It occurs to me that in regard to emergency preparedness, it could be valuable (and fun) to create a compendium of SOTA activations covering all peaks in Placer-Nevada-El Dorado counties. Describing not only the simplex contacts and various repeater coverage from the peak, but also the best route and how long to get there. 

It's not hard to imagine a wildfire or other emergency taking out a vital repeater and Incident Command scrambling to figure out the best practical/accessible location for a portable repeater or even simplex relay from peak to peak.

I know I'd like to see this resource. Maybe SOTA would inspire some to contribute to it...?
