In a rut

A few days ago I noticed (looking at my POTA stats) that since last June the only park I have activated has been good old K-1480, Wildcat Mountain! Not sure just how that came about; I started 2023 with a string of new (to me) parks. I think I need to get back into that groove. I woke up this morning wanting to go activate Mirror Lake S. P. (last activated almost exactly 1 year ago) , and also knowing that I needed to do laundry and a lot of other household stuff; guess which of them won. It’s sunny out there, temp in the 50s (crazy unseasonably warm), lovely radio weather.

My most recent activation was on February 11th; pretty standard really (that rut again) starting with a park-to-park. I tried hunting for other parks for a while with no success, so I found a nice empty bit of 20 meters, started CQing, and self-spotted. The response from the hunters was gratifying!

Less than one hour on the air!

I was feeling chilled while I did my logging, and after a bowl of soup I went to bed early. I slept poorly and awoke Monday morning no better; chills, no appetite, weak and tired, body aches … Tuesday was even worse; basically I was really really sick all week and only left the house for the first time yesterday.

The rut? Well, maybe I’ll try to get clear of it next weekend.

Thanks for visiting!
