They are very picky in San Juan county where our cabin is, on Lopez Island.

I'm sure a B-52 fuselage on the ocean front wouldn't go over too well.

There are no cell towers in the San Juan Islands, no jet ski's too, good, I don't like

ether. 

Have I ever mentioned the sky up there? I'm not sure, its magnificent. I can see

all of the little dipper, the milkyway from horizon to horizon, its truly beautiful.

I worry about the salt so I pretty much only take refractors up there.

Although I've had a 6 inch f/8 newt up there for years now with no problems.
