Where will you be going out to a Field Day site?

Do you plan to visit/operate at more than one site?

Field Day is a great way to practice those Emergency Communications skills (EmComm).  
I don't mean the eating of hotdogs, laughing and having a good time with HAM friends and spending hours of "CQ FIELD DAY - CQ FIELD DAY"...
I'm speaking of the setting up Amateur Radio stations and antenna systems, in less than ideal conditions using off the grid, back up or emergency power... what a fun way to practice for "When all else fails".
Will you use Field Day as a way practice setting up an NVIS "Cloud Burner" HF antenna? http://www.vcars.org/tech/NVIS.html
Share you plans!
