Denali Expedition: Beren & Team Take a Weather Day

We woke up in the wee hours of this morning, hopeful to see our summit window open up. The weather, however, had a different idea. As the skies became cloudier and the snow began to come down, we decided that another slow morning was in order. We gorged ourselves on bagels and plenty of bacon while we sipped our coffee. The afternoon was filled with lots of rest. We are steeling ourselves for a move up to 17k tomorrow, if the weather forecast holds true. Everyone is doing well and looking forward to the chance to move closer to our summit goal. Thanks for keeping up with the team! We will check in tomorrow, hopefully from our new camp at 17k!

Jake J. - I’m happy to see your tracker on the move today. You are doing an incredible job (I knew you would) :) Keep your head up, be patient, and enjoy all of the moments in this epic journey that you’ve worked so hard for.  So proud of, and inspired by, you.  Wish I could be up there climbing with you! Can’t wait to see you (and the ‘stache…you know I love it), and catch up on all the Seinfeld quotes I’ve been missing out on.  Pizza and beer for you when you get back, you know, for extra motivation ;)
xo, S

You trying to set a new record for days at 14 camp? TJones might have a few things to say about that. Tell him Hi for me when you see him next. Send me a delorme text if you get this, I cant send you any.

Keep sane up there. Keep motivated. You wont get those views at home. Plus, you dont have to hear about Trump up there!

Warriors won in 5 games.

Keep that stache combed now.

The bagels bacon and coffee sound delicious. Nothing wrong with a little rest and relaxation. Glad you have moved along so well on your journey. Keep snacking! Have fun! I’m sure Hunter misses you!
