It's that Brockway time of year ... Courtesy of the Copper Harbor Fire Department. This is our off road rescue rig (minus the pull behind transport) Already went up to the top earlier this week, in the middle of a blizzard, for a service run. This was a test at the First Lookout, about a mile out of Copper Harbor, looking over the town. (And Lake Fanny Hooe in the background right, The Harbor, and Lake Superior on the left.)

I thought it had a small barrel on the front of it.

Here's what the battery looked like when I got it out of the MacBook. (By the way, even with gloves on, I got really ill for about 6 hours after handling this. Guess it was SCBA territory)

I just noticed the comment they added at the end of our software release from last week. Accurate

Atomic Batteries to Power, Turbines to Speed, I think the Baternet Link is back to being self sufficient. (Well, the batteries ARE made of atoms, I can say that...) Two weeks of repairs after the mast snapped in the wind storm.

We live in a very remote area. The nearest digital fiber is 35 miles away. Most of the Internet connectivity in our county is via microwave link. This is a wind and solar powered relay station that supplies Internet connectivity to a large part of the county. This site is about 10 Km from any plowed roads, and a 732 foot climb in elevation to get to. Can be quite a problem to maintain in the winter. Luckily the snow is very late this year.

Despite these for signs shown below, some people insist on forging ahead and wind up at our living room patio door, that opens to the deck and the view of the Lake. "Is this the way to the hiking trail?" Is their most common response when asked what they are up to.

I know the solution. You need to adopt a big friendly dog like barry and barty have with a LOW bark. One that protects vocally. A couple of signs warning of dog and his deep bark as they approach will turn them back for sure and another shelter dog will be rescued.

Copper Harbor Fire mutual aid deployment for rope rescue on Brockway Mountain. We had the easy detail this time, Eagle Harbor Fire made the full descent down the cliff.

As I'm cleaning the man cave. I came across my smart device life prior to iPhones. From right to left Nokia's 770, 800, and 810. They all still work. These are the devices I started out my podcast listening with.

These were early smart tablets marketed Nokia, that had a large number of mostly free (and some paid) "apps". All of them were touch screen devices that could be used either with just the finger, or with a stylus. Rugged as heck.
