How did that happen?

I don’t know where to start.

Thursday 21st September 2017 was the second day of a two day break away in the Yorkshire Dales for Marianne and I.

Somehow, and I just cannot fathom how it happened, but Marianne and I walked together to the summit of Sharp Haw G/NP-029, in thick fog and pretty heavy persistent rain, over some very boggy ground. And I did an activation at the top.

I only rustled up a single contact on 2m FM with the handie - but that still went down as a major victory in these most unlikely of circumstances.

We’re back home and we’re still speaking. Marianne said she’d enjoyed the break away. What on earth is going on? Nurse…?

Be prepared, Tom, be prepared. Some sort of “cake” or something is currently baking in Marianne’s oven and I think you’ll soon find out…
Perhaps it’s something to do with a planetary alignment…
My wife also suggested me some day this week that we may go together to hike Mt. San Cristobal EA2/NV-119. Pretty much in shock, I said yes, sure. If this finally happens, which I still doubt, making a SOTA activation once in the summit strikes me as very unlikely.
Good luck, Tom ;-).
