Epinephrine with Danger, Max, and Issac

Epinephrine Group Pic


One Week Pre- Trip

Danger decides that we should climb Epinephrine.  I agree.  I excitedly tell my roommate and bud Issac.  He must climb it too.We painfully wake up pre-dawn.  I hastily pack a second headlamp and force down some stale cheese-its and join Issac and Danger in the Fuggin’ Honda.  I slept all the way there and spaced out for most of the approach so it seemed like I just arrived at Epinephrine.

Pitch 1

There were let a group go in front of us because they seemed like the kind of people that we wouldn’t see again after the first pitch.  Suspicion confirmed when the leader confidently skipped a high first bolt.  Issac climbed the scary slabby first pitch like a boss.

Pitch 2

I took forever leading the second pitch.  There was one spot where I could not find anywhere to place gear on a short chimney pitch that should have been easy.  I finally found a nut placement and made it to the bolted anchors.  I looked down at my harness to discover… my belay device was gone!

The night before I had seen Danger tie a knot called the “Munter hitch“.  I tied it, tested it a few times and shouted down, “Danger, come on up!”  I’m just realizing right now how confusing that might be for the uninitiated to hear someone yell…  Anyway, Danger climbs half way up and calls up to me, “I found your belay device! What are you belaying me with?”  I told him that he was fine.

Danger joins me on a small ledge and says, “How did you manage to lose your belay device ya dupe?” Danger is preparing to belay Issac up.  I look over the edge and see an unnatural shiny green object hurtle off the cliff.  I ask Danger, ” Was that your belay device?” It was his belay device.  I have a good long laugh and Danger belays Issac up with a Munter hitch.  Issac climbs up and we see that he has Danger’s belay device clipped to his gear loop.  Turns out that it miraculously landed on a tiny ledge within arms reach.

Pitches 3-5?

Danger lead the hardest chimney pitches.  5.9 chimneys are hard! You must struggle and scrape your body along sandpaper sandstone until you are completely exhausted then look down at your six inches of progress and be pleased.

This is a chimney. It is smooth like glass but will also tear your clothes somehow.

Pitches 5-7?

We made it to the top of a formation called the dark tower.  Which contained all the hardest pitches.  Unfortunately it was getting dark and we needed a way down.  Headlamps became necessary when Issac lead a slabby run out pitch that we thought would put us in an easily rappel-able section.

Dark Pitch

Issac climbs up to the first bolt and a good amount of feet past it.  Issac couldn’t find the next bolt and was starting to pump out in a near decking zone.  Suddenly, Issac yells, “Ahhhh! (Danger cranks down his belay device) I’ve found a bolt!”  Danger and I realize that we were not breathing.  Issac climbed up and clipped a few bolts that Danger and I didn’t see and cuts feet on an overhang.  This ordinarily would have been poor technique but our legs were destroyed from the chimney pitches and we had a lot more trust in our arms.

Danger and I climb up to Issac and do a short traverse pitch.  We see some webbing tied to a rock.  We decided that people must rappel from here.   I am the lightest so I rapped down first because I am the tiniest man and would be the easiest to haul back up if I ended up on a blank face.

Turns out we weren’t where we thought we were but I found some permanent anchors anyway.  Although,  when Issac and Danger came down and we tried to pull the rope through it got stuck immediately.  We struggled to get the rope down for at least half an hour and seriously considered sleeping on a cold hanging belay in a deafening wind.  Finally the rope came down.  For the next rappel Danger tied a Euro death knot Patagonia knot and the rope didn’t get stuck again.

After some difficulty finding permanent anchors we reach the bottom of the route around 12:30AM.  I was pretty tired and delirious f0r the hike out.  We arrived in Vegas around 1:30AM and had ourselves some fun times with good friends until around 5AM.

 The Day After

There was much sleeping the next day.  We slept in a hot tub.  We slept in a frozen yogurt shop for about 4 hours.  Best yogurt shop ever.  We smelled terrible and we were obnoxious and then we fell asleep.  No one bothered us or asked us to leave.  One lady did ask to take a picture of us because we were so ridiculous. Here’s the address.

U Swirl Frozen Yogurt 7595 West Washington Avenue #110, Las Vegas, NV

Everyone should go to there.

First we sleep.

Bike Trip- Missouri to New Hampshire “Bench Test”

If you are a busy individual read only the bolded text.

