Mt. McKinley: Brent Okita’s Team Begins Their Expedition in Alaska

Everybody made it to Alaska just fine with just one not-so-minor hiccup. One duffel never showed up and had one of us spending the afternoon at REI replacing missing items. As luck would have it, we got a call from a climber in Talkeetna who had picked it up at the airport by mistake.  With that behind us we were ready for a beer and turned in after our big travel day.

Today we were busy getting the incredible amount of gear needed for this adventure ready for our flight in the morning.  Everyone is excited about getting started.  Me too, even after all these years.

More to come soon…

Hi Logan-

After having been up there the last two years, I feel like I should be up there with you right now.  I miss that mountain.  I’m going to Mt. Elbrus in July but that’s a very poor substitute. 

I’ll be keeping my eye on you and if I see you screwing off I’ll have to send Brent a private email about it.  :-D
