Yes, we’re back in Talkeetna after an incredible walk back to Base camp in the early morning hours. I think most of us are relaxing now after a much needed shower. In a short while we’ll be back together for a great dinner not prepared by the guides and perhaps accompanied by an adult beverage ...and certainly including dessert.  We’ve had a great run!

I for one will miss the company of a stellar group of individuals I can now call friends.
Perhaps you’ll excuse their absence from your lives again sometime as we pursue our passion for the mountains. Of course, you’ll always be close to them through these dispatches.
This will be our last, and I appreciate all your support and interest. The people you’ve been following are incredible individuals. We are fortunate to call them friends.

Bye for now,

RMI Guide Brent Okita
