Overview

Saturday 15 November 2014 as the VK SOTA Party mass activation day.

My maps show a track to Mt Cobberas Number 1 summit. It appears this track will be marked.

Plan to be on that one before sunset on Saturday for the DX effort as will have a track to walk back down in dark on.

      Yes Looking forward to this trip.
      Intent to qualify all summits to obtain Goat Status !!
      Hoping one or two additional players to support S2S and well as complete scoring as don’t expect this group to be activated regularly.
