This is the north bound component of my trip to the MI Mini in Midland, MI. I will be visiting with my son in Moline, IL Monday night. My route was determined by a desire to have self credit for three awards: Master Platinun, 4th Time, and BINGO III, but there are a lot of good countiies between them. Generally, I will putting out counties on the fly with my wife logging. Generally, I am planning on making SSB contacts only, but I wll do CW on request. My routine will be 40m, 20m, and 17m on SSB. Occasionally, I may try 15m. If I have internet, my wife will try to post me for every county/band/mode. I will watch for text messages to 706-302-0725. However, it get busy sometimes, and I might ignore them.

NOTE: I am attempting to pickup self credits for 12 QSOs in counties I need for the Mobile Platinum Award on this trip. I have marked these counties with a "P" in the counties listed below. If you have the Master Gold award, plaese listen for me and try to contact me. I will probably not leave a county until I get a valid Mobile Gold contact.
