37 RVs showed up yesterday and are in the RV SVC NET section of this year’s Hamcation, hosted by Orlando Area Radio Club. Yesterday we had a big opening social beside KC2RAR’s rig, followed by some groups heading out for dinner at local eateries.
Today we’re looking forward to a nice noon potluck, and we’ll have to run around to burn enough calories to prepare for this afternoon’s social at 4:00 p.m. eastern time. Today and tomorrow we may start seeing tailgaters displaying their goods and they’ll be out in full force Saturday. The vendors start showing at noon Friday and will show through Sunday at 2:00 p.m. eastern.
In between, we’ll make a trip to Skycraft to shop for all those great, hard to find little electronics things as well as wire and other stuff. You know it’s not so much what you need as what you should have on hand in case a need arises — right?
We’re looking forward to a great Hamcation and our first Ham-a-rally in this new format.
