    Field day has been popular for many years.

    Sure - a lot of folks only do a radio picnic when the ARRL tells them to :rolleyes:

    I prefer to do it my own way from time to time as well

    My wife and I are going to do a 40th Anniversary weekend in our teardrop trailer RV on the Solar Eclipse totality path in MO and plan to operate as part of the special event discussed in QST this month. It will be like an extended picnic.

    After my field day experience I rather enjoy getting out with my dog for a night or two of camping with a portable rig. I've been out twice since field day and hope to do a few more.
    My wife does not like camping or amateur radio....so she would not be joining me. She gets upset if I check my cell phone on a picnic and her idea of roughing it is a 3 star hotel.....we do have a similar wine and cheese back pack....it gets used quite a bit but.
