This is the latest "episode" continuing this thread I created 1 year ago here:
One the main tasks I had in mind for the latest trip I just returned from, was to revisit this "gate" and try and get some better pictures of the
devices. Out of the many pictures I took, these are probably the best. Taken from 3 different angles:
Angle 1 Closeup
Angle 2 Closeup 1
Angle 2 Closeup 2
Angle 3 Closeup
About the mysterious box: it appears to be just an electrical panel box. Nothing any more interesting than that. You can see the two conduits mate to
fittings on the bottom of the box. There is a heavy ground wire running from a fitting on the bottom of the box, wired to one of the supports, then it
continues to the ground. Likely attached to a ground rod pounded into the ground.
From two of the angles, there appears to me to be a "weather hood" for the top of a vertical conduit, on the cement pad behind the box. See picture
below for reference:
Conduit Weather Hood
Normally you would see cables coming out these hoods. However, I have never seen one at ground level. Normally you would see them on the top of a
conduit attached to the side of a building.
So the mystery is... still a mystery. I actually made two trips in to this gate to get pictures, the first ones I wasn't happy with. My second time I
ripped in there fast from Hwy 375, directly to the gate. The camo dudes never did show up for the 15 minutes or so I was there. It would take them
time to get from the guard shack to this gate. I really REALLY had to talk myself out of running the 50 ft. or so across the border to get some
closeups of this damn mysterious box!
