Codger, Roundup won't happen because we have a wedding to attend Labor Day Weekend (unless that changes in the next few days and I can sign up :grin)

I hope Summit was good for you! We will plan a trip soon!
-Chris
Hi Chris. Roundup registration closes 7/31. Summit was great and the San Juan Mtns unbelievable and breathtaking. You have to experience it in person to appreciate the magnitude of it all. Compare elevations - we crossed passes at 13k to 14k ft. The highest point in TN is only 5k ft. What surprised me was that about half the attendees were first-timers. You owe it to yourself (and so does @Lumber_Jack) to attend a Summit. I guarantee you'll be glad you did.

I really am dying to go. Maybe next year! I will be at the Appalachian Toyota Roundup. @Codger are you camping at the roundup?

My son lives in Knxvl so I'm prone to bum off him rather than camping. I'd consider splitting a bunk cabin if that was an option for a few guys.


If say they're probably sold out at this point. My wife will be at the in-laws in Knoxville so I may go there too. It depends on how hot it is I guess

For those heading East for Roundup on Thursday, Sept 1. There is a caravan meeting at the Pilot Travel station 921 Murfreesboro Road, Lebanon Tennessee @ 1Pm Central time. This is Exit 238 on I-40 south of the interstate. A couple guys from Memphis are coming through and meeting there. Anyone interested in the convoy, just show up and look for the FJ's. I personally cannot participate, but will be at the Round-Up Friday morning.

Anyone have a suggestion for where to get my CB radio tuned up? I just installed a Cobra 29LTD with a 3' firestik. I don't have an SWR meter, and was hoping to get some help since I'm newer to radios.

I can do it. I have an SWR meter I borrowed and never returned :D

Awesome! I'm pretty slammed at work so I'll shoot you an email for meeting up later this month. On a positive side, I'm on I-24 a lot, and based on this morning, I'm not too far off on my settings. Heard lots of angry potty mouth truckers that made me lolz.

Yeah sounds good. Keep and eye out for a good open space without buildings or power lines. It will help to not have interference. Be careful running the radio too much without tuning the antennae. A high SWR can damage the radio

@Lumber_Jack any word on the next local monthly dinner for those of us not on the book of faces. Now that I got this thing I guess I should come meet the local FJ gang. :)

Heck yah man. We haven't picked a place yet but it'll be the first Thursday in December. Hopefully it rains before then and I can get off forest fire duty

Hey @Lumber_Jack, thx for the offer. What happened with the decals? Did you ever get more?


No not yet but I think we'll move forward with some new ones soon. Maybe similar design as the patch
