Well the rising tide and the last chance to cross what once was a shallow channel were quickly closing on one another. Time was running out. The dogs in their exhuberance had already swam ahead. That told me the crossing was deep now. My hunting partner had crossed ealier. He waited on the other side it would still be below the top of my waders. I eased in slowly and a few carful steps the water was up to my knees, then another step an and the flow of the tide was pressing against my waste. I told myself to keep moving, no turning back now. There is maybe two, at best three inches before it will be over the the top of the chest waders. I been here before, both literally and figuritively. I've reached the middle of the channel and moving quiclkly. The neoprene waders give me a sense of boyancy and I know the water level is near the top of them. A half a dozen more steps and I pull myself out of the channel. Water is draining out of the pockets as I am standing on the gravel peninsula with warm sun on my face. It is a comfort to wet hands and forarms. Relaxing briefly and reflecting on the crossing I jolted from my comfort zone as Ripple starts to yelp. She a few feet from my hunting partner. I give a "here" command. She sprints to close the distance towards us. As she passes by my hunting he grabs her by the collar strap and in an instant he has freed her from her torment just as pull the soaked transmiter out of my cargo pocket of hunting jacket. Fortunately she responds to a level two on the Pro 500 were I have it dialed in for her. She was pretty clingy for the first few hundred yards as we walked the mile or so back to the truck. It took a few gentle release commands from me and soon she was back to herself, independent and exploring the ditches and marsh edges and channels on side of road as we hiked the trail back.
Now I'm thinking I will stop trying to blow the residual water out with burst of breath and try dispacing the remaining water with WD 40 and then using compressded to bring the G2 Pro 500 back to a safe and fully operational condition.
Anyone on RTF with experience in restoring the transmitter to how it should function?
