2020-10-17 A Washington Double

I traveled up to Seattle to visit my son who just moved there.  Juan’s got an awesome little place and getting in the Seattle city groove.  I had given Josh, WU7H, a heads up that I was coming and was hoping to join him on an activation.  I met Josh via the hobby and he’s a member of the SOTA slack group that I hang out at.  He lives in the Seattle area and has been doing SOTA for a long time and very familiar with the area.  He’s chased me a ton this year and we’ve gotten a lot of summit to summit (S2S) contacts.  Josh activates a lot with Darryl, another prolific activator and S2S junkie. Normally, if Josh or Darryl works you S2S, the other will be right behind him.  I’m hoping that Darryl will be able to join as well.  Josh originally chose a peak that would have some awesome views but the road into the area was closed so he chose a summit North East of Seattle, about 2 hours from where I was.  I was really looking forward to it.
