On March 10, 2017, my wife and I were exploring summits to the south of Eugene. After activating Yellow Butte, W7O/CC-024, near Yoncalla, OR. We found a nice little hill south of Elkton, OR, Peak 1100, W7O/CC-135. This summit is on a private farm above the Umpqua River. The owner lives in a house about half way up. We spoke to her and told her about SOTA. She gave her permission (reluctantly, I think) for us to activate her summit. She said that she would prefer that others not come to activate the hill top summit. I told her that we would make it off limits in our data.


So, it was a nice and easy hike and activation for us on that day, but please leave her to her privacy. Too bad.