On Thursday I was looking up how much an Amtrak ticket from Missouri to New Hampshire would cost to visit my friends.  138 dollars. One way.  36 hours.  Quickly, I plugged the route into Google maps and noticed that the trip was only 1300 miles.  I decided that 138 dollars was quite a ridiculous.  Then I noticed that Google maps had a bike mode…

I needed to know if I had the juice to bike 100 miles a day for 13 days.  Bear in mind that I do not even own a bike and the longest bike trip was to 4.5 miles to a lake with the water-ski people and 4.5 miles back (9 miles).

What I needed was some sort of small scale experiment.  I asked my bud Hogan Sills, biking aficionado, if he could get me a bike from one of the Purdue bike club people.   He agreed to vouch for me.  Friday rolls around and Hogan tells me that someone wants let me borrow a bike.  I show up at the Bike Haus to clam my bike.  I learned that Hogan did not vouch for me.  I gathered that the bike people were told something like this, “ya… this guy wants to ride 100 miles tomorrow, he’s really out of shape and either quit after 30 miles or destroy your bike.”

I received “the pink bike” which at first inspection seemed nicer than anything I expected to get.  I prepared a back pack full of trail mix and water and set out at the crack of 8:30am Saturday morning.

I got lost on campus, missed the first turn, and ended up at the Purdue airport.  I back tracked to IN-26.  My butt hurts already.  At this point it started to rain.  I could have easily made it back to my place to get a rain jacket.  I figured that the rain would stop soon.  My first mistake.

At 11:30am it finally stopped raining, my cotton button-up shirt and synthetic blue pants were soaked.  At this point two people had asked me if I “needed a ride someplace.”  My sunglasses were broken from a previous rock climbing trip and needed to be duct taped to my face.  The rain adversely affected the duct tape and my glasses kept falling off.  I take a break, eat a soggy bagel and press on to Independence, IN.

In Independence I see this really neat car… motorcycle… thing.  It was like a VW Bug rear ended a motorcycle with cartoon physics and they melded together.  Here’s a picture.

The owner of this unique transportation device saw me standing in his front lawn taking pictures of his stuff.  He shouted, “What are you doin’!  From behind his screen door.  We ended up talking for a half hour about his Kawasaki-bug.  The conversation ended abruptly when he walked back inside.  I guess that meant I was supposed to get off of his lawn.

Not too far past Independence, IN I get to a poorly paved road called Possum Hollow.  It is apparently reserved for slow disabled children.  All fast disabled children must play somewhere else. On in the slow disabled child area there lives a vicious dog that bit me in the pants.  I did have an alluring strip of shiny silver duct tape on my ankle though so I was asking for it.  Being a very slow bikesman I did not attempt to outrun the dog.  I got off my bike and yelled at it.  It was undeterred.  Next, I did not punch it but instead I kind of fist pushed it in the face.  It then left be alone.  I thought about trying to get a picture of it but then came to my senses.

I get off of the badly paved road and out of the disabled slow children area and onto a nice paved road.  I immediately get a flat tire.  I checked my severely zoomed out Google maps printout and figured that Independence and Attica were the 2 closest places that would have bike tires.  I chose Attica, IN.  Attica was at least 7 miles away.

Along the way I realized that I did not really need a new tire, I just needed something to keep the rims off the ground.  I collected rubber straps off the side of the road that I hoped I could secure to the rims to form a makeshift tire if Attica did not pan out.

I finally make it to Attica after 2 0r 3 hours of walking.

I see some off-brand big box store called a Pamida and push my bike through the automatic doors and park it in the sporting goods section.  I realized that all of the bike products in the store were not made to be compatible with the pink bike.  I guess that the pink bike must have been made in Europe or some other weird country.  The bike tires, bike pumps, and fix-a-flat kits were all incompatible with my stupid pink bike.


First, I need a way to inflate the tire.  After much trial and error I found that wrapping tape around the tire nozzle and pressure fitting it to the standard mountain bike pump was the best way to get at least some air into the tire.  Next, I needed to fix the hole.  I found a mountain bike patch kit that was made to handle maybe half the psi’s that the pink bike requires to keep the rims off the ground.  I tried two patches and they both blew off immediately.  I got a grill cleaning tool from the Home and Garden section to abrade the rubber and create a better surface for the patch to adhere to.  It worked.  The tire held air!

