I am very much looking forward to tomorrow and hoping that Murphy does nothing to screw around with my plans for FOBB. At this point in time, we're up to 244 Bees. I looked at the national weather maps and there doesn't appear to be any HUGE patches of inclement weather anywhere; so I am hoping to hear lots of Bees on the air tomorrow.
W2LJ will be operating from a local park. Antenna will be a EFHW cut for 40 and 20 Meters. Not sure whether it's going to be the PFR-3A or the K1. I am thinking the K1 as it has 15 Meter capability that the PFR-3A doesn't. I may end up tossing a coin; or perhaps even bringing both. As I am walking to the park; I don't want to pack too much extraneous stuff in the rucksack if I don't have to. For me, this is just like going on vacation; I inevitably end up packing too much!
I should just bring one radio, headphones, the antenna, paddle, battery and power cable. Also the crappie pole and antenna launcher and a pad for logging. Anything more than that is overkill; but I always fret that I'm going to overlook something important.
Hope to hear you on the air tomorrow!

QRP - When you care to send the very least!
BTW - I will hand out Bee numbers up until around 11:00 AM EDT tomorrow morning. That's about when I'll be getting ready to leave to go operate.
