Foraker update

| June 1, 2009

I’ve gotten several “we are OK” emails from the Sultana Team.  They have all been from their base camp which makes me think that the weather has been bad and they haven’t been able to start their ascent.    A look at the Denali Recreation Forecast talks about high pressure on the East side of the mountain, but precipitation and unsettled weather on the west side of Denali.  Foraker is in the south west side of Denali.

    Hey Polly!

    I’ve been getting the SPOT messages too and I keep waiting for it to show them higher on the mountain. Hopefully the weather improves and they are able to proceed. I’m sure they are chomping at the bit…and hopefully not on each other. :)

    Thanks for the updates Polly.

    I’m assuming they’re still shuttling items up to Crossen and he’s confused his SPOT with his superfluous SPORK and left it sitting at base camp for now.
