Disclaimer: This not NOT to start argument abt p100/150 but for me at least resulted from that discussion - the amount of total time invested for an activation from door to door. I wonder how much time activators invest for average activations or what time range they allow themselves, especially the distribution between the four parts driving, hiking, setting-up/dismantling, operating. It seems like a rather tricky calculation.
Do you cut operation time or even total outdoor time to less than the driving time to activate a more remote summit if otherwise this activation were not possible? Logs in database may allow a look into bare op-time but that tells nothing about driving and hiking time. I must admit that I only very rarely look for a more leisurely longer hiking route to enjoy this part, but try to maximize op-time on the summit (basically 2-3 h) and feel totally uncomfortable if op-time is less than driving time.
Again: Not aimed at p100/150.
