My last trip to Pacifico Mountain was on June 29, 1980 – over 40 years ago! My friend Jon Fredland drove his 1960 Chevy Impala and as I recall the 6 mile road up from Mill Creek Summit was pretty good and the Impala had no trouble. After last weekend’s discovery that the Alamo Mountain road had deteriorated over the intervening years, I was glad that Brian WA6JFK offered to drive in his Honda Element. The road was a bit rough in places and I was happy not to be in the Audi.
Our SOTA day was wildly successful. I had my biggest day ever with 34 contacts, including 16 summit-to-summits! Thank you Brian for driving. We had a blast on the radios and a nice picnic to boot!
