Unplanned dual activation of The Hump VK3/VE-019 with David VK3IL

School holidays for me involves balancing time at work with time at home.  This June-July I decided to take the First Harmonic (FH) away for a 4-day middle weekend trip to Bright in north-east Victoria, just the two of us.  FH has wanted to explore snow for some time, and I thought the combination of snow, cafes and bike trails would be a winner.  We arrived in Bright on Friday afternoon, checked into our modest but cozy accommodation, and planned our trip to Mt Buffalo for Saturday and Falls Creek for skiing on Sunday.  The next day, with hired chains in the back, we drove up to the Mt Buffalo plateau, to find not more than pockets and a dusting of snow.  The local guide in the information center had told us this was the worst snow season for 30 years.  After making a meager snow man on the oval near the Chalet, I convinced FH to climb The Hump (VK3/VE-019) with radio gear in pack.
