My boondocking Tradewind in Google Maps photo

It's not a free or accessible boondocking site (radio repeater site east of Enumclaw, Washington) but thought someone else would be amused by the photo. I was looking at Google Maps and was startled to see that their aerial photo of our radio site must have been taken during the week when I was camped out there in my 1971 Tradewind ... it was in July of 2006, I think, and spectacularly clear. See the photo in the gallery... proof that 8 miles (each way) of dirt/logging road isn't too much even for a big beast like that.

That's very cool! How did you get to camp up there? Sounds like you had the place to yourself.

The picture of our house on Google is missing the AS because they must have taken the shot when we were out on a trip. In fact since the shop isn't completed in the picture, and I think we only took one trip while the shop was under construction, we could pinpoint when that was too. It was also about three years ago.

My company owns it ... we have a couple of remote mountaintop sites that are used for two-way radio, microwave etc.

Best I ever did was sit on top of the AC units on the roof of where I worked to watch the July 4th. Fireworks. The police saw us and assembled 5 car loads of cop before they attacked. Lucky they did not shot or I would have had a job repairing the AC.
