    K3IMC - Tuesday 10/02/2018 to Wednesday 10/10/2018 using SSB and CW
    I am making a trip from my home to the National Convention in Kansas City. Unfortunatelly, my car is very noisy when I am driving, so it is hard to work station on the fly. I really have to stop when I plan to run a county.

    The trip to Kansas City is a long one, with me driving 1200 miles in three days. It will be fast and probably I will not regularily stop. Most of the travel will be on intersates. I will have the following bands and mode: 40 ssb, 30 cw, 20 ssb and cw and 17 ssb and cw. If you need 40 cw, I will run on the 40 ssb frequency. I will only run 17m on request. I will also be transmitting my location via APRS froun at aprs.fi. My call there will be K3IMC-9.

    On request, I may be willing to deviate from my route once a day to get a last county. My cell and text number is is 706-302-0725.

    Oct 2, Tuesday
    This is a big driving day from my home in LaGrange, GA, to Paduch, KY. to visit my son. We are driving about 425 miles, and will not be stopping much, if at all. My route is basically mostly interstaes with green stamp counties. The roue is via I75 to I24. If you really need any counties along this route, email me, and I will try to stop.

    Oct 3, Wednesday
    This is another big driving day for me. We are driving 405 miles from Paducah, KY, to Moline, IL, to visit my son for dinner. We are drivintg 405 miles, almost all on intersates. The route is basically I24 to I57 to Ii4 to I55 to I74 through central and west central IL. If you really need any counties along this route, email me, and I will try to stop.

    Oct 4, Thursday
    This is the final big driving day to complete the trip to Kansas City. We will be leaving Moline, IL, via I80 to I55 thru cental IA and northwestern KS. We will be driving 375 miles, and do not plan to stop much. If you really need any counties along this route, email me, and I will try to stop.
