I took this picture on HWY 259 going to Tyler.

I sent this into ARRL but it never made it to the QST.

(oh well)

I took this picture somewhere in Deep West Texas.

Loading up to camping !

Taking the scooter was a good idea. Allowed us local transportation without

having to disconnect the trailer. Besids, It was fun riding it out in the dessert.

Camping in Big Bend includes Ham Radio!
