Today we are training at Camp Muir.  The weather is not cooperating with our training, but we are having fun teaching and using advanced techniques for our very advanced clientele. It is very winter like here at Camp Muir a lot of snow and a lot of wind.  Our last session will be navigation, and that will come in handy tomorrow getting down the Muir Snowfield.

We had a fantastic time learning mountaineering skills and hanging out in the hut at Camp Muir.  What a great group of clients and guides!  Thanks to JJ, Dan, Tim, Katey, and Alex for teaching us so much.  You took a newbie and got me well started on a great obsess,er,uh, hobby!  Thanks to Nick for suggesting the trip, and every body for keeping it fun.  I hope Zeek’s goose grows her feathers back in time for the next trip!

Guys, Was that awesome or what? Thank you so much Dan, JJ, Kate, Tim, Alex and everyone else at RMI. A trip to remember for sure. Mother nature had different plans for us. And thats ok. I would never have had the opp. or time to get to know everyone on the team if it were not for the time in the hut. And a GREAT team it was. Zeek don’t don’t forget to feed the goose. Love you all :)
