Noise is horrible, no way we could chat unless I installed the radio in my truck and that isn't going to happen in a week. Next time we'll make it work.

I turned mine on for a few minutes and got two reports from my back yard. Will is home now - but is Shrek?? Thanks for setting this up, Gary.

Has Leigh mentioned anything about APRS tracking? I don't know if he has had a chance to get it working. It's unlikely there will be any coverage in the area where we'll be since a map on aprs.org is showing a big blank space there. I did find four repeaters that should cover much of the area we will be in.

Gary is your noise on 40 meters still bad. I don't know if you want to try another schedule but I'm game. This weekend is ARRL Field Day so Saturday night is probably a bad time. 7180 KHz or the next clear spot below that at 2.5 KHz intervals. Maybe 7:00 PM since the sun doesn't set until 8:45 or so.

No problem, Gary. I understand the noise is really frustrating and not a lot you can do about it.

Here's a link to Leigh's tracking page on aprs.fi: http://aprs.fi/?call...&timerange=3600 Please add it to the APRS links page. Thanks!

All loaded and ready to go. Will's on the road and we will be too in a few minutes. Unfortunately, Roy will not make it due to illness. Maybe next year.

Stay tuned ....

Great to hear Oregon Trail Blazers. Especially Dismal Swamp = 0. :)

Eating breakfast right now and enjoying the pictures thus far and updates.

Saw the night camp fire beverage there! :D Nice.

SPOT tracking is looking good. Also received SPOT Checking-in last night that all is well.

Enjoy the rest of the trip.

I've been following Leigh on APRS. I'm finding to be a quicker loading site, but also less clutter overall than Spot.

back to reality

at Mom's in shady cove, oregon

very tired,,,, after shower and debrief family back at home, time to turn in

long drive home tomorow, pictures to follow later

I would like to say the trip was an overall success, great weather, excellent food, scenery, trail breaking, tree clearing, twists and turns, lost luggage :eek: (more to follow), crack in the ground, Dericks Cave, volcanic areas, potential new camping sites, etc.........

Brian, simply your trail leadership is second to none, thank you.... We all have so much to learn from your example.... :)

Leigh, your trail and camping skills are very sharp..... look forward to our next adventure and free guinness ;)

Gary,

Not sure what happened with my SPOT device. Good news is we had redundancy in the form of two other SPOT's and my ARPS.

ARPS seemed to work well for a couple of days and then had trouble finding other stations to hop from. I did get an Airplane one day:cool:

One day when I see you it would be great if you could take a look at my settings and see if they are optimum.

Thanks!

Back in SF. I had a great time, Will, Nancy and our fearless leader Brian were great traveling and camping companions.

We defeated the Dismal Swamp, well actually the Forest Service had repaired the trail in the areas we had been stuck with new culvert pipes and we had no snow to deal with. We found the spot David and I camped on the snow and visited the area the rest of the group spent the night.

Unfortunately I left earlier than the rest of the group as I found out yesterday afternoon that my Dog has a Mass in her chest between inside her ribcage. We thought we would have more info from the Vet today and wanted to be home to help and scratch her belly. Should know more tomorrow.

Anyhow I left the group around 3 or 4 PM yesterday and got a few hours of the journey behind me and camped just off Highway 97 in a US Forest Campground a few miles north of Klamath.

It made for an easy drive today. Dealing with dog, unpacking and catching up with the family

I will post some pictures tomorrow so you can all see what you missed.:D

Safe arrival home about 1630 after a long day driving and some shopping. Thanks Will and Leigh for the great trip. You guys are awesome trail companions. Nancy and I had a great time! And thanks to all who were glued to our SPOT and APRS web pages and following our progress.

Over the next few days I'll be removing the 1/16 inch of dust from the inside of the truck and the 1/8 inch of mud from the outside of the truck, writing a trip report and posting some pictures. A short summary:

Long drive,
ate well,
conquered Dismal Swamp,
moved trees,
drove a variety of easy to moderate trails,
got lost a few times,
stopped by more trees than we could move (again),
found spectacular views,
ate ice cream,
discovered new and interesting places to explore,
long drive home.

:D:D

Safe at home but not without a detour

Left Shady Cove 8:00AM with noice in front end. On the way home, I had to make an unscheduled stop at Cerrones for Shrek. (3:30PM) Actually I limped in and just made it. Front drive shaft siezed.... Frank made a quick swap with a DII shaft, noise instantly gone. However I decided to leave Shrek for a few days to tune up for the CON..... Fortunately Frank was finishing up with my LR3, so I swapped out my camping gear and headed home in luxury and comfort... Made it home around 6:30PM. Just finished showing family slide show of trip. I plan on posting lots of pics in the next couple of days. My son can't wait for me to take him camping. ;) He kept wanting to see pictures of Dericks Cave.........

Some pictures from the trip. WE thought it was going to be cold one night so we prepared a bonfire.:D

Prize if anyone (other than Brian and Will) can tell me what the 4th and 5th pictures are.
