Wow, 21 trucks, you must have overwhelmed every restaurant, gas station, campground and grocery story you patronized. The owners must have loved your group. As for the hand held radio you disliked, I assume you are talking about the FRS radios, the type for sale at most malls, sporting goods store etc. When I lent out my Baofeng handheld, it seemed to have a reasonable range for a handheld. No handheld though, will ever compare to a high powered mobil rig. Anyway, glad you had a good time, I'm looking forward to the next one.
