Yesterday was a day of reviewing shared team gear to pare down our total weight. We finalized our climbing hardware, our first aid, the food, the tents.
Lonnie distributed our new Primaloft insoles and socks; so we finalized our footware.
It's so nice to be in Talkeetna. No mistaking we are in Alaska. We sorted gear at the Talkeetna Air Taxi hanger all aft - with the sound of bush planes in the background. We also were lucky to have a blue bird sky view of the Denali, Foraker, Hunter trio on our drive in.
So nice to see Lonnie here... reuniting with his good pals. He's got a wonderful family of friends out here. It's heart warming!
This morning, we just need to pack up the sleds and divvy up the food, ropes and tents.
Upward! ~Pascale Marceau
