Well, took a few moments and here are some of my ideas.  I just realized I
can allow a single digit modifier, so the digit can go from 0 to 8.

Demonstrating APRStt at Hamfest
Demonstrating APRStt to friends
I am on schedule.
I may be delayed N hours
I may be delayed N days
I may be early N hours
I May be early N days
I may quit early  N stops
I may go farther N stops
We are camping and enjoying it greatly.
We are hiking and enjoying it greatly.
We are sailing and enjoying it greatly
Call me on my cell
Call my cell on the hour.

Or there can maybe be 1-to-8 different whole word modifiers too.  Like:
Please Send ___ (Money, food, water, supplies, shoes, sleeping bag,

We are operating on ___ power (Solar, wind, battery, generator, emergency)
We are staying with ____ (Mom, dad, sister, brother, uncle, aunt,friends)
Please pass to ____ (Mom, dad, sister, brother, uncle, aunt,friends)

Just thinkin...
