Hike Up a Hill

(nr Winston NM)
I was in a pretty nice camp with shade trees, the surrounding cliffs and mountains. However, the cell signal was weak and only worked intermittently with an amp and outside antenna. What to do?

Hike Up a Hill

I knew that a couple of miles up the highway a good signal existed. But, I didn’t want to go that far. As I looked around, I saw there was a high hill across the road with a slope that seemed not too steep.

So, off I went to see if I could hike to the top. It was easy at first, but got more difficult with loose rocks and a steeper incline. With no trail to follow, it was a guess as to which way to proceed.

Eventually, I reached the summit and was rewarded with a panoramic view. There was my rig Tardis, far below and tucked in amongst the trees. And, as expected there was a good signal with 3 bars. Hurrah!
