I woke up this morning, and felt the need to earn my day. I started out early and hiked hard. make it to the top in no time and hung around fooling with the equipment just kinda enjoying the view and playing with the radios.
I did not get as much time playing with them as I would have liked, but that's ok the PA qso party going on kinda had every frequency filled up, and I just decided to sit around and enjoy the view and not worry so much about calling CQ.
I absolutely CANNOT wait to do this again! Im looking forward to my next adventure

Things ive learned from this trip.
Double.. then Triple check your supplies.. I got to the top of the mountain only to find I forgot a jumper cable for my tuner. Scratch 1 Dipole I wanted to try.
Plan for the cold, While I was sweating on the way up heavily.. once I hit the top and was in the clear.. BRRR the wind picked up and I was frozen. At that point, I wish I had worn the next layer.
It was epic fun! and am probably going to be doing this stuff for a long time to come
Till next time.
