Here was our route.
|4.4 miles total|
I did take note of the coordinates for the intersection of the McNeil Trail which are: N 38.74898 degrees by W 104.87457 degrees. The altitude was 8467 feet which means it is about 1000 feet below the true summit of Cheyenne Mountain.

Sorry but no ham radio content to this blog post however, I did get 75 feet of coax in the mail today. I mis-remembered and actually needed 100 feet, so another 25 feet is on order. I am trying to get my 2 meter and 70 Centimeter working better since Lynn and I have been using 2 meters to chat during bad weather when she is making the long trek out to her school. I was never much for two meters or repeaters but I am surprised at how little activity there is. I did have my APRS beacon on today as you can see below.
