Default Live From My Maple Camp

Tapping, sapping, and boiling Maple syrup today. A friend brought over a Link Sys Acess point I hooked into my modem, and Hey!,.... I'm a pioneer. For the first time I have internet out in the woods. Link Sys works pretty good! About 1000 feet from house and still getting 2 bars and 18Mbps.... Pics to come soon.

Ya,I was surprised the Link Sys would reach that far, I actually told the guy to space it. He brought it anyways with his laptop and tadaaa! I ran down and got mine as well. Now we're playing signal tug of war.

Sounds like a good trade Kevin, but I doubt sausage would make it in the mail "ungreen". I'll meet ya'* halfway. I'll be in western Michigan May7-11th.

Lock you linksys down otherwise you'll be given up bandwidth to your neighbor.

Actually...Smoked sausage is cured, vacuum packed and can be frozen for the ride. PM me if you're in!
