Yesterday we got to the hotel around 10 PM and were pretty tired after a full day. A hot shower and a good night's sleep fixed that, however. We woke up around 9 in the morning, had some breakfast and went for the easy 4 pointer Magura. The name of the summit changed on the SOTA database to Peana, but I'm not sure if this is the actual Peana summit or there's a mix-up. The morning was sunny and warm, so the activity was really pleasant, even though there weren't many stations around. With other summits on schedule, we've left from the top fairly quickly, the entire activation - trip included - taking an hour and a half.
The good weather didn't last, though. As we headed for home, the clouds rolled in, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped. We tried activating a summit near Bistrita, but decided to leave it for another time, as it seemed quite far away from where the car could take us. We also dropped the next activation, a summit around Tihuta Pass, because it was rainy and muddy and I was tired (Andrei already activated it earlier this year).
Hi, we're a team of hams from Romania. We're into SOTA and other activities. Thanks for stopping by!
