I have registered the meeting titled above held in Seattle this summer. The site is here.
I was told to attend it by Steve W7QC last spring, I guess. My answer was that I would go there if I could retire by this spring. It came true. So far, everything is going on straightly for retirement. I owe much to Steve, Bill W7GKF and Alan AC2K who are preparing this event and eagerly asked me to go there.
It has been a dream for me to see old friends before we get so old that I could not recognize them. It will be a reality soon this summer. When I told Joe KC0VKN I had been a shy boy, he was laughing at me. But it is true. I hope they won't treat me like a special guest or something.
I and my wife have spent very busy lives as doctors and could not travel abroad together yet. This will be our 1st ever trip. She looks forward that so much. She has already got the passport. She only hopes there will not be only ham nuts like me there. They say Seattle in summer is a great place to visit. Both of us are looking forward this trip very much. We are planning go down to the Bay area or LA. To Az as well if the time permits.
Only sorrow is that I haven't heard anything from Gary W5ZL who promised me to see each other at the meeting after finishing his chemo protocol for his cancer. I hope he and his wife Leslie would surprise us showing up there. I also worry about Gary W0CGR who has been under treatment for the advanced cancer as well. He could be there also if he did not develop that problem.
So see you in eye balls this summer, friends, either old or new.
