Yesterday Vlad's tracker reported he was in Kenai, Alaska heading southwest.

Go to http://aprs.fi and "Track Callsign" for KC2TPD-7.

Couldn't get the photo to work from my phone and horrible internet.

WAY west of Kenai, I don't know if APRS will work way out here....

Yep, He left Kenai early AM. Good to know he made it out West ok! It looks like the weather maybe allowed him to get to where he was headed.

Thank you for tracking guys. Made it to my planned destination Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The trip could not be possible without help from all my friends. Thank You! The trusty RV took another beating and survived. Will be heading back leasurely when weather improves. Looking forward to see you Andy.

Finely distilled and presented personally by an RVator from PA. Very smooth spirit thanks Jeff! I told you where I uncork it

Went up local for about an hour what an island! Makushin volcano is breathing. Developing pictures will post later...
