I just mapped the 2023 event, 1333 miles one way. Better start a gas savings account now..
1333 miles?!?! If you’re still in Va, like your profile says, that sounds more like round trip than each way.

I missed that RumPunch was referring to 2023 rather than this year. Yeah, Roanoke TX is a long way.

It could also be a product availability issue… maybe they’re having supply issues on the newer model.
Good point. Most radios are made in China, regardless of the brand. Some American brands other the Midland are made in other countries other then China but still not here.

Getting stuff here, let alone through the West Coast ports, has been a challenge for various reasons.

I may be confused (not hard to do)? Attica for 2022 and Roanoke TX for 2023 - correct?

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
1052 miles for me, each way.

Oh, wait. I still had the Google lady set on "avoid highways". 982 miles by interstate. 15hrs vs 20+ hrs

It’s a hike but looks like some cool parks in the area.

Ok... I did it. 893 miles. These trips to Attica have spoiled me.