I then learned that it is almost impossible to get the tube and tire back on the wheel after you take them off.  There must be some trick to it that I don’t know about.  A pair of pliers and screw driver from the hardware section and about 20 min of struggling got the tire back on.  I walked the bike to the checkout aisle and told the lady that I broke a screwdriver and used a patch kit.  She charged me 5 dollars.  Now it is 3:30pm and I am 30 miles from Purdue.

The tire holds for maybe 20 miles before it blows out again.  It is only 5:00pm and I figure that I can walk the rest of the way back to Purdue along IN-26 before 9:00pm.

At 7:30pm John the Landscaper asked if I was going to Purdue.  I wrote down his license plate number and had a text to 9-11 ready to go… just in case.  He turned out to be cool and dropped me off at Wiley Dining Court.

Then I ate at Jimmy Johns and went to a party.  I got tired and left at 12:30am.  The next day I felt a little sore but not too bad.

I learned that is certainly physically possible for me to ride 100 miles a day.  It is possible to ride from Missouri to New Hampshire in 13 days.  If I get lucky and no one hires me I will definitely attempt this journey in May.

The 2018 Dallas Cowboys Have An Interesting Future

What Is Future Of The 2018 Dallas Cowboys? Primetime or Not?

injured dallas cowboyThe NFL as an organization makes a massive amount of money each year through sponsorships and various brand endorsements. A large part of that  revenue is collected from prime time games. Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football owns the networks during the NFL season from September through December. It’s the leauges responsibility to find matchups that deserve a primetime showcasing. So the question is, are the 2018 Dallas Cowboys going to be ready for primetime after such a disapointing season? If they can stay healthy in Texas there might be a chance that they make a playoff run. Team doctors are expecrted to return and keep the squad healthy. There are even rumors of a Texas Sports Performace Chiropractor assisting on the sideline.

Even the Dallas Cowboys did everything they could within the last weekend of the season to make illusion that this game “mattered,” along with the ruse was finished using Sunday’s 6-0 shutout of top-seed Philadelphia.
However, you can not fool me it is difficult to assert the intensity and focus on detail is must-win-level once the group’s in-flight picture on how to Philly is the Reese Witherspoon chick-flick rom-com “Home Again.”

This company decided that forfeiting a potential few slots at draft place (they slip 19th) was worth having the ability to maintain a winning year – plus also a second successive one at that!

So we will not have “Jason Garrett is your greatest 8-8 trainer” to kick all offseason.

“I believe now was a great day for our group,” coach Jason Garrett stated. “Our guys battled and struggled. Obviously, we wish to be in the play and playing weekly. That did not happen for all of us. So that’s disappointing.”
“Great” is an infuriating remark until you hear RedBall add this year is “unsatisfactory” and the franchise’s self-examination will include “how we are doing matters and that we are doing things”

Really, when I scribble my ‘Cowboys Best 10 To-Do List” things with this offseason, that precise type of appearance in the mirror positions No. 1.

My quickie listing, with expansive information to come:

#1 – Assess the evaluators. Is your organizational chart arranged? Are the ideal people and appropriate philosophies set up? Can “Second-Chance Valley Ranch” function? Are in-game alterations fixable?
#2 – Earn Dak Prescott back on track. I told anybody who’d listen he would be resistant to some “sophomore slump.” I’m embarrassingly wrong. And so will be the Cowboys.
#3 – Show me the cash. Zack Martin (having a year left on his rookie deal) and Tank Lawrence (a free representative) are foundational players that are seeking to be one of the highest-paid players from the NFL.
#4 – Re-build the training team. Six assistants are currently without contracts. Substantial changes aren’t arriving near the “top” of their team. However changes are coming.
Oh, also if Garrett and a few media members say it is “early” to talk what is happening withEberflus, Dooley, Wilson and many others?
I am here to let you know, Eberflus, Dooley, Wilson and many others do not think that it’s “premature” whatsoever. Dooley, to mention a person, is not waiting for the Cowboys to determine his destiny. He is deciding it on his own, and I am reporting this since you read this, he is angling to get a school offensive coordinator job.
I have the up-to-moment details about the Cowboys Coaching Carousel here.
#5 – Get the maximum from individuals. Look at Dallas’ place collections. Which over-performed? I provide you the secondary … and that is all I can provide you.
Who Had Had? Great Lord, the record is long that it contains the kicker.
#6 – May these offensive coaches produce imagination? Can these gamers learn it? Scott Linehan has been the overseer of a early-2000’s Vikings crime that’s among the very volatile groups of all time. Is that the way the 2018 Cowboys must do matters? Would the 2018 Cowboys do these things?
#7 – Win in your home. This is a bizarre problem … but it is an issue. They need to win at AT&T Stadium every Sunday!
#8 – Locate a Sean Lee bookend. Could you imagine if you had two men of the quality flying east, west, south and north? (Sidebar: There are limitations, fiscally and roster-wise, to getting double-Pro Bowlers at each place. But yeah, “locate another Tyron Smith to serve as his copy” would be fine, also.
#9 – Boost the amount of value put on the 1-tech tackle. There has gotta be much better method than employing cheap “hustle men” to fill out the slot.
#10 – And last but not at least, keep Ezekiel Elliott qualified.

