    That same pattern continued for the heavy rain last night, here are the totals.

    RAIN?

    lt's all to the West of me, and the way it's moving makes me wonder if I will get any rain at all? It is missing most of the Pines completely (so far).

    I appreciate that, but I need to concentrate on the new topo map. There are only so many hours in the day and that project has taken way too long... I need to get it finished and start working on the mobile site. In the future I might consider special projects for something like $50/hour. But...

    Historic Highways of America

    Glad it's been helpful! But the basic problem, which I've mentioned before, is that the 1-meter LIDAR ends at the county line (in the middle of the Mullica). Believe me, you can't afford to pay my hourly rate, considering how much time it takes to make those maps. :D

    Thanks! :) Unfortunately, I have suspended work on the LIDAR site for the time being. Maybe next year? I really appreciate the support you guys have given me, but the fact is that there's very little interest. Looking at the stats, there have only been 29 visitors to lidar.boydsmaps.com during...

    The boydsmaps.com site move is now complete, everything is finally "under the same roof" and considerably faster than before. :)

    Support informs me that the site migration is now in progress, but could take awhile due to the large amount of data. Everything is still working as usual and you should just be taken to the old site until we make the switch after all the data has been transferred.

    Am I a Piney Now?

    Garmin just introduced the GPSMap 65 series today, which appear to be updated versions of the GPSMap64 with more accurate multi-band receivers. These are brand new, so no user reports yet. However, they *might* offer more accuracy than we could previously get from consumer devices...

    Am I a Piney Now?

    +/- 10 feet would be +/- 3 meters. That would be excellent GPS accuracy from any consumer GPS device, I suspect it's actually a lot worse than that. You could get better results with an external bluetooth receiver that sends data to the phone. These cost about $100 for the Garmin GLO on up to...

    Am I a Piney Now?

    The one-meter LIDAR imagery might reveal some interesting features... https://lidar.boydsmaps.com/#x111y055/shader/-390/712/-243/-390/1/-243/-1686/647/-900/49/2.5/2d https://lidar.boydsmaps.com/#x111y055/solid/-391/749/-244/-390/1/-243/-1490/118/-900/56/2.5/2d

    Am I a Piney Now?

    Yes, I'd say you're a Piney now. :) Glad that you've finally decided to participate in the fun here, will look forward to hearing more from you! If I understand correctly, you are talking about that tiny little triangle at the crosshairs here (although your coordinates are just slightly North...

    Yes, that's what I meant. To put it another way, nature doesn't care what kind of weather we prefer. :)

    Change of Seasons

    Unfortunately, we don't get to choose the kind of weather we like. ;) Just took delivery of two cords of firewood so I'm ready for anything, still have 1/2 cord left from last winter. Thinking about how warm I'll be.... from carrying it all to the porch and stacking it!

    The site move has been scheduled for tomorrow (Friday, September 25). Hopefully there will be minimal impact, but there's the potenial for disruption of all my sites due to the way the web addresses are configured. Will update this thread when the move is complete. This change will make access...

    Change of Seasons

    Looks like the seasons are changing back again, days around 80 and nights around 60 for the next week or so. Personally, I'm fine with that. :)
