Moab rim: There are 2 ways up onto the rim. They don't officially attach on top and...I'll never drive the "minesweeper" trail again. 2 reasons. I think a boulder has finished off the trail for trucks and it is just too much exposure for me.

Doesn't reach very far. I'm in cabin 6 and no joy. I'm sitting up near the office to type this now.

Sounds like the crew ran the north half of Fins 'N Things today. Tomorrow we'll probably go do Porcupine Rim. If we have time, I want to go find Chicken Corners (I'm leading it on Thursday).

Weather is warm and beautiful. I'm sitting outside as I type this, past midnight, no jacket needed.

Cheeseman, Ken and Sarah Romer, and I ate at Buck's tonight, just by the entrance to Slickrock. This is my 8th Cruise Moab, and it was the first time I had eaten there. It's gourmet food! Unbelievable. I may eat there again this week. Perhaps the best meal I have eaten in Moab.

We hung out with the guys from Tennessee for a while. Woody and Clutchee made it in too. Drank a beer in the luxury Davidson accommodations -- very upscale.

My cabin is dingy and smells like dirt. I opened the windows and it smells less. Or maybe I am getting used to it already.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

ok - I guess I will help you wireless weenies out. Here are some steps to make a reflector to help your laptops wireless signal.

go to the store there on main street, and pick up a small strainer, mixing bowl, or other bowl with as round a bottom as possible. If you can get copper mixing bowl, or stainless steel one, that's even better. Ideally it should be twice as deep as it's diameter. The bowl should also be at least around 4-6" in diameter. If not metallic, grab some aluminum foil and cover the inside of the bowl with as few of wrinkles as possible. working in strips is a good way to accomplish this.

Then, take your bowl and you laptop, and go to a wireless source. go online, and try and locate through google where your INTERNAL wireless antenna is located in the machine. Usually it will be by the hinge or on the sides, but often on one of the corners by a hinge.

Once you locate that, fire up your signal strength utility and position the reflector to where gives you the most signal strength. Once you learn that positioning, the position of the reflector will not change respective to the laptop. You will have to change the orientation of the laptop to find the best linear signal, but the bowl position should remain un-changed.

merry x-mas. you have now built a parabolic range extender.

I think everyone should wear a reflector!

This sucks. It doesn't work. And I can't see the keyboard with it on. And Carrie just laughs at me. Sheesh.

















But I don't hear those voices in my head anymore. Hmmm.

Well I am up near the office doing laundry and brought my wife's camera and figured I would upload some pix.

Except I forgot the USB cable.


Yeah yeah yeah, yuck it up. I'm lucky I remembered the laundry.