Dallas Cowboys Stadium

Again, in an upcoming bit, I will go into more depth in those difficulties. However, for now? Somewhere in there, the Cowboys need not to pretend this Week 17 end result is that important. They are thankful they “showed up,” at least on defense, since they enrolled the very first Dallas shutout in two decades. There was clearly effort on crime, together with Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott enjoying the whole game. I mean they played badly, but, hey, they played with a lot!

Can you fire defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli later he pitches a shutout?

Can you fire offensive coordinator Scott Linehan later Dak announces he’s “200%” supporting his mentor?

Can you shoot Garrett when ultimately, the only major mistake he committed over the weekend was that the Reese Witherspoon thing?

I have reported via the weekend which Garrett, Linehan and Marinelli are remaining. I am sticking there. A lot more probable: A few of the six advocates with expiring contracts will not return. Perhaps there’ll be “new-blood” believing, though I am told Kellen Moore is a candidate to be hired because a Linehan lieutenant, and also for many Moore’s possible advantages as a trainer, “new blood” is not among them. Meanwhile, the personal pensions sources inform us that Garrett’s been running with gamers will last. And I am not talking about Monday’s “Exit Interviews.” I am speaking about talks with team leaders concerning how the company can improve, talks that started last week prior to the Philly game.

These things are real. They’re a part of this mirror reflection. They aren’t a part of their ruse.

The Cowboys in 9-7 should not be treated as completely “actual,” either. This is an “exhibition game” in several ways — and when all of the Cowboys’ activities do not convince you of this, the Eagles’ hands-off tackling of this freezing day ought to.

For the Cowboys, this weekend in Philly is going to be tagged a “building block” for its long run. And perhaps that fantasy will come true. However, it’s also a trip which, in contrast to what it could have been, is mostly meaningless, symbolized in its beginning by that ridiculous film and represented in another end by a different in-flight matter.

The Cowboys were stuck onto the tarmac at Philly for quite a while because of how the metal stairway players increased to board the airplane had suspended itself into the side of their aircraft. And a Cowboys Week 17 that started with silliness and then moved on to meaninglessness shifted to endlessness … frozen on a tarmac wishing it would just be over with, already.

Moving Up In The World

My Climb To The Top Led Me To New Jersey

new jersey collegeAfter all the adventures we had traveling the world, climbing the most monster peaks and hiking the ruggedest of terrains I have finally met my match. Yup, as I entered my 30’s I realized that the dream was over and it was time to go back to school. We had spent the majority of our 20’s hiking and climbing some of the most beautiful peaks in the world, and now my internal instincts have been telling me to go back to school and focus on something important. The most natural (and affordable) path for me to follow was to head back home to New Jersey where my folks still live and return to Rutgers for a few years to get my MBA.

The biggest uphill battle I faced was the move itself, after spending the last 8 years living in Washington State I had accumulated enough personal belongings that I needed to hire a moving company to get me from Seattle, WA to Kearny, NJ. There were some local moving companies in Washington that I contacted but nobody wanted to tackle this move. I reached out to some New Jersey movers that didn’t hesitate to help. The guys at Bluebell Relocation were quick to provide me with a quote and put together a timeline for travel that would get me from Seattle to Kearny in time for the start of the semester.

Planning a move is a lot like planning a hike, but oddly enough the process is a lot more stressful. The travel time is equally as bad, at least this time around. Considering I have traveled the world to hike peaks that were only accessible by foot, but that 43 hour drive to kearny was brutal. Montana seemed to go on forever, although I stopped and got some cool pictures, and I got to see lake Michigan which was on my bucket list. Eventually after what seemed like a lifetime I drove into Kearny and shortly after I arrived the guys at Bluebell pulled in like clockwork.

