On my way to Rainier Sat the 4th for a summit attempt!! So much of my training and life has gone into this for about 6 months. Praise the Lord for the blessing to be able to do this and experience his creation. Just curious how I'll do at altitude, better go drink some more water!

Thanks for the write up!
