Many thanks to Ralph and family for having me over. I thought Murphy started 
early when my cruise control was acting up at the start of a two hour drive, 
but fixed that, whew! Ralph wanted me to do a QRP, but that didn't even last 
one Q, since I didn't get a response, so up to 100w I went. Geez, first five 
hours or so was great, stayed on 1.807 for the whole time. I guess CQing 
does work, hi. Ran across some beacons late in the morning: "3KIZ" @ 1819.06
around 1016z, and "BCK" @ 1812.04 around 1244z - Any QSO points for them, hi.
Found out the EN50 competition when W9SE called me, ouch my ears! Ended up
taking a nap from about 08-0930z...when you are 35 yrs old you just can't party
like you used to! Didn't work enough of those 6 pointers from the West Coast,
what happened? Worked some cool DX: VK6, CO, KV4, C6A, ZF, KH6. I think I
'infected' Ralph with the Stew Perry bug?

Overall, a nice treat to work 160m since no 160m @ home. 

Equip: FT1000MP, Sloper antenna pointed NE, TR v6.46
