On my journey from HB9 to G I added five SOTA hills to give the driving some change. My first activation was F/VO-053 near Nancy followed by F/NO-100, F/NO-106, F/NO-113 and F/NO-101 all between Reims and Laon. The four F/NO hills mentioned before were never activated so far and offer a big activation zone that can be reached by car.
