This run almost didn't happen. Mark K0EJ and daughter Maegan had other obligations this weekend so I was without a team. But previous mobile QSO partner, Gary K4VIG was able to free up some time and we enlisted the help of first-time multi-op mobiler K1GU. Ned had planned a solo set up/operate/tear down operation across a few nearby counties but opted to join us for a different type of adventure. So we were set. A route was laid out to cover up to 26 counties if things fell into place. Our setup this year consisted of an Icom 756proIII at 100w, laptop, Winkeyer and two hustler antennas mounted on the roof of my 2016 Dodge Durango. The operating position in the Durango was comfortably snug but entrance and egress was not quick, especially for us seasoned ops. This made operator changes a bit slow but the pileups didn't seem to mind. We did manage to cover 25 counties opting near the end to go to rare Polk county before Bradley. Time expired on us about 2 miles from the Polk/Bradley county line. An unforseen traffic jam in Monroe County may have delayed us just enough to miss Bradley. Next year. This route was a bit over 500 miles which is pretty ambitious for a 9-hour contest. The pileups - amazing and almost non-stop. Many of our Thursday night NS Sprinters called in, most notably: WD0T,K7SS,N6ZFO,W6SX,W7OM,N6RO,W9RE,K4BAI,N8EA,N4DW and K8MR. Many other friends also followed us such as: VE3KZ,N9CK,K6MR,K1GQ,W1WBB,WN4AFP,DL3DXX,K9YC,N8BJQ and NW0M. Thanks to everyone for the QSO's and making this so much fun. See you in the next one. 73, Ted W4NZ for Gary K4VIG and Ned K1GU
