Cell Tower Check

Recommended Posts

Went to Dumont with my old Jeep to check on the cell tower.

 

The tower is up but isn't hooked up. Not even the red light on top.

And while I was there of course I had to check on other stuff.

On the way to comp bill, that spot where people always get stuck, there's a dune there.

It goes all the way across. It's about 4 or 5 ft high. Now people will really get stuck there!

Of course gotta check out comp bill.

Note the ripples at the top and how steep the left side is now. Steeper than it was.

We always like to sit on top of a small dune near the North Pole. The dune has switched around, the back side was the smooth side. It's steep now. Exactly opposite of the way it used to be. Everybody used to sit up here and use their phone.

The solar light is still working!

It started getting really windy, time to go.

On our way out, saw a camper. I checked to make sure they weren't stuck. They were okay.

By thier accent, I think they were European.

Also a truck showed up with more tower stuff.

But the road and the wind was blowing pretty good.

The road was mostly deserted. Only passed one car on the way back to Pahrump.

The pics looked blurry with all the sand blowing around.

I have that familiar sand in the ears and hair. No top or doors on the Jeep.

The road is washboarded the whole way right now.

Yea, they got a ways to go..... Im guessing on the way things "usually work" they are going to ramp back up after the time that they can spend more time on the tower per hour due to temps.....

The tower isn't scheduled to be operational until fall when all the carriers install their equipment. 

 

I love seeing the shifting dunes. Thanks for sharing the pics!
