Topic tags/keywords: electronic water indicator

I just spotted this in my Makezine RSS subscription and thought I’d pass it on to anyone who can solder a few tiny electronics and gets bored.

I Love Make… just wish that so much of it’s projects weren’t (just barely) over my head

Got to agree with that.. Seems like lately all they’ve been doing is pushing their electronics boards.

I see your in Kentucky. beautiful place.

In my one and only visit to your state I went camping. A black bear decided to join me and my brother in the tent. The bear came in the front door and we quickly made another door through the back.

The very next day on a walk through the woods, mother nature beckoned me for a number two. Walking off the trail I dropped my drawers and let it fall and much to my surprise another black bear decided to join me. My brother still laughs when he remembers me squatting with pants around the ankles and then trying to back away from the bear who ate what I left behind.

next visit I will get a hotel room

-- just one more rock, and the garden is done ; )

ROFLOL.. Now that’s a memorable visit.. Was nice of you to, -cough-, leave the bear a peace offering.. ;)

Guessing you stayed around the east side of the state?
