Team Mo Better drools over pizza at the end of a beautiful sunny day backcarrying from the Corner

Hello there friends, family, and loved ones this is Team Mo Better, formerly known as Less Worse, and now thinking of changing names to Particle Progress.

But anyway, here we are at 14,200 feet above sea level in beautiful sunny weather, sitting around salivating over the pizza coming off the stove as we speak. And we went down and picked up our cache at the Corner today; even though it was forecasted for high winds and clouds, it was high winds and sun, so we enjoyed that, came back up here, did a little…(transmission garbled)… they’re going to be able to do the rope course tomorrow going ahead of schedule, group 12 (transmission unclear).

And we’re heading for an early bed tonight, so we rise early tomorrow and get up the hill before the sun comes out and burns a hole in things.

Thank you for tuning in and just know that we’re thinking of you. Bye for now!
