Thursday June 30th, 2016. “Today was a good day” in the infamous words of Ice Cube, we were treated to lunch at Howie’s; thank you Sheila. We continue to work on our mapping by adding more information to make our maps more professional looking. Making sure to show the placement of Minnesota within the United States boundaries, because people from foreign countries may not know where we are. Also making sure to highlight where the Leech Lake Reservation is located in Minnesota, deep in the heart of the state. Maybe I’m just a little biased when it comes to the location of my homeland, that’s just what I believe.
Looking forward to going to Cedar Creek next week; hope everyone don’t chicken out at the last minute. we are also plugging in our waypoints that we took out in the field. Glad to see where exactly in the woods we were at. All the possibilities we can include in our maps, GIS can be fun once you learn the basics otherwise it can be most difficult. There are times you want to rip your hair out and punch through your computer screen, trust me. Patience is the key to understanding the program.
This weekend is 4th of July weekend Abitaah Niibing which means half of summer, they considered the fourth of July to be the turning point of summer. After that it’s all downhill into fall then winter. Sorry to say folks but that’s just how it goes. Pow-wow here on Leech this weekend I am hoping to be able to go and enjoy myself, but will most likely have to work.
