What are your thoughts? Head up Saturday morning back down Sunday? Our realtor is supposed to be taking the weekend off so we might not have any viewings this weekend, but we do have a list of houses to check out at some point. Hoping that happens Friday though.

The way things are going, We may be able to head out early afternoon tomorrow. Still don't know where we're heading but our plans are to keep it to a reasonable distance, get high enough to beat the heat and be in the clear RF wise.

We could reach you buy the CO connection or cell, if we have coverage, and let you know where we land or if you could leave Fri we could hang back and wait for you and head up together

Bring your 857, power supply and analyzer.

Still working on getting showings tomorrow morning so probably best to assume I'll come up Saturday.

Copy on the gear. Does it have to be the 857, filters swap maybe? Only ask because the IC-7000/AH-4 combo is at hand.

Hold the presses, we were just offered the use of a private ranch 10 mins from pueblo. Further than I was planning to drive but it would save us a few hours of looking for a spot to set up. Details to follow.

I was able to secure the use of 80 acres of private land SW of Lake Pueblo State Park that backs up to San Isabel NF. Drive time is 2 hrs or less. Plenty of elbow room, no jerking around trying to find a place to set up, no restrictions on generators. The spot is on Newton road that runs south off Hwy 96 just west of Lake Pueblo State Park. No facilities (bring plenty of water). Talk-in will be via ColoConn and QSY to 460 when close.

I will check the maps in the morning, but expect me Saturday morning at this point. I will be in touch via ColCon regardless.

Is this just Saturday, or is it Sunday too? I cannot make Saturday, but Sunday is a strong possibility.

@Matt, Field Day runs till 1200 (noon) Sunday. Get there at Oh-dark-30 and you'll be able to catch some hot east coast action on 6 &10 meters.

Down and dirty directions; South on 25 to Pueblo -> East on Hwy 96 -> go past Lake Pueblo State Park -> Turn Left (south) on Newton Rd.

Addy is 1372 Newton road but there is no house or mail box w/ a number. Were heading out now and I'll post up GPS co-ordinates when I get down there.

I'll monitor the CoConn as there is direct LOS to Pike's Peak from there.

Bring Plenty of water as there is none available on site.

Isn't the state park west of town? Lake Pueblo State Park anyway.
