	I can't believe I spent so much time on SSB, but that's where the action
was for this one, and NN5ZZ was intended to be a SSB call....my primary
objective was to provide a Texas station for the non-Texas stations to work.
I've done the mobile roving bit in the past, but I must admit I had fun with
this one....it was a constant run, limited only by this old man's need for
regular breaks.  I got most of my Texas counties on 40M midafternoon
Saturday .... otherwise would have struck out.  N5KC was 30 miles north in
Armadillo County, and I never heard him once.

Looking forward to next year...

Don, N5LZ
