Mt. McKinley: Haugen & Team Continue to Wait at Basecamp

July 1, 2013
We are still here. And by here, I mean McKinley Basecamp airstrip in a snowstorm. I am usually an optimist in these types of situations, but the forecast is for days of the muck.

In order to improve international relations, we have adopted two Russian climbers that reached the summit the same day we did and are stuck with us. Andre and Igor pretend to like our jokes and our cooking so we will keep them awhile!

I told the group we were making them Vietnamese Pho for dinner. Really it was Ramen with some dehydrated vegetables. Although they knew what it was, they put some Sriracha hot sauce in it and humored me!

Oh dear.  Stuck for days and no pop tarts?

So excited for you, even with the delay. Can’t wait to see you and share stories. David and 54 others say hi and thrilled about your climb. Love, mom.

Mike and Team,

Congratulations on a successful climb! This is great news!  Hang in there with the wait. I am sure you’re ready for some pizza and beer. Hope I can make the climb with you next year.
