2023 Resolutions

Welcome to my New Year's Resolutions! I feel a little vulnerable sharing my goals publicly and auditing if I failed or succeeded over the year. 

My 2023 Resolutions


2) Upload to WiGLE every month

3) Post to the blog at least once a month

4) Continue to follow and maintain my vision board.

Don't judge me! I thought they were cheesy and weird, but it's been so effective. I made a blog post about it already, but just as a refresher my current board is below.

A vision board is almost a resolution list in of itself. These are all the things I want to achieve in the near future. 

5) Pass the HAM radio exam

6) Continue in content creation and make articles or a podcast

Let's go over what my resolutions where last year:

My 2022 Resolutions

1) Make it to 500,000 unique wifi networks

I made it in November! I achieved this goal and obtained the gold WiGLE badge. 

2) Upload to WiGLE every month

I made this most months, but not every month. I will try again!

3) Wardrive in a state that is not: Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky or Missouri

Okay technically I wardrove in Florida, but I was there for a business trip, not specifically for wardriving, so I don't know if this counts.

4) Continue to see the trainer once a week

My first trainer quit, and I had an awesome trainer for a few months, but then she got fired/quit. It's not the reason I stopped going, but it's the reason I haven't gone back to training. I feel like I'll just handle my fitness on my own. 

6) Post to the blog at least once a month

I nowhere near achieved this goal this year. I will acknowledge I've been posting more frequently since the fall, but for the entire summer I did not post. This will definitely be a goal that I'm carrying into the new year. 

7) I want to be a better person this year than I was last year.

My therapist says I've grown as a person, so that's an approval, yeah? But all jokes aside, I believe I have become at least a shade better than I was in the previous year.

How to Wardrive: Know where to go

Inspired by others, and my goal of getting a golden WiGLE badge, I went wardriving for my birthday. I was hoping for 50k, and I ended up with just over 61k. I'm less than 80k away from my goal! But how do you pick a place to wardrive, and how do you actually do  it? The easiest way is to download WiGLE on an android phone, get some transportation, and be set on your way. But if you want more detail or some tips, keep reading.  Avon Lady Method : Find a city within reasonable distance of travel Examine the results for the past few years of the area; do not use the overall coverage of all time.  Verify if the city is desirable for wardriving Little coverage in the past few years Most residential areas are not covered Use maps to search and define high density residential areas (i.e. apartments, town homes).  Create an order that allows for little overlapping and in a convenient driving pattern.

Goal Setting: Creating a vision board

 Hey y'all! I know I've missed my 2022 resolution to post once a month on the blog. It's something I think about frequently. I have been pouring my efforts into other areas of my life and haven't set enough time to create content or write blog posts. I've recently been reinvigorated after coming back from GrrCON 2022. Not only was GrrCON so much fun, I presented a pretty good talk: Hey Ma' Where's Malware Come From? It'll have it's own blog post once all the content is ready.  If you want to follow along, make your own vision board for free here .  I have a lot on my plate of tasks I don't attend to; things I want to do and things I need to do. I decided to help me clarify my goals and give myself some good mile markers via a vision board. Here's what the board means to me: (from left to right) Fox: I want to strive to do my best a work and position myself for future career growth and opportunities. I value where I work and want to be a helpf


 I've attempted, with mixed results, to establish a hashtag on Mastodon on Wednesdays for wardriving. Why? Because I feel like it. There are so many awesome people in the wardriving space that could probably do it better, but I'm going to do it instead.  I cannot recall where I heard this general rule of thumb, but I believe it was Dragorn who said " For every adapter you can go about 10mph ". I wonder how true that is, and I wonder more how I would begin to test that theory. This is something I'd like to figure out, and will likely need some assistance.  I also plan on remaking my rigs with raspberry pi alternatives. Right now there is a lot of drama surrounding raspberry pi, but I'm doing it just because of the cost and supply issues. There are many alternatives now, and I'm sure they'll make a few rigs. I'll keep the updates posted under the hashtag on Wednesday. If you're interested in wardriving you should join the RF Sanctuary Discord.
