Mt. McKinley: Haugen’s Team Resting and Hoping

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
After our almost summit yesterday, we took today to rest up for another hopeful shot tomorrow. RMI Summit Team 6 is really a great group of folks. We got sooooo close to the summit yesterday and got shut down by terrible weather. We did not hear any complaining or what ifs… instead we heard about what an adventure the day was and started to plan for another attempt.

Keep your fingers crossed, say a prayer, or do some kind of a weather dance to help us get some good weather and another chance to summit tomorrow!

You’ve got this!  No matter what happens (and I m dancing like crazy here), this is an incredible adventure.  We are so impressed back here in the flatlands. Stay warm.  Thinking of you all, all the time. KAC.

I am not surprised to hear the team thought it was a great adventure getting thru the elements yesterday. “May the force be with you” tomorrow on your summit climb. Love to Quinn from the Ville.
