2022-10-15 VKFF-0049 Team Challenge

Today was the first day of the annual VKFF Activation challenge. You bet I was going out today. I had grand plans for doing multiple parks a good distance from home. Those plans died with the weather. Relatively strong winds when I left home and a 70% chance of rain. I really wanted to go … Continue reading 2019-11-30 VKFF Activation Weekend -Wyrrabalong National Park (VKFF-0550)
