Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Rest Day

Monday, June 24th, 2013
Today the team enjoyed a well deserved day of relaxation and gluttony.  After three days of early starts we had a leisurely morning of coffee and breakfast burritos followed by some high intensity competitive napping.  Unfortunately it was too close a match to declare a winner at this point, stay tuned for the sudden death nap-off during our next rest day.  Before dinner we reviewed crampon techniques and discussed our carry to 13,200’ tomorrow.  Mac and Cheese with bacon for dinner should provide sufficient calories to fuel us for mañana.  We have been lucky thus far with excellent weather and the forecast is looking just as good.  Knock on wood, I sure hope that didn’t jinx us.  Thanks to friends and family for tuning in.

Mac and cheese with bacon??  Set another place, I’ll stop by.

I hope the good weather holds up for you guys.

Tommy, it’s awesome to hear you had a great day of rest! I hope you were able to find some special quiet time to journal and reflect in the amazing beauty that surrounds you. I was so happy to be able to see Brandon last night for prom. He was so handsome, just like his dad. It brought back special memories! I will be praying for the tough day ahead. I know how strong you are, though, and that gives me strength. I love you!

Gail!!! Missed you while hiking all over Haleakala the last few days. I had to hike with heavy gear and really wished you were there to carry it for me.  Just think of all the malasadas you can eat when you get back.  Good luck up there!!!
