Things have been getting snowy, windy and cold up here lately, but it 
looks like the weather will be nice enough to squeeze in one more grid 
expedition before winter really sets in.  I'm hoping to cover 11 grids 
in 3 days as follows (grids are listed in the order in which I hope to 
activate them):

Day 1, Thursday Nov 24 (Thanksgiving):  FN16, FN06 and EN96

Day 2, Friday Nov 25:  FN07, EN97, EN98 and FN08

Day 3, Saturday Nov 26:  FN17, FN18, FN19 and FN09

Note that 11 grids in 3 days means I won't be spending a lot of time in 
any one grid.  I'll try and operate from grid boundaries where 
possible.  This usually isn't a problem in summer, but when snow has 
been plowed off the road then there often isn't room to pull over and 
operate safely.

I will be posting tentative schedules shortly.  Tentative because 
everything depends on cooperation from the weather.

Hope to work you in a few days.  Follow me on Twitter @VE3HLS for updates.
