Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Back Carry to 13,500’

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
We woke to a beautiful clear morning at 14,000 feet on Mt. McKinley. After a big breakfast, we headed over to the Stanford medical research tent to take part in their hydration/oxygen saturation study. Each person had six minutes to walk as many laps of a set course as they could, and then oxygen saturation was measured before and after. Needless to say, things got competitive. After nap time, we headed back to our cache at 13,500’, and retrieved all of our food and gear. It was a short jaunt, and a great chance to stretch our legs. On deck for tomorrow is a rest day with fixed line practice and some wall building! We’ll be in touch.

Cheers,

RMI Guides Pete, Geoff, Robby, et al

Hola Guapo,
I guess the altitude is going to get sharp fast;it appears that you a very close to the top by the map! We are so excited for you!
I hope you did well with the laps! I’m curious to hear how you finished in that scenario.
It’s been raining for two days…we have been napping a lot too!
Animals are all great!
Miss you!

Good morning, Tommy! It’s great to hear how you and the team are doing! Very interesting competition ya’ll had yesterday. I’m curious how you did! I’m a fast walker, but I have trouble keeping up with you! Just saying! Haha! Everyone here is grateful for the updates on your progress. I am getting positive feedback and encouragement on what I am posting; so I guess that means I am able help them feel, in a personal way, that they are on this journey with you. I can’t wait for you to read the posts and the messages people are leaving. I hope you have an awesome day of rest! I miss you more each day, but I am with you each step of the way. Thank you for blessing my life! Sending you lots of love and prayers!
Rhonda
