Denali Team 4 in Talkeetna

Denali Team 4 in Talkeetna
Everyone on the Alpine Ascents Denali Team 4 expedition arrived at the Fireweed Station Bed and Breakfast just outside Talkeetna around 8:30pm today. Everyone is in good spirits and isready to start. Everyone has their baggage and we will meet at 7am tomorrow for breakfast as a team and will then do gear checks, have lunch, go to the park service briefing and hopefully fly into the mountain with Talkeetna Air Taxi at 3:30pm. The team has already come up with a team name and we will now be know as the “Illegal Monkeys” because the entire team was talking about some woman that caused a number of flight delays in Denver trying to bring a money through security and onto a flight. Well that is it for now. We will continue to send cybercasts as we are able with our satellite phone but they will be audio files from now on. Brien

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
