2023 - A Record SOTA Year!

As you can see from the stats picture, I broke most of my "personal best" records in 2023.  If you don't count the uniques from my first full year, I bested that stat too.  Came in short on MTB miles because I hiked a couple of summits that had good MTB access.

In addition, here are some other personal best records in 2023 for me:

  • Most radiation absorbed, 200 centigray. 
  • Least blood spilled doing SOTA (so I must be figuring this out.  )
  • Most summits in a single UTC day, 5
  • Most bands used during an activation, 10
  • Most associations activated, 6
  • Most summit-to-summits, 560 for 2,731 pts
  • Most completes, 68
  • Most chasing, 839 for 3,243 pts
  • Broke through 3,000 activator points, making me 3x mountain goat.

None of this would have been possible without help from the SOTA community and the overlanding vehicle belonging to W6TED.
