Day Seven .......
Guess what? ....it rained all day again. I'm getting use to this "summer weather" I've been driving through.
The worst part of the day was driving the Salmo-Creston Summit. It's 1781m at the top, and it's a heck of a drive to get up there! The actual worst part was the drive down. It's an 8% grade downhill for 15km, and then a further 6% grade for 6 Km. My brakes sure took a kicking today!
A quiet day radio wise, once again I had no contacts on any of the 8 repeaters I called into, nor did I get a response on .52 simplex.
My night spot tonight is Grand Forks and tomorrow afternoon I should be at my destination.
