Food for thought…

Summit Dispatch #1

We made it! Once our last 2 checks clear, we will have all of our money in to Big City Mountaineers. That said, you are certainly welcome to still contribute!

Our next big challenge is actually getting in shape to lug ourselves, plus 50-pound packs, up to the top of Mt. Langley. Neither Mike nor I have ever climbed over 14,000 feet, so this will definitely be a challenge. We tried to do a training hike last weekend, but it turned out to be a comedy of errors….

First, it was a bit of a scramble to get out the door. Mike has recently signed on as Creative Director at Wild Things (new website coming soon). He was working on things as I packed the car. We had a bit of a miscommunication, however, and his boots never made it into the Subaru. We got up to the trailhead to meet Steve and Wally only to discover that flip-flops would be Mike’s only option for footwear. Needless to say, we didn’t make it up Mt. Moosilaukie.

Once we climb something, we’ll have another update. In the meantime, thank you again for all of your contributions!
