Mt. McKinley: Haugen’s Team Has a Rest Day at 14K Camp

Friday, June 21st, 2013
Ahhhh a day of rest. We did not even move in our tents until the sun hit them at 9:30. We had a morning of slowly cooking pancakes for the group. We believe pancakes are the perfect acclimatization food.

We volunteered to be guinea pigs for a medical experiment having to do with high altitude. The test involved having a series of heart rate and oxygen saturation measurements taken and then walk around a track for 6 minutes to see how those measurements change. It was not a competition, but let’s just say our group crushed it!

If the weather is nice tomorrow, our plan is to move some gear up to 17,000’ Camp. On Denali, 60% of the time the weather is good all the time!

Any smiley faces in the pancakes?  Glad you got some rest.  Big storms here (well, yes, it is all relative) but all is well.  :)

Pancakes, huh?  Well, OK.  But you know, the other teams are reporting Pop Tarts.  Since we live at 9500 feet, Bill and I are sure proof that Pop Tarts are the best high altitude food ever made.  But if you guys want to eat pancakes, carry on.

Glad you got to do some walking on your day of “rest”. Looks like your team is full of well prepared athletes. Love from the “Ville”.
