More Calendar event Alert time options

It has always annoyed me that I couldn’t set a Calendar event alert time to 10, 20, or 45 minutes. I had to accept the default times of 5, 15, 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours.

Here is a simple way to get around that.  Use Travel Time.

Travel Time lets you add the time it will take to get to the event. For example, if you want to be notified 20 minutes prior to the event, set the Alert for 15 minutes and the Travel Time to 5 minutes (or vice versa).  The Alert time will occur 15 minutes before the Travel Time of 5 minutes is added, giving you a 20 minute notification.

Using this technique you can set alerts to not only the default 5, 15, 30, 60, 120 minutes, but also 10, 20, 35, 45, 65, 75, 90, or 105 minutes by selecting  the corresponding combination of Alert and Travel Time pairs.

Bommer Canyon Hiking Trails

Even though I have lived in Irvine for over 20 years, I had never hiked in Bommer Canyon until this past week.  I was shocked to see how much beautiful open space there is!

To get there, I plugged Bommer Canyon into my phone’s maps app, and found my way to the Bommer Canyon entrance, off of Shady Canyon Drive (at the edge of Turtle Rock Village).

Once you arrive, there are a couple different trails you can take.  I chose the one that headed directly away from the parking lot into the hills.  It was a fairly moderate hike, perfect for all ages and hiking levels, giving you various routes to adjust the distance you want to walk.  If you haven’t been out to Bommer Canyon, I highly recommend a visit this summer.
