RE: Robert Young fakes run across America

I suggest these posted to a brand new strava account to avoid confusion with existing data.

As someone suggested, once these are posted, we can crowd-source the actual start times of these. It wouldn't be too much work to add the closest matching tracker endpoint to these records.


I've uploaded all the previously un-timestamped Joanna Hanasz activities to a brand new Strava account here:

https://www.strava.com/athletes/16078476

Strava was refusing to accept uploads of some of them to the previous Rob Arvie account as the were considered duplicates of existing activities, which would be expected if the timestamps were roughly correct.

For the start times of each activity, I had a script that looked at the first lat/lon in the activity file, and then found the closest point in the team1.kml and locations.js data from the OpenTracker. If there were multiple close points of the same distance, it picked the last point ( so, if the RV stops for a while, we should have the time from when it started moving ).

So, the start times should be 'correct' to within 12 minutes, but maybe more if the RV or Rob started off on their own. I'll take a walk though and maybe adjust a couple if I find an obvious overlap with one of the ones we have 'genuine' timestamps for.

Interesting how Strava was automatically converting so many of these into 'Rides' when uploading, despite the default being 'Run'
