Hey, Vik,

Love your site, I’ve been following it for several months. I gotta ask: what is your profession?

This looks like a picture from a photo caption contest.

That stuff looks suspiciously like surveying equipment. Probably to measure distance, elevation, and maybe even interface with a GPS system.

@Bob – I’m an engineer by education, but 10yrs as an army captain with zero engineering right after university got me off track in that career path! I’m a consultant now so I do a lot of things from management type work, to quality control/geophysical technical stuff.

In this photo I’m towing a electromagnetic sensor w/GPS over a field to locate military ordnance. This was the easiest part of the property and the work is extremely hard physically, but also a great workout!

Ordinance huh?! I was going guess O&G RoW mapping, but this sound much more interesting.

Surely you could mount something like that on a Big Dummy….

The big dummy can haul that gear on flatish terrain, but the goal is to locate large bits of metal and since the BD is a very large bit of metal being close to it wouldn’t get you any useful readings.

I’m just taking a break after hauling a 50lbs sled through 1.5′ of snow in the trees. A bike would be even leas fun to push/pull. Even a Pugsley.
