Marty's guess of 4800 pounds was just 40 lbs. short of the actual count of 4840 lbs. Very close indeed. And as a reward, Marty will soon be the proud recipient of a 3 Liter (that's the same as 4 regular bottles) of the delicious 2005 Tom Eddy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Yay, Marty!
|Friends of Tom Eddy Wines giving Marty a rousing cheer!|
We gave Marty a call the other night to tell him the results and got his answering machine instead. We found out later it was late (in Geogia time) and he was putting the kids to bed. When we finally connected the next day and told him the good news, his first words were: "Wow"!! That's amazing. Wait until I tell my friends!" Seems that it was through friends several years ago that he first heard of Tom Eddy Wines and has been a fan ever since.
But we still had a few questions for him...
Us: "How did you come up with the final number of 4800 lbs.?"
Marty: "Lucky guess."
Us: "Did you watch the videos we made to get the clues?"
Marty: "No" (laughter).
Us: "Even WE thought it was going to be well over 5,000 lbs, Marty. How did you do it?"
Marty: "I could have done a history of the area and used it as a guide regarding rain, weather, climate but instead I googled the previous year's results and took an educated guess."
Everyone has their own system. And Marty's worked for him. Way to go, Marty!
