Elevation: 11,200'

We are getting beautiful weather day after beautiful weather day! We retrieved our cache from 10,000ft. We are now set to bring a load up to around 14,000ft. This will be great for our acclimatization since it fits into the climb high and sleep low model.
The team has really been doing a great job of taking care of themselves. We are doing a lot of sport eating and drinking as we sit around camp. I am usually a hydration nag, but this crew is on top of it!

Stay Classy North America!

I’m thrilled that all is going so well.  Steve, we sure think about you a lot, but you know, the other teams are reporting that they get to eat Pop Tarts.  Is your team missing out?  Do they know that there are peanut butter Pop Tarts now?  Bill and I are wondering what took so long. They are awesome.

So glad to hear your team is excelling. Give Q a big sloppy lick from Jack, and tell him he is doing great.
