GW/NW-033 Tarren y Gesail and GW/NW-036 Tarrenhendre 11/10/2020
I’d been putting these two off for years so as it was within my range to activate and not stop off anywhere on the way I decided to make these two my target for the day. As there are various approaches to these two I discussed my route with my friends and fellow activators Simon G4TJC, Gerald MW0WML and Karen 2E0XYL. From the discussions I stitched together a circular route which would give me a good work out. I’d like to point out that two parts of my route (including downloadable GPS files) are on the SOTA Mapping page as uploaded by Simon Tracks - view, create or upload tracks or routes to SOTA summits - sotamaps.org A wonderful resource which should be your first port of call when planning an activation. My route today is not the only one but did not involve any bog trotting or having to climb over fallen trees in the forestry. However, it was a fair test of stamina. I only saw two people all day but thoroughly enjoyed my day on the mountains playing radio. Thanks to all the chasers with 28 contacts on the first and 18 on the second.
