It is a spring in Alaska, nights are still cold but the sun is shining during the days but you can’t wear your shorts yet. We have been shopping for our trip, climbing gear, freeze dried food, tents, water bottles and all kind of extra little things we didn’t knew we need those until we saw them. Parking lots are huge here and shopping centers are open 24 hours a day. People are big and cars even bigger. Crazy place.
We have been staying in Arctic Adventure Hostel and now it’s time to get a bus to Talkeetna by them. Nice place with lots of other climbers. So we all are ready to go to the mountains, Steinar, Dave, Carl and me!
Plan is to meet the rangers in Talkeetna tonight and then fly to Kahiltna glacier as soon as possible, hopefully on tuesday. Me and Steinar have skis with us but Dave and Carl are using snowshoes to get the long glacier up.
