North Tech Trailer Update
This is my first attempt at writing a journal entry about our adventures here in the North. Yesterday we could not hook up the Motosat dish because we had to negotiate a rough gravel road up to our undeveloped camp site on Meyers Hill and the RV pulling the tech trailer could not make it to our camp site.
Today, we travelled about 20 miles to another pass (Mullan Pass) and parked near the Historic Site of the first Masonic meeting in Montana. We have an incredible panorama toward the South and ideal satellite reception so are live again, after a near disaster. Turns out that some coax cables worked themselves loose from the rough ride and the satellite dish nearly crushed itself on the roof of the tech trailer. After a few frantic calls and a couple of hours checking all the connections 3 times (and a quick plate of supper), I finally discovered the loose cables and everything was hunky-dory again.
