Next week I’ll be heading to Penang, Malaysia, and to Singapore, along with @carrieseltzer, @Aztekium, and others, to meet with iNatters, researchers, and others in the region. However, I’m leaving San Francisco the night of January 13th and will arrive in Singapore the morning of January 15th, meaning I’ll miss the calendar date of January 14th entirely, breaking my (currently not very long) #DailyiNat streak of one verifiable observation a day! Quite the conundrum.
Actually, I don’t care too much about it, and I’ll just restart the streak on Jan 15th. But, for argument’s and silliness’s’ sake, hypothetically, how could I keep the streak alive, and what would be acceptable?
Two possible solutions I’ve come up with:
When I land in Singapore, make an observation but change the observation’s date, time, and time zone to California time, which should still be January 14th.
On the airplane, once it’s January 14th on my phone, look for an old spiderweb or dead fly or something and make an observation of it.
Anything else? Would either of these be acceptable?
