Team Booyahkahshaw Summits!

Hey, good afternoon everybody this is Alpine team 8, otherwise known as Team Booyahkahsha and/or Delta Strike Force #9. We’ve got Iceman, Maverick, Goose, and Merlin here standing on the top of North America. Everybody just wants to give a big shout out and say hello.

“Hola, from Pablo (unintelligible)”

“Hello to all of my friends and family back home, this is Jen Loeb saying high from the top of North America, Iove you guys, I’ll get home soon, goodbye!”

“Hey this is Ben Spakowicz, happy to be on top of Denali, Love it.”

For those of you that you didn’t hear from, John and Sharda, we miss you, you were a pretty important part of this team, giving out big props to you and Craig right now is chilling back at 14 Camp with Danny Oment, just really wasn’t feeling it. Everyone is safe and sound, we’re going to start descending the mountain, should take us a few hours to get back to 17 Camp. We’ll give a ring probably tomorrow when we are back to 14 and hopefully be back in Talkeetna in 2 days from here. Adios! (cheers)

    Expedition Mindset: When “Showing Up” Means More than Physically Arriving
