Farewell Rooster

Lynn and I were deeply saddened to get the news from Steve, wG0AT, that Rooster had passed away. Rooster was more than "just a goat" he was a great companion to my good friends Steve and Pam.

I do not have the right words but am glad that I had the opportunity to hike with Rooster and enjoy his unique personality.

Rooster and Peanut always have a way of putting a mountain into perspective

The last picture is one of my favorites and hangs on the wall of my shack. It was early in my SOTA career and I learned as much from Rooster as I did anyone else on how to get to a summit.

Rooster was a great mascot and ambassador to Ham Radio and Summits on the Air. He will be missed.

Godspeed Rooster.
