So I tooled on down from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Tucson, Arizona to visit with family. Had a great time. On the way back, I viewed the most beautiful Sunset in Albuquerque where I stayed the night. Northern New Mexico to Colorado Springs portion had snow and a little black ice, but nothing I couldn’t handle. The hard part was passing the snowplow trucks because they make a thick dense fog behind them where a normal size lower car cannot see anything in front, or the road either. So they are a bit tricky to pass. But two of them I got by, and two of them eventually turned off onto an exit after a little while.
It was good seeing family again. I don’t plan on taking any more trips until after March, so will stay put for a while.
My first post from a longtime blogger in other venues. Discovered Hamsphere after quite a while away from radio – with no television presently, it is something to listen to and keep contact with the outside world. I’ve already had a few QSOs as of Dec 18, 2012.
I didn’t get back on before Christmas as things at home were very rushed and then traveled to be with family for Christmas. My grandson’s Christmas present was influenza. For a while after that, I haven’t been able to talk a lot without getting hoarse. It’s getting better and I should be back on in a few more days.
