Awesome hike to a peak I have looked at for many years. Pam and Sam are great hiking partners. I got to work some 2 Meter Simplex from the top of the Peak and worked stations 100+ miles away with 5 watts on a standard HT antenna. Really great trip
"I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
