Denali Expedition: Smith & Team Continue to Practice Patience

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 - 11:22 pm PT

Hi,

Patience and more patience. Every day we look at the forecast and wonder how accurate will it be. Is the weather system going to happen or will it be nice out. Its a part of expedition life that is difficult. When do we move? Is this our time? Does it get better or worse? But no one truly knows. Its all in retrospect that we deliberate the decision and know the answer. So we wait. We wait for a forecast that is better than marginal. We have plenty of food and fuel to see if the winds will get better in the next handful of days. Patience is key. In due time it will be our moment, so we wait.

Good night,

RMI Guide Hannah Smith and team

I’m sure the waiting is really difficult. When you’re finally on the move it’ll feel that much sweeter. Sending my best and hoping that the weather gives you a clear window soon. Byron, I got a report that Beans is enjoying the cabin and she’s showing Tater the way. :) We all send our love.

Wishing you all the best on this adventure and can’t wait to hear about it! All of that hard work (and patience!) will pay off. I know I couldn’t do it!!
Warmly,
