We woke up with a couple of inches of snow on the tents this morning. No storms or winds, just the friendly June kind of Denali snow.

We had a very pleasant rest day. We checked in with the camp gossip and watched a few teams head up the fixed line towards 17k.  Our plan is to head up to 17,000 ft and make a camp. We have really been doing a great job of sport eating and no one has had any problems with this altitude. We are all very excited because we do not drag any sleds up past this camp.

P.S. Lance wants Penny to know that he is keeping up with his dental hygiene. (But the rest of him has not washed in ten days!

Also, Uchal says Happy 2nd Birthday Lulu!

Hello Gregory Grasshopper! We all had a fun time in Austin, swimming in the Pedernales, eating, and catching up. We are thinking of you and hope all continues to go well.  Midge and Pete say hi.

Love you,
