Stan, I will be watching for you too! Haven’t been a grid chaser but your efforts have inspired me to jump on the bandwagon!

Unfortunately my radio is still in shop for repair. Hope to see your next trip to CN98 as that's the last one for me to complete WA. Felt really bummed out that I've been off the air since after TDW...

Glad a few got some upgrades out of Daze.

I do hear you.  The minimum travel time for me to get into DN08 is about 4 hours.  So it will take a little more planning than a 1.5 hour jaunt up into CN98.
I’m not saying I’m not going to do it.  I’m just saying it needs to be part of a bigger effort or some other reason to travel to that part of the state, as it’s either an overnight trip, or else it’s a really long day consisting of mostly driving and a little radio.
