I'm with you, Glenn.  Like all the others have said, and K8YSE illustrated
with that map, ND9M's road trip was huge.  I didn't get him in every grid
he visited that I have on my "need" list, but I was able to get some off that
list.  Work got in the way for me also, and not being close to home for
some of Jim's stops meant I missed a bunch.  I did get a few when I was
down in Mexico last month, which will help toward a satellite VUCC award
from there.  :-)

Now how does Jim top this trip?  So many grids and states in one trip.
Unless I win a lottery jackpot, I know I won't be making a trip like that
anytime in the next 20 or 25 years.  Thanks for playing radio so much
while you were on the road, Jim!  Now I need to get my QSL request
in the mail for all those grids...
