Then we ate at The True Grit Cafe` in Ridgway, CO.

Ep. #244 Road Trip with Grandpa - Part 3

Jacob and Brittain got their special 40 meter, QRP CW pixie kits in the mail, and since I've got my new great soldering station, I had the kids assemble them right away. It was Brittain's first time ever building something like this, so it's a little rough around the edges... But so far so good. We'll see how it turns out. Subscribe: http://...

I made a data cable previously to hook the Yaesu FT-817ND radio up to my laptop. and this time around I'm making one for the iPad. I tell you all that I did to make the data cable, and what I needed to do on the iPad to make it all work correctly. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Got another box of meals from Home Chef. The first dish was adobo chicken enchiladas with jalapeño pepper and sour cream. I've discovered, Home Chef has a wider variety of choices and bigger portion sizes when compared to other food box companies. This meal was another winner for me. Subscribe: http://... Check out
I bought a small, 60W King Solar solar panel and wanted to see how well it would work using my 5W Yaesu FT-817ND out in the field with a makeshift 20 meter antenna. I heard quite a lot and made some impressive contacts. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

This year, while the girls were off doing their own thing, Robin and I headed to Pella to observe their annual Tulip Time Festival.

***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** Our final meal from this box of HelloFresh was sesame beef tacos with quick-pickled veggies and spicy crema. I think this meal was the best out of the 3 - gave it an 7.5-8. HelloFresh didn't disappoint this round. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow
***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** Second meal from our most recent order of HelloFresh: winning pork medallions, with potatoes, brussels sprouts, and tarragon cream sauce. This one wasn't our favorite, but for what it was it was pretty good. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow
***Click here to get a coupon for $40 off your first order of Hello Fresh http://... *** So we've given HelloFresh another try, it's been awhile. This meal was the New York strip steak with balsamic reduction, over polenta, blistered tomatoes, and green beans. I gave it a 6, and Robin doesn't much care for NY strip, but Brittain really enjoyed it. :-) Excited to try the others. Subscribe:
For the sake of Tiana, we attended the Coffee & Donut Festival, April 29th, 2017, in Des Moines, Iowa. It turned out to be a very fun experience - endless variety of dounuts from many different companies, donut eating contest, and many more cool activities. And great coffee, too. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow #johnorjias #donut
I started having some real major noise issues when I was working HF on my radio, so I decided to unplug all appliances that may have been interfering... and you may be surprised, as I was, to find out what the main culprit was.

The day finally arrives: Clay's graduation party. There was lots of dancing and a good time shared with lots of friends and family. And the kids finally get to see Clay's surprise when he opens his brand new PC. :-) (The intro is an inside joke shared between Clay and his friends. That's why it doesn't make sense. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...
Jerry and I went to the DMRRA Hamfest at the Iowa State Fair grounds on the 22nd of April.

While Robin, Autumn & Mike fish, I take my Yeasu FT-817ND, along with minimal supplies, out to an area with zero trees. I set up a 20 meter antenna 2 feet off the ground, and end up getting some impressive results. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

Our friend Clay graduated this year, and the idea was brought about by Caden to build him a new PC for a gift. Getting lots of people involved to split the cost, Alex ordered the parts and had Jacob, Josh, Brittain, Caden & Mason over to help put the whole thing together. They recorded the entire process and it was an exciting one. ;-) This great machine, with an Intel i3 and GTX 1050 ti, only
