As some (many?) of you may have already seen on Twitter, or figured out if you listened on some passes today, I had to cancel my plans for this weekend. I had arrived in Show Low AZ Friday evening, and then received a call from home about a family issue that forced me to turn around and drive right back to Phoenix. Things are now better at home, but I was not able to attend this morning's White Mountain Hamfest nor follow through on my plans to visit different NPOTA sites this afternoon and tomorrow. I apologize to those who were hoping to work me from those locations (and rarely heard grids).
I don't know if or when I can make it out to Petrified Forest National Park again. It's about a 4-hour drive from Phoenix. My plans for next weekend will now include a Sunday stop in the Flagstaff area, so I can try to operate from NPOTA sites in that area - including Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments north of Flagstaff. I still plan on attending the Prescott Hamfest next Saturday (11 June), which will be at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott campus. I'll write more about that hamfest, and more details about my post-hamfest plans, in the next few days.
