See you guys at meadow knob. Not sure when I'll get there, but it shouldn't be too late.

As of a few weeks ago, I spoke to him, he seriously doubted he was going to be able to get off work to go.

You go with 1 because your radio always turns on defaulted to 1. 1 and 40 get like 1/2 the range as the channels in the middle. That's the reason 19 is the "trucker channel".

Jamie, if you can text JD you might get a faster answer. He might not have time to check in.
If anyone has JD's cell, they might want to PM it to Jamie. I looked for it but couldn't find it.

Where about are you at? What broke?

Good trip so far. Hope the rest have a good night tonight. I split with them at about 4. I think I've got some good snippets for a short video. We'll see what I can cook up.
