't end up as astronauts, it's more rare for those few to take that passion and find another way to channel it toward working in the space industry. At five years old, Luca Rossettini began pursuing his passion and he's never stopped. Today, he is CEO and Founder of D-Orbit, and his company provides space logistics and orbital transportation. On this episode of Future of Tech, Luca shares how his childhood passion has led to his current career and offers encouragement to the next generation. He discusses why the conditions are right for a rapid increase in the amount of space satellites, and he reveals that the future involves building logistical infrastructure in space. Enjoy this episode! Main Takeaways: Going up To Bring Data Back: There's a tremendous amount of data in space that can help life on Earth. All this data is a lurer for organizations to want to have satellites in space. As satellites have become more affordable and cloud technology has allowed for much greater data storage, businesses now have the ability to receive that data and bring it back to Earth Space Scalability: In an obvious way, space has a great deal of untapped potential. It's vast and ripe for exploration and opportunity. But another way to look at it is about how  a satellite presence in space can assist companies scale on Earth. For instance, satellites can help companies broaden their reach from a localized region to the entire world.  A Constellation of Satellites: Traditional satellites were huge, expensive, and only governments had the capacity to develop them, launch them, and then transport them exactly where they needed to be. Now, satellites are much smaller, relatively less expensive, and companies are able to get them to space. In terms of development, deployment, and maintenance, it's more accurate to consider the current state of satellites as constellations made up of many smallers stars rather than just a few supergiants. Space Infrastructure: Currently, space logistics occur mostly in the space to Earth arena. This makes sense because a majority of the infrastructure is on Earth. Eventually, logistics will evolve to be more of a space to space operation. When space infrastructure is further developed, manufacturing and recycling can then happen in space. --- Future of Tech is brought to you by Amdocs Tech.

Before Mac of Halfway Anywhere thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013, he struggled to find useful information about the trail. Sure, he read anecdotal thru-hiking accounts. But what worked for one person might not work for him. Mac wanted data. So after completing the trail that year, Mac started a PCT survey to gather that data for himself. The results both somewhat dismayed him while at the same time, proved quite useful. For example, one of Mac's many findings suggested that hikers wildly underestimate how much a thru-hike costs. In fact, underestimating thru-hike finances proves to be one of the primary reasons people abandon their hike.After Mac thru-hiked the Continental Divide Trail in 2017, he started a survey for that trail as well. Surprising to many, the CDT mostly sticks to well-defined trail. But unlike other long trails, the CDT provides numerous “alternates” that hikers can take to supplement or supplant the official route. Mac was able to get surprising figures about these "alternates" as well as tons of other useful data for future CDT thru-hikers. On today's episode of Out and Back, Mac weaves his eight years of survey data together with his first hand observations to illuminate how the PCT and CDT have evolved over the past decade. Hint: he doesn't think it's all been for the better. He also dishes out his controversial view of trail angels and trail magic. Plus, Mac explains why he hates the word “tramly” (aka “trail family). Finally, you may have noticed the elephant in the room: Mac has not thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and does not conduct an AT survey. In fact, Mac swears he will never hike the east's longest trail. He explains why he feels this way...and of course...Shanty will try and change Mac's mind about it...A self-proclaimed random guy on the internet, Mac has no proven validity to his findings. But he's here to help prospective thru-hikers actually glean information that will be useful in their monumental undertaking. Mac may not be a scientist, but he thinks with the precision of one, constantly trying to refine and improve the surveys with each iteration. If you're planning on thru-hiking the PCT or the CDT next year, sign up to take the survey when it becomes available. Comb through the vast PCT and CDT survey data on Mac's website, Halfway Anywhere. You'll also find all types of useful insight and analysis, including gear guides for both the PCT and CDT. Sign up for Mac's newsletter, and follow Mac's adventures on Instagram.
