Elaine & I used ours the whole time, someone else had one but we never heard from him. I know sometimes the channels are on slightly different freqs, channel 3 on my Cobras is not the same channel 3 on my Audiovox. A few of us had our FRS's at the dragon and they worked well on line of sight, if there was a mountain in between, not so good.

FRS= Family Radio Service AKA walkie talkie

After Action Report

Greetings all

Thanks for coming out on our 4th annual Skyline Run.

Final tally was

20 people, 14 smarts, 2 dragons, one dog (Hi, Java) and one smartkin (thanks Art)

We had a wonderful time cruising thru the mountains. Saw many deer. at least one bear (see pics).

Log Cabin BBQ in Elkton, VA is a "not to be missed" location for anyone driving thru the area. I plan on making it the end point for all my future Skyline cruises.

While I was playing with the group, Tyson's smart center relocated. they are now a whopping 90 feet south of our original location. IN the Mercedes Benz building on Rt 7.

Hope to see most of you at the Dec Festival of Lights cruise?

Haven't had a chance to add the photos I took but thought I'd post this small that I liked.
