We tried.  Actually here I worked more TN (20) than MN (17) but that was
a pretty close race.  They certainly were *everywhere* for awhile, wish
one would have made the run across the border to ND<grin>...

Worked a number of TN stations who don't ordinarily make much noise on
CW.  Indeed, I think there were an unusual number of stations on from
*all* states who don't seem to be frequent CW ops.  That's a good thing!

Actually the most worked state here was California (63) followed by
Texas (50) and Florida (42).  It's all up to where the skip goes...
