This year we'll be able to stay a little more in contact with family as it seems Watson Lake has gotten cell service that reaches our cabin! Which is pretty amazing as we are out in the middle of no where! Granted, you have to stand on the cabin roof to get a signal, but it will be nice to be able to send a text to my kids! We have been using a really cool devise to send messages ( a prewritten 'we're fine' message via email) to family while out there, just so they know everything is ok. This handy gadget is called a Spot. It is a great thing to have if you are like us and spend a lot of time 'out of contact' with the world. It sends off messages to a satelite which in turn sends an email letting people know all is well or that you need help, but it's not an emergency, or an urgent 911 message which goes to an emergency response centre. It's been great knowing that in an emergency we can get help right to where we are. Thankfully, we've only had to send the 'we're fine' messages!
Today, we have a few things to pick up, and a stop at the bank to try to clear up some problem of their making with a transfer from my account to??? It never made it to where it was supposed to go! Hopefully it will be cleared up before we head out to the cabin Saturday. Time to get this show on the road, so I'm off! TTYS!
