Other thoughts were shared such as the snow hindering snowmobiling (and not to stop in the road with them in this warm weather), benefits of Mobile use, using a bicycle as an alternative power source, Salt water being a better conductor for a counterpoise than fresh water (such as ice fisher hams might think to use), The Red Green show talking about water being a battery and benefits of using Anderson Power poles.
