I hope I am not going to jinx this but here it goes… Carey(George)/KX0R is on his way to W0C/FR-062 despite light snow fall here in Colorado (go get him). This summit will get him to the 1000 Activator point mark and therefore MG #03 for Colorado.
A big CONGRATULATIONS for a remarkable run by a remarkable activator. Carey has many many first activations under his belt and quite a few at very high altitudes (>13000 ft / ~4000m). As a very skilled outdoorsman, he has bushwhacked his way to rarely visited mountains all around Colorado. Weather, burned down forests and washed-out areas can’t stop him… and we have quite a few of those due to the record breaking fire seasons over the last few years and the 500 yr flood event in 2013.
Carey has also been sharing his experiences with the rest of us through his blog-posts (http://goo.gl/uzvAyp) and is always quick to respond to e-mail inquiries regarding trail conditions etc.
The bottom line: he is an incredible asset for W0C and the MG is well deserved.
GL on your upcoming activations…
