We can treat this like a meet and greet as well as the test session. Besides, I could spend an entire day just browsing in Bas Pro as it is... :lol:

Since March marked our one year anniversary we can also treat this a sort of a anniversary celebration as well. ;)
BPS will set aside one row of the parking in front of the store for our vehicles. For those who attended our last event at BPS, you may remember that we had also been able to reserve this same spot (but it was two rows at that time). We are very fortunate to have this space reserved, as weekends are the busiest time for BPS. There should be considerably more traffic, compared to our first event, since this will be a weekend.

Does this mean I have to wash my truck and be on my best behavior?

We could carpool... but you'd have to stay the duration of the event. ;)

I'm having a hell of a time finding the time to study for the test. I'll be in Vegas for two days next week then in Mexicali all of the following week. Hopefully I'll get time while in Mexicali to run through the tests some more.

I just wanted to give this thread a bump. Even if you aren't interested in testing you can at least stop by and say hello. ;)

Larry:

If you are able to get some rigs running with aprs, you may be able to view our progress in the Parashant. The best way (and maybe the only way) to see us will be through http://www.aprs.fi . If you want to set this up, I can provide you with the direct link to see the position of each person in the group.

Using the zoom feature, you can get a good perspective of where we are. The Google maps are surprisingly accurate.
