4 Days Left!

The last few weeks have been filled with little down time. Not only am I getting ready for my wedding in 1.5 weeks, but I am also preparing for the climb. I was comparing some of the things I still have left to do and/or pack. There are some interesting correlations:


  • Order undergarments for dress
  • Finalize catering & gluten-free cake order
  • Swimsuit (for hot tub/bath house)
  • Pay for B&B
  • Make appointment for manicure/pedicure
  • Buy or rent water dispenser w/spigot
  • Pack wedding shoes (open toe heels)
  • Pack wedding dress
  • Pack head piece (hand beaded with flower)
  • Rings
  • Finalize lighting arrangements
  • Finalize glassware and serve ware
  • Send out wedding announcements

Mt Climb
  • Buy outdoor dry wick underwear
  • Buy GF freeze dried meals & snacks
  • Balaclava, snow pants, gortex jacket, light and heavy weight tops, wool socks, visor, ear warmer, heavy duty mittens, light weight gloves, gaitors
  • Tent (Tonya bringing), zero degree sleeping bag & foam pads (no payment needed)
  • Moleskin in the cause of blisters (toes and nails will not be pretty after climb)
  • Water bottles (mom has water pump)
  • Plastic boots & crampons (spikes for bottom of boots)
  • Hair ties and possibly bandana
  • Ice axe (although, not a ring, it does accompany the hand)
  • Headlamp
  • Buy collapsible rubber cookware (Tonya has cookstove and fuel)
  • Chest harness & prusiks (these will keep me upright should I fall into a crevasse. No harness needed for wedding)
  • Regular harness
  • Garbage bag (protects pack from getting wet)
  • Send out last email before climb
