While the family was away on holiday and summer in full swing I was looking for a day long SOTA trip. A quick look into the SOTA Database revealed many 8 and 10 pointer hills in DM/BW and I’m living only 1/2h from the HB9/DL border away. 22 July 2012 looked promising and I set of at 6am local time with following itinerary: DM/BW-235, then 233, 175, 176, 232, 193 and if there is still energy in my battery I will add DM/BW-161, 159, 157 and 156. Sunday evening arrived and I baged all of them except DM/BW-159 and 156. In total I was away for 14h05min, travelled 245.3km (mostly by car) and the total ascent was 5km (abviously the majority by car). A report for each of the activated mountain can be found in the SOTA section of my webpage.
