This week I spent my time on a old vineyard near Springbrook, the job at hand was to repair as many sensor nodes as we could. The land has been purchased by the Queensland government to be restored, there are a few patches of rain forest and thick bush land that we have to walk through to get to each node. Besides the suiting up to keep the cold/leaches/ticks away walking around this land is just spectacular and has become my favorite work environment. I have posted some images below to give a idea of the beauty of the land.
Besides trying to keep our electronics dry (laptop, sensor boards when cover removed) the rain didn’t bother me at all, it was more refreshing and relaxing, the wind did get annoying though it seems to get through any amount of cloathing one would put on.
Map of the network is below the images. 🙂
