Moderators mountainborn Posted September 4, 2008 Moderators Share Posted September 4, 2008 Nearly all of our favorite campsites are covered with large old growth oak trees. Those locally, that is. September, October and November are some of our favorite months to camp and enjoy the outdoors. We usually enjoy the start of the television new program season that is also about that time of the year. Maybe it's the fact that it is getting dark outside earlier in the day ? Anyhow we find ourselves turning on the TV so we can view the new offerings. But we usually plan the next days activities around the weather and getting a live radar view is often very important. We set a portable dish in a opening so we can access a satellite. However, that dish/tripod setup is a pain to carry with us. Though not very heavy, it does take up more space than we like. We often leave it behind for that very reason. So, my question is this. Anybody ever taken a hacksaw to that infernal contraption ? You know, to make it smaller. Maybe put hinges and snaps on it somehow so it would fold up smaller for transport, then unfold, for use at the campsite ? We have all laughed at some of the Redneck solutions to technology photos that circulate on the internet. Betty says that she is worried that I may be the star of one of those photos involving a satellite dish ! I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth 08' Oliver Legacy Elite HULL NUMBER 0003(sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
