I am planning a mobile rover operation in the central portion of the lower peninsula for this contest. I would like to see other possible mobile rover stations post their plans for the upcoming contest.

As I am new to mobile contesting, any tips and hints would be appreciated.

Well Durff,remember to stop when the signal is RED and "Try" to behave yourself for a change! Also add a little more to that dull thing you call a web site.What goes round comes round remember?
Best of luck in the contest,I know you will do well if you can keep the car on the road. Say hi to all 3 members of the Wyoming club.
