Mt. McKinley: Knoff & Team Ready for Some Exercise

June 29, 2014 - 12:16 am PT

I believe the saying goes “when the sun shines, make some hay!”  Well metaphors are going to have to do because Toto, we ain’t in Kansas anymore and nothing grows up here except foot fungus and beards.  So, with the sun finally shining brightly and the snow settled to what seems a safe consistency,  the team is ready to make some hay and move to 14,000 camp tomorrow!  This morning we didn’t crawl out of tents until the sun warmed them up at 9 am.  After that, massive coffee presses, eggs, bacon and hash browns followed.  Yup, we do it right up here.  It was Andy’s birthday today so he got to be served all morning and surprised after breakfast to a tent full of balloons thanks to Lindsay’s pre-trip preparations.  After breakfast the team read, sun bathed, still sunk waist deep in snow when not on the trail and prepared gear to bring up the mountain.  We are all excited to move our rested legs and make our way up hill.  It will indeed be a doozy of a day, breaking trail, dealing with the sun and carrying heavy loads.  I know we are all up to the task. 

Wish us luck.
