Iceland Trip - August-September, 2012

This 8-day trip to Iceland via Goose Bay, Labrador, was amazing. We saw most of the country during a 1050 mile
drive that took us from Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon, a visit to Harpa the new Opera House, Gulfoss Falls, Haukdalur,
Vik, Klaustur, Lagoon Jokkulsarlon (boat tour of Iceburgs), Vagnsstadir (snowmobiling on Iceland's largest
glacier), Hofn, Egilsstadir, Lake Myatan (Nature baths), Hverarond (boiling mudpots), Krafla, Akureyri (Iceland's
second largest city), and return to Reykjavik.

Falcon 10 to the right was our ride from Washington to Illinois. The Falcon 50 to the left was our ride to Iceland.

Here I am busily programming one of the transceivers we'll be using for car-to-car communication.
