    Flying my drone around Belleville, Nevada.

    Nice drone footage, it's amazing how you can still see the areas they dug out to build.

    BLM RV parking

    The Reno Fox station pipes in KTVU Oakland news. I remember a recent piece where some Bay Area city has a street or two that is lined with motorhomes lived in by Silicone Valley and financial district workers who make good money but can’t find nor afford permanent housing. Efforts are being made to locate them somewhere safe and at low cost. Might find the story on the station’s website.

    BLM RV parking

    You'd have more luck finding a WalMart that would let you camp. BLM land is going to be a 2-3+ hour drive in any direction.

    Ruger Security-9

    Looks like a drop-shipper for the most part. Small store front, but at least they have a storefront you could knock on....

    Ruger Security-9

    Anyone in the greater Reno area have any experience with Juggernaut Arms in Sparks? Their prices for the Security-9 mags very close to what Mag Shack defrauded me of and they’re local. Good reviews on Yelp, but I’m skeptical of internet reviews as there’s often too much paid praise online. I know where the store is as I used to go to LKQ nearby a lot when I was still working.

    Ruger Security-9

    After a week and a day, no apparent progress on my magazines ordered. Tracking still only shows one initial item: A shipping label has been prepared for your item at 4:38 pm on March 7, 2019 in TALLAHASSEE, FL 32309. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. I sent an email today, no response. I plan to call tomorrow. I did a Google search. Wish I had previous to ordering. Seems my situation is not uncommon. The BBB website has several complaints with experiences similar to mine. So do some gun enthusiast forums. If I don’t get a response, I guess I’ll have to contact my credit card company to stop payment if not too late.

    If you want to use FTP upload of motion detection, you'll need to add a variable to motion.conf ftp_video_duration=10 It's in seconds, without that it'll record 0 second videos and upload them... not too handy. I reported that to the person who implemented the feature so it should end be fixed in the repo sometime.

    BLM RV parking

    I believe one can park an RV at the convention center in Redwood City, but I am not certain on about that. It was a while back when I heard they allowed you to park there for free.

    BLM RV parking

    KTVU News did another piece on the RV parking situation last night. The city is Mountain View. RVs are parking at and surrounding a public park in a residential area. Public opinion seem to lean toward compassion for the plight of the RV’ers situation. City council trying to come up with ideas to accomodate and to eliminate situation.

    Ruger Security-9

    Suddenly, after days of unanswered emails, suddenly my magazines are in transit, expected Friday. It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday, so I took the Ruger to the county gun range. View over the range. The dump is to the right. The upper part of the range (archery and shotguns) is off camera to the left. The lower range is in the center, with rifle, centerfire and long ranges (400 yards). Nice, clean facility with canopys, shooting benches, stands, sand bag gun rests, clay throwers, permanent targets, concrete prefab toilets, sitting benches, trash cans and cleanup tools. Only one family shooting shotguns was there. I backed into the centerfire range and set up with a a paper target taped to a permanent backing at approximately 75 feet stepped off. Paper target in the middle over the sillouette. First taped the target between the round spinner and its frame, and put twenty rounds through it. But bullets shredded the paper instead of making clean holes. So I taped a new target to the solid backing and fired another 80 rounds. I shot using both hands. After expending each magazine, I circled each bullet hole, noting clip number and which hand. Counting holes from the backside I counted 49 hits. I only hit the target four times left handed, all over the map right, but primarily low. Did get a few in the center. Target is 16”x16”. I’m keeping this and future targets in my files to see if I’m getting better.

    BLM RV parking

    One mile west there is BLM land I believe. Unfortunately it's is a rock in the ocean so it won't do you any good. Realistically I think Panoche Hills or Red Hills maybe the closest BLM areas like that and those are not close. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a spot farther away from BLM and NF in the state then you are now. If this is a long term situation maybe consider transferring your medical needs to a different VA. Short term I'd look into camping options in other areas like state parks or national recreation areas, etc.

    I am not sure if there is any BLM land out there, you would have to travel a great distance east to get to some BLM land.

    BLM RV parking

    What part of California? I don't think there is anything specific for Veterans, but anyone can camp out on BLM in most areas for up to 14 days free of charge.

    I was going through pictures and scanning everything in, when I found a recipe for Irish Soda bread that my grandmother wrote down on a card. Here's the recipe: The story from my mother was that Clive and Eleanor broke down near Panamint Springs, at the time my grandparents lived there at the Caltrans station. Who were these folks from Sunnyvale, what really happened? As luck would have is their son is a professor at Stanford, pretty easy to find and through him more details come out: I'm going to try and find pictures of my grandparents from 1975 and send them along. Maybe they'll find some pics, who knows.

    Another bug I found, if you set a region for motion detection it somehow causes the RTSP server to crash after server 3 or so frames. Removing the region, and it works. I might look into this and submit a fix if I have time.

    Come Explore Abandoned Log Cabin!

    Thanks! Sometimes it's hard to tell what these old structures are used for. Someone mentioned to me they thought parts of it almost looked like a dressing room, so I wonder if it could have been a boutique?

    Now that I've had a chance to poke around some with the hack firmware. For surveillance purpose typically 5-10fps is sufficient. I'm testing cameras set to 1600x900, 10fps, 2000 bitrate and CBR. Seems like reasonable settings. the motion detection seems to work okay, however the feature to send mail when motion is detected appears to have some bugs. I can see it connecting to my mail server, then just dropping pretty much immediately. There is a feature to FTP upload images from motion detection, you have to modify motion.conf to enable that. I'm going to try that, and setup my FTP server to email alerts when new images are received. That should work just as well as the camera sending directly.

    Hey all, new member here. Just learned about this forum the other day from John (Backwoodsbeast). I recently got out of the Air Force and I’m excited to use my new found freedom to explore my new home of Reno.
