Congrads!

I see five people have already looked up your callsign on QRZ.COM. I was one of the five.

Edit: Now (Wednesday, Dec 6) it's up to 11, since I posted this here yesterday!

My HF rig is a Yaesu FTdx1200.

I also have a Yaesu FT-60R FM transceiver here, but I have never even turned it on during this entire trip.

My last stop was Big Bend, Texas. I am now in the RV park in Whites, NM (right at the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns ).

Anyway, on the way back, I am thinking about a stop over in Pahrump. Sometime after Xmas but before 2018.

I have an electric motorcycle with me to get around on for after this RV is parked.

I notice there are many in this forum who live in Pahrump.

Do you think we can all meet at a restaurant somewhere in Pahrump for a meal? I will pay the bill for all who show up! That includes non-hams as well, of course.

The exact date and time can be set later.

I think there might be one or two of us available to lunch with ya when you get here Don.

Just give us as much advanced notice as possible so we can clear our extremely busy ROF (Retired Old Farts) calendars!

There are several Pahrumpoids here who are Hams, myself, Geo, Lonerider, Tophog, Dusty, IrishMike, Iweb, just to name a few.

I would be interested in meeting up with you assuming my ROF calendar is clear that day.

I can make it any day or several different days, to meet different forum members. I have no plans on when to be home.

When I once get there, you guys can pick your own days, if we cannot all get together at the same time.

I assume there are some RV parks around there that I can stay in and use my E-bike to get around.

I have an electric motorcycle with me (A 2017 Zero DS ZF 6.5) to get around on. Light enough to carry on my RV hitch on this RV.

I will leave here in the morning, but I will take my time getting there, as there will be other places I will stop at on the way there.
