Forecast: Mostly Sunny, High of 81

It was long but I got here. I left last night around 8pm and arrived in sunny Daytona Beach this morning at around 10:30. The time actually went pretty quickly while rocking out to music all night. (90% of it was Dave Matthews) And because I-95 is completely straight and flat, the trip was completely void of any excitement. I did manage to sneak in a pic of the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore.
Is it just me or does it seem like these power meter charts are getting way out of hand. Is there really a point to posting a picture of some stupid lines that are meaningless to everyone except the person who's information is recorded on it? Even if there was a point, I find it hard to believe that anyone takes any time to look at it and determine what kind of fitness the person is. So many people are posting their stupid, complicated power charts that I'm starting to feel left out of the high-tech training loop. So to try to assimilate myself I created my own chart based on my driving performance of last night, which I feel was a solid block of training for the 12 and 24 hour races coming up this year. The Red line is speed, Blue is the reading on my fuel gauge (and consequently, the amount of $$ in my pocket), Green is the amount of Monster Energy Drink present in my blood stream, and the Brown dots represent two miscellaneous shooting stars that I saw.
Isn't that impressive?

haha, it looks like your heart rate (the red line) is peaked out, your speed (the blue line) is dropping over the ride, and your altitude (the green line) is showing some ups and down.......and the brown dots, well you must have dropped a couple pieces of chocolate on the chart.
