Maps and Misadventures


Maybe you read this blog in the hopes that we will reveal our foibles. If so, here’s a treat for you: yesterday we left a faucet running and drained our main water tank, scraped rocks trying to squeeze into an attractive little cove, and took an awkward several tries before we were able to set our anchor.
Or – maybe you read this blog in order to follow our progress. If that’s the case, you might like to click on the link on the right hand bar called “Position Reports”. This will take you to a web page showing the locations of the users of the ham radio network that provides us with email when in remote locations. To find our location, you must work a little: scroll way down the alphabetical list of ham license numbers in the right hand column to find ours: KE7GWX.
A small window opens up and points to our last reported position. At the bottom of the window, you can click on “View position reports for KE7GWX”, and that will give you a small map like the one shown above, plus some other options for viewing our current location.
So now you can see just where on the map we are currently geeking along, alternating between adventures and missteps, between awed appreciation of the sublime natural beauty all around us and stark terror at the speed with which nature can trip the unwary.

Located the location site. There are two green pointers and one blue pointer. Which are you?

The satellite view is impressive.

The blue pointer is the most recent position we have reported. The green ones are previous locations. If you put the cursor on the colored pointer, there is a text description of that location, plus the date we posted it.
