McKinley Expedition: Knoff & Team Carry to 11,000’

It is apparent the two previous days of hauling full loads weighing more than a small horse has already made our team stronger.  Yesterday we all felt a bit nackered but ten solid hours of sleep was most revitalizing.

This morning the alarm went off at 6:00 am and we woke to clear skies and cold temps.  The ever constant roar of our stoves means coffee is close providing the needed impetus to crawl out of warm bags and into cold boots.

We then made a smooth carry to 11,000 feet, the sight of our next camp.  With a full afternoon to rest, the team is now learning the invaluable skill of killing time.

Gords - looking good.  I’m glad the treacherous training trip up to Eagle Point last fall prepared you so well, this should be a breeze now.  And in the creepiest of ways, just know I am watching your every step.  EVERY STEP.  Hooray for blogs and technology.

Cheers bud -
Patrick & Sarah

Love the details. Your conditions beat the predicted 95 temps in Kansas! Four years ago did you ever dream you would be on Denali?

Mike and all, stay strong, keep warm, and soak in the majesty of Denali!  Hannah wants to come next time! <wag wag>

Great progress Guys,
Note to Mike, I made your picks for you. Both Busch brothers are on row four for Sonoma. Rich and I agreed no one gets to pick Ambrose since he’s a shoe in for this road course.
