Welcome aboard, Brad. Even though I don’t get to as many summits as I’d like to, it makes me appreciate the trips I do take. Even if the conditions aren’t the best (a lot of folks have been to a summit and not had the QSOs for a valid activation), you’re still outside enjoying the outdoors and playing radio. Even though I’ve only got a few summits, every one came with lessons learned, as well as a great time outdoors, great views, and the anticipation of the next exciting trip.
Best of luck, there’ll always be something to enjoy on every activation. And also on every chase for when you can’t get out yourself, but can help other activators get some points while learning about the summit they’re activating.
Have fun, it’s a great hobby and a great group here.
