I had again, a new Sunday morning full of errands. However, I optimisticly thought I would be able to squeeze an activation and I alerted for the activation of a 4 points drive on summit at about 11h30 utc.
I was a bit late but finally on my way to Mt. Erreniega for collecting my first 4 activator points + 3 seasonal bonus points of this year,
When I arrived to the point where the mountain road to the summit starts, I found that the machines had not worked there yet and an important amount of snow was still on.
Totally impossible for my AWD SSangyong Rodius with just regular tyres and I had no time to park the park and do the hyke from that point.
So I, unfortunately had to cancel my alert and postpone my first 2018 activation
Before leaving the mountain base, I parked the car at the side of the road and had a brief walk on the snow in order to test my new boots. There were about 25 to 30 cm of snow there, so I suposse there must be over 30-40 cm of snow in the summit.
It was a pretty short walk, but the new boots got perfectlyclean after the last muddy activation of 2017 and they worked well, without any water or humidity ingress.
