I couldn't find a station to do a serious guest-op from, so I spent the weekend at an orienteering meet in Wise County instead. I took my Elecraft K2 and KAT100 with me, and operated some from the hotel using a 20' long random wire antenna. 15 meters worked a lot better than 20 meters, and I couldn't get anyone on 40 meters to hear me at all. I never heard a station on 20 meters. My best DX was Hawaii, followed by the Galapagos Islands. Only two stations answered my CQs. On Saturday night, conditions on 20 meters were awesome - I had solid copy on stations in Tomsk, Siberia and Kazakhstan with my tiny wire, but of course they couldn't hear me.
