Nice photo!

 

your boring though, i woulda made a rock sculpture and left it to see how long a bite would take :3

 

 

I just got home now, would have seen a cairn, and straight on GZ to see how the culprit was :)

 

As for earth, battery not earthed, have thought about it.
The ground is real gnarly, just shingle packed together with glacial silt
I would not even consider bringing a digger in to do any work here unless it was 20tn
Cable from Grey pillar to modem is only 1m long so the lightning interference is coming in along the road.
All the village power is buried, very last pole before going underground is also where our transformer is, no idea about earthing at cabinet as it's just a grey box sitting on a concrete base, would love to see the connection credential of house behind the cabinet.
At our house I put in a 6.5m long galvanised rebar, down beside 2x concrete water tanks so buried 2.5m deep

 

I can live with Loss of signal resyncs, as long as my gear keeps working and not going up in smoke, as a DV120 did a few years back burnt out completely on inside, black mess

Well spotted, you must be staying in town for the holidays or camping with the hordes (well no so bad now) or on the Alps to Ocean ride ?
Yes its a spot we love, and having VDSL just cream ontop



Yeah the Alps 2 ocean. Ohau (Lake Middleton campsite) to Kurow today.

Have been pleasantly surprised how quiet things are, both on the trail and in the town's along the way

Between Xmas and last week up here was bedlam with people, the camp at middleton was chocka, Twizel was just manic, population 1200 normally 30,000 over new years
Quite a hike between Ohau and Omarama, people often don't realise its a 400m climb
Did keep a closer eye on the Battery box and solar panel, incase of unsavoury behaviour
