10 day Hawaiian vacation first 5 on Kauai second 5 on Oahu. Lots of hiking tubing and outdoor activities on Kauai. 1 on my list was hiking and getting a sota activation in on KH6 (the ham radio prefix for the Hawaiian islands). This peak is in view of the hotel and has a trail so lets do this. The first 1/4 mile is very muddy and comparable to hiking on ice. Once you get higher and get more sun exposure the trail dries out and becomes more manageable and faster. I had an inexperienced hiker with me so it was slow going at first but after the dry out we moved and before we knew it we reached the summit. I made several contacts back to the states as far as Kansas. A successful hike and SOTA activation. On to more adventures in Kauai and soon Oahu.
