Titusville - I really need one of these...


I want one of these!

In Taking Hoolie out for his afternoon walk, I saw a USACE survey vessel docked. It looked very rugged all decked out in marine aluminum. Whenever they needed some attachment, they just welded a piece of aluminum on and there it was. I didn't get a chance to talk with the crew, they left in a hurry for shore. I'd love to see what equipment they have on board to do their surveys. 

Double Trimble GPSs, of course (the yellow antennas)

Now, if only I could get a sponsor so I could take one of these babies down the ICW in the fall and again in the spring. It would be great for forming the tracks every season. Oh well, I do what I can but it would be so much better if I have a real survey boat! 

Well, it gets some people excited...

Tuesday is the big day to pick up the rental car for going to Deltaville. We use Enterprise since we have points to use and they've been very reliable in the past. However, with the virus raging, they no longer will pick you up, you have to rent a car from their office. For me, that means a mile or so walk downtown in Titusville. It's an easy hike since everything is flat down here anyway. We will fill the car up with luggage Tuesday night and start out first thing Wednesday morning for Deltaville, avoiding the virus as best we can.
