You bet! See the fourth post in this thread for all the pertinent details!
Sounds like we may want to wait until Kyle and Ollie get the "/AG" after their name, if 2now and Ghostbear don't show up that often. Otherwise it will just be me and Dr. Jest. And while we will no doubt have a blast, it kind of leaves everyone else out in the cold.
But I am up for about any kind of QSO, with anyone who wants to shoot the breeze. Except my CW is a little..uh..a lot...rusty!
Kyle, I don't know what kind of rig Dr. Jest was gracious enough to supply you with, but for my radios I use a bank of 4 golf cart batteries to provide power. I thought about buying a power supply, but I spent the money on the batteries and a Vector "Smart Charger" instead. You can see them off to the left in this photo.
The battery bank has obvious uses besides powering radios, of course. Not much of a shack, but it works for me. Sorry about the mess.
Also I apologize for not getting the size (width, specifically) of my post under control. I don't know how to fix it.

They're going to get a 6500w generator, a trailer, and some solar panels next so they can last longer when they are mobile. (Currently they estimate they'll be good for "days" with the battery). I didn't want to inline the big photo so click through to see details:
