Thank you John!!!

Years ago I met John Avery working on the telephone system up here. He was so kind to give me his cell number anytime I need AT&T help. We’ve spoken quite a few times over the past couple decades. This afternoon I was out in the clouds, crawling along State Park Road. See photo below with the low wire that had pulled free off a pole. It was hanging across the road, only about 8 feet off the ground. It was going to be dark soon and I can only imagine what might happen if a van or big bus heading to the Christian Conference Center drove by. Gave John a call, told him about the wire and invited him to pop in for hot soup. Glad he turned around and came back up to get here so quickly. He told the story of a similar situation in San Diego when an bus drove through a low wire and it took off the air conditioning units along the top.

We had such a nice visit. He mentioned one tower on Crestline that has a communication system for Delta Airlines, Highway Patrol and FBI. Another area serves Homeland Security, Sheriff and Police Communication. The big dish across from our house now bounces off Pala Casino to bring all our phone service up. So interesting.

Thank you John! We appreciate your commitment to Palomar these 23 years. You’ll welcome to drop in for soup, anytime!!!
