...now we just need the rain to stop so we can enjoy some patio time!

Tomorrow is the start of the most challenging adventure of my life - our Denali 2007 Expedition to climb Mount McKinley. It's hard to believe that after more than a year of planning and months of intense training the start date is finally here. The past few weeks I've been feeling increasingly anxious as the date approaches. I'm physically prepared, possibly in the best shape of my life. I have the skills I need to climb this mountain. I'm part of a great team, we're all Mazamas and have climbed with each other many times. Still this is much bigger than anything I've tried before. Up to 25 days on the mountain, 120+ lbs of gear, below zero temps every night, high camp at 17,000 feet and pushing my altitude high mark to 20,320 feet. I'm sure we'll all be fine. The big question is the weather, will the mountain let us climb it? We'll just have to wait and see...
