What a day. As Murphys Laws of War say, No plan survives the first contact intact. Well today followed that law. Like most SOTA Activators I try to plan ahead. I really do! I picked my summit, planned my route, and packed my gear. I even checked Google Earth to make sure I had a good route to the summit. Well Google Earth didn't show the big ass locked metal gate and big no trespassing sign. Satellites are a pain like that.
So I decided to throw caution to the wind and see if I could find another way around. An hour later, glad I left a little early to cover these little mishaps, I found my back door. I found that my new secondary route was a bit more of a hike than my initial plan but oh well. It was a great hike with some great views.
I am also very happy with my pack setup. I think I will do a video showing my pack setup in detail as I have had good feedback from it so far.
Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to post a comment.
73's and keep climbing!
