The Hiders Story
WB6JPI Bob's Story
N6AIN Deryl's Story
WA6RJN Doug's Story
I've read everybody's story, and I've had e-mail messages to clarify
some sign in questions. It seems that of the three offical teams That
made it to T1, Jippy had the best miles. Even though he went the long
way to get there. Coming in the back side had the benefit of not
getting all of those confusing signals, that the others got. So at this
time, I must congratulate the very effective team of WB6JPI of winning
the Meatheat hunt of Sept 27, 2003.
Bob signed into T3 with his blood, later when Deryl was at T3, he heard
a large animal (chipmuck) size, sneeze. He felt that he was being sized
up for dinner. I think it was a bear, that had gotten a wiff of Jippy's
blood, and was lying in wait for the next victim. As usual, the hide
didn't go as we had planned, but it followed the basic idea. Steve's
location was not found, when he went back, he found several tire
tracks that turned around before, going down that trail. Before trying
to use the same idea, in the future, Jippy tells me that the simplex
repeater was illegal, and I will have to go before a court of law to
defend myself. Me, I think if it is illegal, the rules should be
changed for us T hiders.
Hope everybody had a good time, and got home at a reasonable hour.