If I ever move back to Seattle apple musicI am selling my stuff though, no matter how smooth the move went I would rather sell my belongings and fly back. Driving that distance alone can be a major bore even with satellite radio and a subscription to Apple Music.

Do You Want To Learn About Storm Shelters?

New Orleans is a changed city following the disaster of Hurricane Katrina in the 2005 Hurricane season. As we watched with dread as the city was ruined by the flooding and killed indiscriminately the city became an instance of the power of nature’s fury. New Orleans has introduced a brand new strategy for protecting its citizens, as the world braces for the next hurricane.

During the 2006 hurricane season New Orleans residents are going to be asked to evacuate not to their nearest hurricane shelter but to shelters outside of town. The point is always to avoid keeping folks within the city of New Orleans which is mostly at sea level or several feet above it. The town has set into action a plan to evacuate its residents to higher sea levels farther inland and is setting up transportation for the elderly and handicapped residents. For the residents of the temporary shelters this does mean being evacuated to a nearby Red Dirt Storm Shelters OKC at the indication of something as small from the temporary shelters as a tropical storm. The residents of the temporary shelters will be moved from the city of New Orleans with everyone else if the tropical storm upgrades to hurricane status.

The Superdome Stadium has always been known as New Orleans shelter of final resort. This is true for Hurricane Katrina as well as well as the Superdome suffered heavy damage. The mayor of New Orleans is making it clear that there’s no shelter of last resort. The mayor is pushing strongly to evacuate residents out of the city entirely in order to avoid the dangers of a storm surge like the one that Katrina caused. Storm surge is the key reason for risk and the deadliness of hurricanes.

Roof Care Tricks To Keep Your Roof In Tip Top Condition

Everybody knows how important it’s to have a roof overhead that is good. Your roof shields the remainder of your house helps keep your house cool or hold in heat, adds value to your own house and gives you and your family a healthier, more joyful spot to dwell. The initial step in keeping your roof in top state is spending some time scrutinizing your roof twice in autumn and the spring, and after major storms. The bi yearly reviews should be done both on outside and the inside of the roof. After thunderstorm reviews should be done on gouges from flying debris, to ensure that there’s no broken tiles, or the outside of the roof. Reviews should be done with using a ladder or binoculars.

During your roof reviews make note of any trees growing close to roof and your house. These should be trimmed back if healthy if there are branches. Additionally, falling branches can gouge damage roofing tiles and the roof. You happen to be protecting your roof by utilizing preventative measures before they can do damage by cutting those branches. In addition, you should clean all the debris out of your roof at least twice annually. Pine needles, leaves, soil and other debris can cause mildew and mold to grow in your roof and cause other damage too.

In most cases, chiropractor is a venerable title on earth up to now, even likely and now onwards to some span.

What is Orthodontics & Who’s an Orthodontist?

Orthodontics is the dental specialty which concentrates on the correct alignment of jaws and the teeth. “Ortho” means right and “dont” means teeth. So orthodontics is the right alignment of the teeth. The specialty of orthodontics within the dental area was the first recognized specialization within the dental area and has been around for well over a hundred years.

Orthodontists are also specialists in dento-facial orthopedics. This means that an orthodontist from Norman, Oklahoma has expertise not only in the right alignment of the jaws, but also in aligning the teeth. A man may have what looks like teeth that are straight, but the jaws don’t line up correctly. A sting difficulty can exist that can result in tooth or gum harm if the jaws are out of sync with each other.

Orthodontists are first trained as dentists. After dental school they attend added full time training for two to three years to become a specialist in orthodontics. Less that 6 percent of dentists are certified orthodontists. Cannot state that they’re an orthodontist, although a general dentist can perform orthodontics for people. For a list of competent certified orthodontists in your town, you are able to see the American Association of Orthodontists web site at There is a link that may give you the information to locate a qualified orthodontist locally.

It really is estimated that 40 to 75 percent of the people could take advantage of orthodontic treatment. Some may get treatment as a youngster, while many others seek treatment as adults. Grownups are often interested in the appearance of the teeth and smile. Adult patients frequently have more comprehensive concerns and the orthodontist will work closely to provide the best treatment possible. In the instance of missing teeth, occasionally the orthodontist can close the space, but frequently it’s better to keep the space open, align the teeth accurately around the space and have the patient’s general dentist place an implant or make a bridge to fill the gap.

