Just so everyone knows...

A group of west siders are planning on meeting on the east side the weekend of June 11-13 to deliver some donated computer equipment to Lone Pine H.S., install two web cams, and maybe do a hike. One cam will be aimed at Mt. Williamson from Ft Independence, and the other will be in Lone Pine.

Initial plans are to work on the camera/computer install on Friday, and, if all is successful, then hike on Saturday.

I am putting out this announcement, in case anyone might be interested in joining in on the fun either day.

If the hike is in the Whitney Zone, we're hoping to snag some walk-in permits.

Wagga and I spent some hours yesterday and today working on the camera housing boxes. Glass is in place in the holes + @ti2d cut. Styrofoam added to the top of the boxes. Plexiglas sun-shades for the boxes are mounted. Need to paint the shades yet. Then work out the wiring.

...progress!

Pictures of progress?


The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.

So? We just call it the MooseCam, and follow your adventures. Who wants a static picture of one mountain when they could be privy to all your epical treks!

It took enough for me to get a SPOT, since I really didn't like the thought of being "watched"...

Besides, isn't it more fun to wonder what silliness I got myself into over the weekend come Monday mornin'??

I'll be in the area 11-14 June with my Scouts. 12 June we will be at Grass Lake (hopefully). Feel free to stop by our site at the family camp ground - 19, 21, 23 and 42. You'll see our trailer - either parked or seriously stuck somewhere. It would be great to put a face to the name!.....................................DUG

Got extra room for my wife and me? Self-sufficient. Will pay for the full cost of one space in cash. Feel free to PM me.

EMd the Hostel with no response. Will call to make a reservation. If that fails, hence the question.

What do you do to a lame horse? No worries. I will be unarmed. If trailer is stuck, I will be more than happy to get it "un-stuck."

Have fun. Semper fi.

DUG, we'll certainly have to look you and your crew up! Friday evening???

And I've pulled my share of trailers a few miles, so we can help in that department, too.

The web cam housings were actually assembled by remote control using ROVs in 5000' of water. Amazing technology.

True dat. Mondays just wouldn't be the same. Speakining of which, today is this week's Monday, even though it's really Tuesday (who's on first?) - where's the NV skinny?

Steve - We get into the Portal Friday night and are headed to grass Lake Saturday morning, returning Sunday morning in search of THE BURGER.

I'm a PRO at trailer towing, BUT the Portal campground might be a tight spot for a 22 foot trailer and a 22 foot truck.

The Duramax will yank it uphill no problem, but parking is gonna be a PITA.

See you guys soon.........................DUG

Might have room, I just had a couple folks drop out - though I doubt the campground will be full. The only reason the trailer is gonna get stuck is cuz it and the truck are probably too big for the campground. We'll see...........................DUG
