Going Offline

For the first time in the 4 1/2 year history of this blog, I'm going on vacation.  I've had some biz trips that have kept me offline and one trip that kept me away, but those were never more than a week or so.  I'm taking off for 12 days tomorrow morning.  If all goes according to plan, I'll be back the first weekend of September, 9/6-7. 

We're going off to places we've never been, do some day hiking, and see some things we've never seen.  Away from the same old places and same old sights.  Pretty much every place has WiFi these days, and we won't be tent camping, but I really doubt I'll have the time to do much of anything here.

Y'all enjoy the next two weeks and we'll see you on the Far Side!


  1. Way overdue then.
    Have a great time!

  2. Hope you are able to leave sunny Florida and see some more of this once-great country while you can. Places like Carlsbad Caverns, many of the National parks (Crater Lake, Arches, Zion, the Grand Canyon, Glacier, etc.) Even closer stuff, like the Blue Ridge Mountains, Luray Caverns, and such.

    Have a great time, and be safe.

  3. Have fun. I operated HF/6 mobile for first time last June. Had fun except for the ignition noise. Figured it out after I got home. :-(
    (It was too much antenna coax in the car.)


  4. Thanks, all. That means a lot to me.

    RegT, that's a pretty good list of places we've been so far - except for Crater Lake and Arches.

    Terry, Mrs.Graybeard worked a 10m contest from the car once during the last sunspot peak and had a blast. Couple of hour drive to Tampa netted about 20 countries worked with an FT-817 and a CB whip!

  5. Over 4 years? yep, you've earned the time off. :)

    Drive safe, and take lots of pictures, you know this can be a rough crowd if they don't get optical input. ;)

  6. I know, I'm late to the party. :-(

    ENJOY - or rather,
    I hope you enjoyed it!


  7. Hmm... CB whip?

    Oh, yeah - and have fun!
