Mt. McKinley: Beren & Team Break Trail to Cache Supplies

After our rest day yesterday, we were certainly ready to bust a move this morning. Clear and cold conditions soon gave way to snow flurries and minimal visibility. We made ready, grabbed another cup of coffee and caught enough of a lull to try to carry loads higher on the mountain. Our plan was entirely dependent on conditions encountered on each stretch and despite being the first trailbreakers since the storm, we were able to kick a proud track through several feet of new snow up to Windy Corner and make our cache. Our team opened the route up in good style and if favored by workable weather will try to push it up to 14 Camp tomorrow. Everyone is doing great and will surely enjoy a good night’s sleep after a solid day in the mountains. Thanks also for the messages to the team!  Keep ‘em coming!

¡Hola, equipo! Glad to hear things are going well and moving upwards.

Today I completed a successful mission to deliver homemade cookie to the folks at Muir (and got to try out the new skis!)

Stay strong and keep thinking happy thoughts…

Bob, sounds like a tough day, but you are up for it, you trained hard for just this kind of needed endurance…keep it up brother, the summit is getting closer.  Showed Dad one of the pictures of you lower on the mountain, he thought it was remarkable (well, something like remarkable anyhow).  Continued prayers for you and the June 5 team, keep it up!!

Working is better than sitting that is for sure!~
Tip for 11,200.  Keep clear seperation of your midnight tent bottle and your water bottle while you are wore out from a long day of work.  Mixing those 2 up can spoil your din din.  Rest well tonight! -Dave

“We have not wings, we cannot soar,
But we have feet to scale and climb
By slow degrees, by more and more,
The cloudy summits of our time.

The mighty pyramids of stone
That wedge-like cleave the desert airs,
When nearer seen, and better known,
Are but gigantic flights of stairs.

The distant mountains, that uprear
Their solid bastions to the skies,
Are crossed by pathways that appear
As we to higher levels rise.

The heights by great men [sic] reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upwards in the night.”
