Lovin' the camp fire.

The small fire, waiting for the big fire.

Our camp at Cascade Lake. The mountains here are so peaceful.

Idaho Rally 2010

Back in cell coverage, after going to Idaho Rally. I took my wife and kids. It was a short family weekend get-a-way. We stayed Friday night at Grandpa's cabin near Idaho City. Saturday Morning we went to our communication location at Alder Creek. I used my Yaesu FT-8800 and FT-80 on this event. We were at the finish line so the kids didn't get to run around much. We had lunch up the hill in the trees with the In-Laws. On Saturday's race, only one car burnt to the ground. Pictures to come if I can get them to upload.

My install today - 2 Yaesu radios

My Yaesu FT-857 and Yaesu FTM-350 in my Honda Prelude. You might notice that I don't have a car stereo in the picture. The FTM-350 has a stereo FM radio, and an audio input. I can listen to my podcasts, while monitoring the frequencies, on the same radio.
Now I need to get the antenna mounts ordered and put on, then I'll actually be able to talk on them.
More pics to come as the work continues.

Dave Ramsey always says "Sell the Car"

I didn't have a car to sell, so today I sold my Motorcycle. The money from my bike took a big chunck out of the debt.
For my next project, I'll be cleaning out my truck and selling it. I have 2 Ham Radios, a CB, amp/sub and my 7 inch in-dash dvd player to pull out. I have a pioneer CD deck that I'm going to put into the truck.
