My day started well on Stiperstones WB-003, and it was nice to meet Mike 2E0YYY at the summit already in activator mode. Nice setup, Mike, I picked up a few ideas to try!
Moving over to Longmynd WB-005, I parked up and made the short walk to the trig point.
Returning to the car, I found it surrounded by a group of the ponies that live wild on Longmynd. They were just finishing giving my car a thorough licking! Presumably the salty deposits from winter roads were the attraction. I can’t really blame them, but a slightly muddy car which has then been licked all over by ponies is not a pretty sight! A few deep scratches too, which is more annoying.
It serves me right for not walking up from the bottom of the hill, but beware of ponies to anyone else visiting Longmynd during the winter! It’s the last time I give them an apple core, mutter…
