24/7 X 3

I will travel to Ohio and attend a convention (Hamvention) during the second half of this week. I will be en femme 24/7.

I have attended Hamvention most years during the past 33 years, but this will only be the third time en femme 24/7.

The first time en femme 24/7 (2010) was ground-breaking for me (and my associates).

I am associated with two groups and I came out to both groups successfully before attending the convention that year. However, at the convention, I avoided people I knew who I had not come out to because I was trying to get comfortable in the new situation.

Coming out to new people is not necessarily comfortable if the other person reacts badly. (By the way, I am a well-known writer in the ham radio world and as a result, I know a lot of people and even more people know me.)

Last year, I was more comfortable and I made a point of reintroducing myself to people I avoided in 2010. Except for one instance, my reintroductions went very well.

This year, I feel completely comfortable and plan to have a great time at Hamvention.

However, this blog may suffer while I am away. Internet access is often an issue, but even under the best wifi conditions, time is always an issue. There is so much to do during the Hamvention that there is not much time for blogging.

As I have done in the past, I will probably post a new photo and a few words each day. And after I get back home, I will decompress and tell all about my trip.


  1. Is that your chevrolet? Certainly more poses would be welcome. Have fun at the hamvention.

    Stana, Sweet '59 Chevy. Once upon a time I had a '57. Ah, what memories!

    Have fun in Ohio.

  3. Mabe --- I wish it was mine!

  4. Reminds me of the "Norton Girl" . Quite a lovely lass in a pleated skirt, boots and a curvy top.

  6. Going all girl will simplify packing a bit.

    Have a great time! I can't wait to read about it.

    You're a wonderful inspiration to us all.

  7. Too bad the Chevy is not yours, Stana! I hope you have lots of interesting times at the Hamvention. I look forward to your stories about it. Have fun!
