Team 8/Booyahkahshaw caches up at Windy Corner then returns with plans to wake early to beat the heat

Hi, this is Danny with Denali 8/Booyahkasha. In case you’re wondering back home, that is spelled “Booyahkahshaw”, just in case you were wondering.

Anyways, today we successfully carried all of our gear and food that we wanted to cache to our cache location at Windy Corner (at13,600 feet) and made it back to camp and everybody did really well.

And now we’ve all eaten dinner and looking forward to moving to 14 Camp. Tomorrow morning we’re going to wake up early and get moving to beat the heat.

Stay tuned and we’ll get back at you tomorrow. Bye.
