Congratulations Adrian and welcome to the herd…

Rod and I knew you were on 999 but you certainly sneaked the last one in and caught us out. Thanks for all those s2s along the journey and for hanging around for me loads of times as I tried to sprint to my summit :slight_smile:

Hi Paul, thank you for the post, and all the calls along the way.

Rod - Thank you for finding your way into the log!

Allan - I had hoped to finish the job today, but then the forecast was for hail and lightning, so I decided against. However, the lightning didn’t materialise (or maybe plasmasise) so I couldn’t resist the urge - hence the very late alert. I didn’t mean to be sneaky :o)

Thank you both for the many S2S and other chases from home.

Thanks Don and Jimmy, and all other chasers / activators who have called me and helped to make this possible.

I wanted to complete the MG on Caer Caradoc, because my first activation was from there in April 2009. I only made one contact on that occasion, so no score. It was the start of the journey, though, which I hope to continue enjoying for a while yet.

Finally, I’d like to say a big thank you to La La Land. No, wait, that isn’t right…

This news was published 2 days ago and I had almost missed it until today when I saw it on my phone during lunch time.
My sincere congratulations, Adrian for your longly aimed and finally reached milestone.
Very well done.

Congratulations Adrian - and you chose one of my favourite hills for the big moment. Also looks as if you got the weather right as well - which is a particularly difficult task this year!!

We’ve only met on the hills once (if my memory is correct) when you had been on Stiperstones and we were descending from the Long Mynd. We then realised that you moved rather swiftly and were a lot fitter than us (not difficult in my case) as we’d only just had a S2S with you! Thank you for all the S2S since then and I look forward to many more - especially in sunshine.

Many congratulations Adrian - an excellent achievement. A very nice hill WB-006 - one of the few that I have considered for a second activation using my “B” call. All the best for many more outings!

Well done Adrian on joining the goat herd! It’s a good feeling and certainly our Olympic gold medal. You probably qualified for an Everest Award from HA association too.
There’s more congratulations for you over on the Telford & DARS Yahoo group by the way.
