Sunday, July 28, 2013 myself, Pat WT7N, her bro Mike, and Chuck AC7QN hiked to Gobblers Knob- which is located in Mt Rainier National Park, WA State.  There’s two ways to get to Gobblers Knob.  We chose the shorter route that approaches from the west via Forest Rd 59 instead of the longer Westside Road route.  See Washington Trails Assn’s hike info here:  The rest of the story with photos is here: 


This trip resulted in way less equipment failures than the previous trip to Mt Defiance.  My camera booted up, my KX3 did not overheat and shut off, but the APRS messages I sent to SOTA for self spotting were not received by the internet again.

I’ve been to this peak twice now and each time the view of the west side of Mt Rainier is spectacular- well worth the effort even if you don’t take radios out in the woods.  Happy Trails -30- …. Rich KR7W
