1st attempt at ping tunneling worked.

I used my home network and 3 boxes in VMware.

The ptunnel server (ubuntu10.04)

The ptunnel client i(ubuntu 10.04)

The remote host running openssh (windows XP SP2)

server command: ptunnel -c <network device> -v <verbosity> -f <logfile> -u -x <passwd>

# ptunnel -x pass

client command: ptunnel -p <ptunnel server ip> -lp <local listening port anything> -da <remote host destination> -dp <destination port> -c <network device> -v <verbosity> -f <logfile> -u -x <passwd must be the same as that entered into server>

# ptunnel -p -lp 8000 -da -dp 22 -x pass

# ssh -p 8000 localhost

I do not know much about this former mill site. I spoke with the present owner. He mentioned that the "barn" structure was not part of the milling complex. He also mentioned that there had been a significant village at the site but many of the houses had been torn down. Not a lot is left but foundations and ruins.

**** The weather today was a cool 2 C. My brother and I parked at Andrew Haydon park and walked toward the war museum. The trail had a lot of snow cover. Lots of wild life including a flock of ducks. Total distance  13.5 km in 2.5 hours.  We need to complete from the war museum to Richmond landing next time before we continue towards Kingston.

**** May 1st, Andrew Haydon Park to Robertson road. The weather was clear to cloudy, the temperature was 20C. total hike was 10 kms. The trail was wet in places.

About a month ago i went to see a Truck Camper out in central Ontario. It was a camper made by Coleman. I had never seen anything like it and unfortunately at the time I could not find anything on the web about these particular campers. They were made by Coleman in the ealry 1980's (i had found the design patent for it)

Also here is another site featuring a similar camper

So i have since found picture for it. So for anyone looking for pictures for this type of camper look no further.

We visited the ghost settlement of Newfoundout where pioneers tried to seek out a living in the opeongo mountains. They eventually abandoned their farms and houses. The view from their abandoned ruins is beautiful.
