Bop the Trekker

Three Weeks and Counting...

Hanging around in the gear room fine tuning the rope systems.
Only three weeks left till the Papa Bear of this trekking family, heads up to The Mountain. Denali, "The Big One" in Athabascan, is calling. We are busily figuring out the menu and trying to dehydrate some delisious meals. Training is continuing on. Over Easter weekend they did a 3 day training run in the Talkeetna Mountains near Hatcher Pass on the Bomber Glacier. As I write this, he's trekking up Peak 3 with a 75 lbs. pack and then will be accompanying us this afternoon for a family Mother's Day bike ride. He's been fine tuning his ropes systems and checking all hist lists twice, three time and more!

From today's training run.

Helping Bop & Joe set up the new tent.
