W6GMT Travel plans for the trip east.

I will leave Bakersfield on Monday the 17th of April. I will be active
On AO-27 AND SO-50 only

I have both my 857 and 847 mounted in the truck. The loops have 
worked in the past for the FM birds I will stop for all passes. At 
night or a place with a lot on interest I will put up my ELK log.

  We will head east on I40 stopping in Chambers AZ (DM55) for the 
first night. Tuesday AM I will work east to Albuquerque then north on 
I25 to the small town of  Trinidad CO there I will branch off on back 
roads heading for a stop in Brush CO this will put me in the rare 
grids of DM87,DM88 and DM89 plus brush is in DN80.  Wednesday I will 
head east to North Platte NE then North to Valentine NE that would 
put me in DN91 and DN92 for the afternoon passes.

There seems to be a lot of interest in SD so I will spend the day. I 
am open to requests for grids in the eastern half of the state. I 
plan to spend the night in Redfield SD (EN04).  Friday I will head 
for Fargo ND (EN16) and the Red River Radio Amateurs Ham Fest. Sunday 
the final leg to Marcell and my Summer QTH.

I will send QSL cards one for each state worked with grids noted.
