Sarah and her college roomates are driving to Seattle. Sarah will be taking her FT-60 handheld. The current program I have is mostly Colorado and Utah repeaters along with CSP etc

Are there key freqs for traveling al;ong I-80 and then up to Seattle that she should have for emergencies?

Here is the current programmed file for her FT-60

I do have the 2008 ARRL repeater book to use as reference.

I'm not a huge fan of the ARRLs software, but when traveling in uncharted territory This (http://www.arrl.org/shop/TravelPlus-For-Repeaters/) has been a useful tool.

My sister lives just outside Seattle in Redmond in case they need anyone local and RS member Howard Tucker also just recently relocated there. He is HAM guy plus and I'll send you his e-mail privately.
I have done that drive. Long, but fun. Rough in winter.
