Alp 6/The Justified and Ancients of Mu Mu moved up to 11,000 Camp then had an active rest day doing a backcarry with a little snow on the side

Friends, family, loved ones, Stuart here and Nick from Alp 6, The Justified and Ancients of Mu Mu Land. Just calling in from the 11,000 Camp, just to report all is well here.

We moved up yesterday from our secluded camp just a little short of Ski Hill in good, fine style. We got tents set up and today we did an active rest day; we did a little back carry, went down and picked up that cache that I talked about a few cybercasts ago.

All’s well here, got a little bit of weather, a low pressure came in today with a little bit of snow, no winds at the moment, and it hasn’t affected plans so far, so the plan tomorrow is to go up and put a cache in, just around from Windy Corner (about 13,500 feet).

Everybody sends their love, hopefully this goes out, I had problems cybercasting yesterday, just with the topography around us here, it’s somewhat difficult here to get satellite reception. So hope I’ll be able to put out a message and this one goes and I’m not talking to cyberspace. Thanks for tuning in, and bye for now.
