Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I knew that back when I was in elementary school , 50 some years ago. it was in our history book. the only reason I still remember that is because me a couple friends though it was neat, so we went out in the field by the school and did it to see if it would work. fast forward to 2000. I went out there to see it. unfortunately that field was paved over and it was a industrial park. the school is still there, the building, but it's now a marine corp reserve

Lots of info and we got many of these on the Menominee Indian reservation. Generally along old horse trails/ Indian trails shown on the Charles Brown maps and post 1860 abandoned settlements.
