To be fair I do love it when SOTA activations are a ‘bit of an adventure’, and some inclement weather can definitely make an activation fall into that category.
I have the absolute luxury, living in the Lakes, of picking and choosing without limiting the opportunities much, and I do appreciate that luxury very much.
Nothing sadder than seeing Japanese tourists arriving in Windermere when the forecast is for terrible weather all week. The Japanese have an affinity for the Lake District as they learn English from Beatrix Potter books, in part. It’s a terrible lot of money to spend to have a week of no views. I genuinely feel for them, given how wonderful it can be. The weather, like the sea, can be a cruel mistress.
Speak to you soon from a summit when it stops raining
