Battery door? Airplane?

Post by mjirving » September 16th, 2018, 7:14 am

Anyone know what this goes to? I found it on the White River Glacier yesterday on Mt Hood.

Thanks for finding that. I think it fell off the MOG I was test driving last week. :)

Nice...that would be right at home up there! Interesting that searching on MOG and even “test driving mog” didn’t bring it up. Mercedes certainly did the trick.

Oops, I think you mean White River Glacier. There's a White Water Glacier on Rainier, and one on Jefferson, I think. (You mentioned elsewhere that you were on Hood.)

Could that be from a snowmobile? I spotted a big piece piece of fiberglass once high on Adams, and thought it was aircraft (because of course its appearance from a distance was consistent with painted aluminum) but up close I realized it had to be from a snowmobile.

You are correct! I meant White River Glacier. It was definitely aluminum...had those rivets that are consistent with aircraft too.

Thanks for the correction...I've been a little sleep deprived. :lol:
