It seems the Tikaboo Spy Cam battery, in the words of Dr. McCoy, is dead Jim! It wasn't being charged for a few days and apparently the designers
didn't engineer a cutoff circuit to prevent it from being discharged beyond repair.
This is the last photo the station took:
Two things come to mind. One, where is that guy that wanted to stay on Tikaboo for a full year. I think that photo might change his mind. Two, just
how soon is the Desert Research Institute going to fix the weather station. Oh, they could have put it on Badger Mountain, just a few miles away,
where there is a landing pad for a helicopter. That would make the repair possible during the winter. But wait, they couldn't spy on the Tikaboo
climbers from Badger Mountain.
Come on DRI folks, get your snow shoes and fix that weather station stat!
