Another day, another activation. 😉 So this morning the wife and I packed up the ute and headed off to Mapleton National Park to do a little radio, do some bush walking and generally relax and slow down for a time. The park is about 100km from home. We setup in the day use area and had the place to ourselves for the better part of 2 hours. Did not make a lot of contacts, enough to qualify the park for VKFF and not a lot more.
Spent the couple hours i was there following the shade. I left my hat at home and even though i was covered in sun screen, its not a good idea to be out in the hot Aussie sun without a hat.
While we were out there, we did a bit of bush walking. It was a good to get a few Km under the belt today. We have decided that next trip will be to Lamington Np, probably to Binna Burra to do a few walks there and the a little bit of radio afterwards.
