Another Worked All States Band

Category: Uncategorized • Comments: Comments Off

After completing the 5-Band (80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, and 10m) Worked All States award, I felt the strong need to do one more band.  So I chose the 17m band for this effort.  Approximately half of the states were worked before the Colorado trip and the last half were finished on 21 July 2013.  That completed working and confirming all the states on six amateur radio bands.  The close-in states on the higher bands (20m-10m) proved to be very difficult, but getting WAS on multiple bands has always been a goal of mine.

Here is a picture of the 5-Band Worked All States plaque, with the 17 meter endorsement added, for a total of 6-Band Worked All States:

June 2013 – Andrew’s and Katie’s Wedding

Category: Uncategorized • Comments: Comments Off

Carolyn and I drove to Colorado for the wedding, which was held on 20 June 2013 at Della Terra in Estes Park, Colorado.  Della Terra borders on the Rocky Mountain National Park.  The wedding  and reception was very nice, as was the rehearsal dinner and the barbecue dinner the day the wedding.  Here is a picture of Andrew and Katie just after their wedding:

Before the wedding, we went to Colorado Springs and toured the Gorden of the Gods, took the Cog Rail to the top of Pike’s Peak, and went to the Zoo.

After the wedding, we went through drove the entire highway through Rocky Mountain National Park – going from Estes Park to Grand Lake.   One of the most beautiful drives I have ever made.  Actually since Carolyn drove, I should rephrase it to “One of the most beautiful rides I have ever made”.

Colorado is really a wonderful place for a wedding and even a better place to visit.
