Summerfest with Outdoor Adventure USA is coming!!
If you haven't been to summerfest it's great event, the trial runs are pretty small and is with good people.
This year we're camping near a few gun ranges for those that shoot. the end of dishpan springs isn't too far from camp, white mountain isn't far and neither is john bull. It's a good centralized spot.
And of course you can get familiar with ham radio as we'll be operating for an event called 'Field Day'
