Really would have liked to have had some on-air time this weekend, but it wasn’t to be.
Fantastic area of the country, the Keweenaw Peninsula!
The truck isn’t setup for Mobile HF, and with all of us traveling it would have been unrealistic to have spent much time on the air mobile even if it were.
There was also the full alertness needed to avoid the herds of deer grazing wherever the snow melt had thinned the ground cover of snow enough to allow the first tips of buds to pop out.
In the Keweenaw the snow on the side of some streets easily was six-foot plus high, despite the start of the melt.
All in all a wonderful trip and though it meant missing a contest, it was well worth it!
