Claimed score includes 15,000 points for activating 15 counties and 1,000 points for working N5NA and W3DYA in 5 counties each. NO5W and I have teamed up for TQP multi-op mobile entries during each of the past three years. We put together a major route-change for our #4 run, planning to activate the northeastern Texas counties this year. However, Chuck's trusty and well-equipped Nissan Pathfinder decided it wasn't ready to play this time. Chuck contacted me on Wednesday before the contest and said that the vehicle had 'stopped cold' on him while on a local errand. No NO5W/M this year, as Chuck needed to stay home in New Orleans and revive the Pathfinder. The prognosis is still undecided. With this disappointing news, I wasn't sure if I wanted to put together a run on my own. There were quite a few nearby TX counties that showed little or no activation potential, so I re-installed my mobile gear in the truck and cobbled together a part-time route that would cover 15 counties in the area - 4 on Saturday morning and 11 more through the day on Sunday. I really look forward to the annual TQP multi-op mobile run with NO5W each September. It was disappointing to miss it in 2017, but I'm certain that Chuck was even more disappointed at this abrupt schedule change. Although I did enjoy getting out for a while on my own, it isn't nearly as much fun as our team efforts. I look forward to resuming our multi-op mobile tradition next year! Mobile equipment: Icom IC-7100 at 100W, tiny Little Tarheel II antenna, spiral notebook, pen, and 2015 GMC Sierra. Thanks for the QSOs and your support of the TQP this year. 73, Larry K5OT
