I tucked the Nook into the Pendle further and routed the cable under the saddle to get it out of the way. It all worked without a problem.
The Nook was charged at 37% when I started. After 30 minutes of steady riding it was up to 57%. I noticed that the cache battery was completely discharged, and that the “available charge LED” was only coming on intermittently. I suppose this means that the Nook was taking as much as the system could give, with no reserve.
At this point it was dusk, so I decided to un-hook the Nook and turn on the lights. I went exploring in Lower Allen Park, and then headed home along Brenneman Road.
We stared at each other for a few minutes, and then I made the first move. They weren’t even phased.
Later, coming in Siddonsburg Road, I caught a glimpse of a gray fox as he ran into a hedge row. Red foxes are pretty common in our area now, but gray foxes are pretty rare. He wouldn’t pose for a snap like the deer did, though.
