newbie & Fawkes, rising from ashes
#81
Using my newly acquired MVUM map, with my hotspot perched in one of my way-too-shallow cupholders, just spent 2 1/2 hours searching for a dispersed camping site that has cellular coverage, and succeeded!
It's not perfect (too close to a County road), but I'll give it a few days.
Bonus: it's 2 miles from a Library with rocking wifi! Smile
I'm tentatively planning to pop over right before they close, use their restroom, then their wifi, albeit mainly for Yote pics, which are good for my/everybody's morale. Smile

This is an intervention. I worry about your addiction to yote pics....

Oh wait me too


Never mind and as our Overlord version 2.4 would say "carry on"

No yotes anonymous here. We aren't quitters.

I say the same thing about vodka.
This may be bad. But we'll see

Reality Check
Advertising ?
Does anyone really think I need a T shirt to let people know in I'm T W O ?
That ship sailed a LOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGGGG time ago.

(I did need a laminate to prove I was "with the band" to security though......a totally different thing.)

LOL! Thanks Scott! Smile
GypsyDogs said something to the effect that I was an honorary member of the Pack (or something like that - GD, please elaborate).
Yotes-in-Dodge porn was a factor in falling for Fawkes. Smile
Before the Great Trek to Oregon, I sent links to a few friends, casually mentioned yotes-not-included, and in most cases they too mourned that. Wink
Though, of course, The Yotes are already imprinted on GD. Smile

Quick NF update:
It's chilly & has been raining pretty steadily since pre-dawn.
Few minutes ago, heard what sounded like a vehicle door slam, looked outside (all my curtains/etc are "up"), and saw two uniformed Forestry peeps.
Brain instantly shifted to Worry Mode.

As usual, wasn't an issue. They got a call that someone was parked here, and were just doing a "routine" wellness check. The senior guy said they sometimes get poorly equipped campers, but they clearly saw I'm well equipped.
They asked for ID, and he very politely grilled me about fires, and I gave them my standard TBI & Quiet seeking backstory, including my inability to be around fires plus I have a gas camper stove. They were both relieved & relaxed.

Kewl Thing:
Early in the chat, I asked whether my spot was ok, and he repeatedly confirmed that I was fine, could stay there 16 continuous days, then only had to leave for 24 hours and I could come back to the same spot. Smile
Phew! Straight from the Forest's Protectors. Smile
I was afraid it might have been a website typo. Reminder: That's the rule for the Ottawa NF.

I mention this mainly for fellow Newbs. Don't be afraid of rural LEOs. They're usually pretty dang chill, and often will give useful & honest info/help. Smile
Don't hestitate to ask a few "local knowledge" questions - good cops like helping folks, and it genuinely relaxes them. Smile

Good you did.

The first thing I've always done is put the atlas in front of them and ask for shortcuts , cool spots etc.
Gets 'em every time...

Guys might hate asking directions but they sure do like giving them.......?

yeah-- I warned Kaylee that next time our paths cross, it is likely the Yotes will remember her and the van (and may 'accidentally' forget and jump up on 'their' bed..lol)
They remember people the know for a few years.. even out of context.

I thought of that as a "promise" not a warning. Wink

P.S. Had ANOTHER Cop visit yesterday!
Apparently several people have reported a "suspicious" van.
The township police had dismissed all the ones who gave an accurate description, cuz I'd already had a visit from the same township cop, while I was staying at a highway roadside park for a few days (there had been a snowstorm forecast, so I had figured I'd wait before hitting the backroads, cuz I'm a Newb).
The last report was wildly inaccurate (pink?!? WTFrack?!?), so he had to pop by (Saturday's cops were Michigan natural resources peeps, so they were more concerned with fire hazards (& that I had not frozen) than anything "criminal").
Both times, he was very stern but also intelligent & decent, so no worries, just annoying the 2nd time (fortunately, I hadn't yet switched to Coding Mode).

I knew this was a suboptimal spot (in sight of a County road), so I'll definitely avoid such in the future.

Did get some shiny wildlife yesterday, including a species I'd long wanted to get a picture of. He(?) showed up while I was frying hashbrowns, so my camera lens instantly fogged over. I've deployed unsalted almonds, and am keeping an eye out. Smile
Also had some stunningly pretty warblers. Get out there folks, it's warbler season!!! Big Grin
