Life on the mountain...
We climbed about 3000 ft today and are now back down at Camp1. The weather was sunny and warm with temps around 17C to 20C -- quite a striking difference from the frigid overnight temps of -30C. For those of you missing the Manitoba winter, this is definitely the place to be.
We have reverted to our primal selves -- privacy is not a requirement, or at least not available, and taking care of bodily functions with our team members around is now the norm. Luckily (or not, depending on your viewpoint), we have a "Clean Mountain Can" to help us with some matters (http://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/cmc.htm). Probably enough information on that front. I had a mountain shower today which consisted of 2 wet wipes and deodorant.
I am thankful that everything is holding together in terms of my physical fitness so far and my knees continue to work (Hurray!).
I am appreciative of all the messages from friends. Great to hear from the Mingays. And to Gilly -- thanks for noting my slow progress. You should know that I'm actually in Maui sipping Mai Tai's. Whilst passing through Seattle, I gave my Spot to a punter on his way to Anchorage!
