Next Saturday, September 29th, 2018 is the scheduled day for our Taum Sauk Mt. Fall Adventure. This a single day event during which a few of the club members are planning to go to the top of Taum Sauk Mt. and set up a portable radio environment to see how many contacts we can make. Those currently planning to attend are John McReynolds, Allan Sieker and Bill Higgins but everyone is invited to come along.
This event is strictly weather permitting and the current forecast looks like no precipitation, about 80 degrees and overcast conditions. I don’t believe there are many amenities at the top of the mountain, so if you’d like to come along, plan to bring something on which to sit and potentially something on which to set your radio. You should also plan to bring food and drinks. Current travel plans are to leave the Sullivan area early enough to arrive on the mountain around mid morning. I would imagine we’ll stay till mid to late afternoon and definitely leave before sundown. I believe we can probably set up near the parking area, so we shouldn’t have to transport equipment very far.
Having never been to Taum Sauk before, I’m really looking forward to this outing! I’m sure the view alone is worth the trip. If we can get set up and make some contacts while we are there, then so much the better! Come along and join the fun!!
If you are interested in attending, please just send me message through the Contact Us page on this web site so we can coordinate plans with everyone.
Hope to see you there!!!
