Mt. McKinley: Okita & Team Ready in Talkeetna

Hello from Talkeetna, Alaska
The result of a day of hard work sorting and packing stuff we’ll live with for the next two or three weeks. With a little luck we might be flying onto the glacier in a couple of hours or so. The weather looks promising here, but of course it could be completely different on the mountain.
We’re all set and doing great. But first, breakfast at the Roadhouse ...

Good luck on your hiking trip!  I also hope you have good weather.  All the snow on the mountain makes me feel very cold in Georgia.  Ally Mac, your hiking gear and food look very very heavy.  You must have strong arms for this trip.
Cheers to all!!!

Glad the vacuum sealed food made it! Don’t start digging into it too soon.  Hope that you made the flight, last time I was at a place called the “roadhouse” I didn’t make it home for two days… Enjoy and be safe!

Virgil, was surprised when we heard from Barbara and she told us about your climb.
Sounds like the trek of a lifetime. Enjoy yourself and be safe.

That has to be the neatest pile of gear I have even seen.  Enjoy that flight over…fingers crossed you get there today and are able to hit the trail.
