    Went to the mountains

    I lived in Oregon 4 or 5 years in 1970's or so an went up to the mountains by myself during weekends after work and slept in my 2 man tent and camping by myself too. All my bow and even my guns were all stolen before I went Oregon and just went up to discovered whatever I found in the mountains, even panned some gold and never hunted. I took a 357 pistol tho LOL got this cat picure years ago and some think it was a 10 month old Mountain Lion here in Missouri. After the picture, I went to put more cams out in the woods in 2AM at the cabin. I told my wife if it would kill me, I would be famous because it's been a hundred years since a lion killed somebody here in Missouri- - - she said get some other way famous... the original pix don't show any spots, I tried focus too much and showed these spots, etc on this pix cause I couldin find the original

    Wet circuit boards?

    Ouch! glad YOU are okay... while at work, a wiring welder would sometimes left outside during rains, some times all night (it had electronic boards) I would spray rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) on the board and use air to blow it away till it was dry. (while trying the welder somewhat still wet, it would running out all the wire) but it always started okay after dried. rubbing alcohol has some kind of oil in it so maybe it helped the board, I don't know thou anyway, that's what I did, don't know about your problem and I don't think I would try this, since it is dried now? Ouch! again

    Metal Detector

    here are pix's of some more relics, the 2 knifes from the 1910 old house I found, I used electrolysis (?) to remove the rust from the one, (the black one is after electrolysis) I can't see the letters very good on the black one, can you? The coins I show here is around the house here, etc, and one is a 1903 "V" nickle I found by the 1910 house. what about the Spoon or fork on the right? the hole in center looks like the company made it ...

    Lithium-ion batteries

    I use either alkaline or lithium-ion on my commercial cam's, they hold up on the batt's real good so I don't use rechargeables on them. It seems the battery test meter's on the cam's seem to have a problem with lithium-ion batts and when they say 70% - I better change them, at night, when the lights come in, the video may only record 3 or 4 seconds (all my cams record video's so I doubt it matters with pix's) Lithium-ion's really last a long time and have no problems when it's cold. I use NiMH's on my brew cams, like BhT said, Eneloop's seem last longer than other brands. I only use rechargables because they have been in them years LOL my 2 ¢
