Many thanks Andrew, Ken and Arnaud,
The final march to Goat-dom threw up a few challenges with four changes of plan before getting over the line. Originally intended to reach the milestone at the NY rollover, but it was not to be.
There were fallen trees blocking roads, private property issues and a few other things the SOTA gods arranged to make sure I earned the honour.
The climb up the summit today seemed to have appeased them and quite fitting that it was a summit I was first to activate and that Andrew VK1AD, The Sherpa, was on able to provide that fourth contact that saw the summit activated and 1000 points achieved.
One of the highlights of the activation was the cacophony of bleats and bleating like sounds that inundated 146.5 after the fourth contact. Great fun was had by all.
A big thankyou the great bunch of people that is the SOTA community.
