Mt. McKinley: Jones & Team Summit!

June 20, 2014 - 8:56 pm PT

Hi there, it’s Tyler and team. We are standing on the summit of North America currently with our team. A little bit in the evening around 8 o’clock [Alaska time]. We are out of the wind on our side and it’s sunny, beautiful, and everything is going well. We’ll give you a shout and a little dispatch when we get back to safe and sound to our high camp. Hope everyone’s well. We’re doing great. Thanks for all of the support. Take care you guys. Talk to you soon.

Great Job Jen and team! We are so proud of you for all patience and perseverance. We can’t wait to hear about the amazing views and experience of a lifetime. Tell Tyler he should be a professional writer, we’ve enjoyed reading his updates. A warm shower and cold beer will never taste so good when you get home! Almost there- we love you, stay safe.

YAY! Congratulations to all and a huge thank you to the guides for doing their part in keeping everyone safe.  John, don’t dawdle.  A couple of people in Weedpatch would like a good night’s sleep and that won’t happen until you are home.  We are all so proud of you.  What an accomplishment!