Orthodontic treatment provides significant value to individuals with bite issues. An investment in orthodontic treatment can alter a person’s life, how they feel about themselves, how others feel about them. And although orthodontic treatment can appear expensive, the benefits really outweigh the costs with time.

Baboquivari: A Danger and Max Adventure

It was my last weekend in Arizona before I was once again banished to the Midwest.  Something epic needed to be attempted.  Danger suggested Baboquivari, “This one looks like it’s going to be way over our heads.”  ”Perfect,” says I.

We decided to do the Eastern approach and climb the Southeast Arete.  So we drove to basically Mexico and met some boarder patrol guys in in the middle of the night.

The most important thing to know is how to pronounce the name Baboquivari. It’s bad enough that you’re traipsing around on O’odham creator I’itoi’s sacred domain. To be making gringo mispronunciations within earshot of the Man himself isn’t going improve your chances of making it back to the camp by nightfall. I believe the correct stress is on the KEE syllable. It is _Bab – oh – KEE – var – ee_, not _Bab – oh – kee – VAR – ee_. It’s said like _den-of-thievery_, not like _bought-a-Ferrari_* or _shot o’ Bacardi_.

“Descending from the summit of ‘Babo’ can be notoriously epic. It is customary to bring a small gift to the summit to appease I’itoi. This, and some detailed beta, should help greatly with the descent.”

Our Adventure

We took a different dirt road than the one in the approach instructions but miraculously ended up at the Baboquivari “trail-head”.  The eastern approach seemed to have had a trail sometime in the 60′s but now its completely overgrown and non-existent for at least 3/4 of the way.  Next time I’m going to take the Western Approach since it took us about 6 hours to fight our way through a jungle filled with a great variety of thorny plants and cacti.

The approach was way more sketchy than the actual climb.  We ended up roping up at several points.  Although we were off route if there was indeed a route to be off of.

At one point treacherous fourth class scrambling turned into treacherous fifth class climbing.  We continued for a while before becoming too sketched out and decided to rappel.  During the rappel setup procedure one end of the rope became looped around a boulder the size of a coffee table.  We tried to tug the rope free and the boulder jumped from the cliff and fell on our rope named “Lagarto” severing him in two places.  The largest piece was about 120 feet.

Cut Rope! I’m going to write an angry letter to sterling because their rope could not withstand 100lb boulders dropped from 40ft.

We get scared and decide to rappel. Note scared face. This was probably the low point of the trip.  Even though neither of us mentioned bailing we were both thinking it.  We ate some candy and decided that we could probably make it to the summit before nightfall.  We considered doing an easier route but eventually decided that we were going to press on and do the SE Arete route anyway.

Drinkin’ from the bucket. We finally made it to the lion’s ledge and came across a bucket that was collecting a trickle of water flowing from the rock.  I realized that the green water need to be drunk.  It tasted like delicious minty tea.

Post tea we found what we thought we found the start of the route and I climbed a chossy crack that turned out to be pretty neat.  Danger informed me that we were off route; but thanks to the Baboquivari mountain god, I’itoi there was a kind ledge that took us 50ft to our climb.

Around this point a dense cloud bank moved in around Baboquivari, visibility was around 15ft.  Climbing in a cloud is a super surreal experience.  It is like being on another planet or different dimension.

The hardest move, for me anyway, was a kind of pull up move with minimal feet right above a belay station before any gear can be placed.  I hate possible anchor falls.  Danger lead the crux pitch and used up our entire 120ft rope, all the cams we brought, and half the nuts.  Since our rope was short we ended up turning six pitches into about 8 or nine.

 It was dark when we reached the summit and there was no way that we were going to make itdown that night.  We ended up breaking out some emergency blankets that we found (thank you kind leavers of emergency supplies) and making a small fire.  It was a little cold that night but I slept better than I usually do.

We left our offering of a fine red wine stored in a painstakingly cleaned hot sauce bottle to I’itoi and began the descent. The descent turned out to be not that bad.  We sort of knew where we were going.  The rappels were not too difficult to find and we ended up getting back to the car before we suspected that we would.

Then we met up with our friend Matt Estland in Phoenix.  I ate an extra large pizza by myself over a period of six hours and drank a lot of victory wine in Matt’s pool.

Food we brought with us for a day and a half: 4 candy bars and a can of Chef Boy.
