    Bump to keep this on page 1 while waiting for more.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Have a couple things in mind, possibly something similar to this trip in a different location. Hut trip in the Selkirks, or possibly the Lyngen Alps in Norway.

    Wonderful photos! That area looks awesome!
    Regarding basecamp crappers.... the best setup is a 5 gallon bucket complete with one of those toilet seats. Line the bucket with a big biodegradable corn starch bag (http://www.biobagusa.com/catering.htm) and toss the bag into a crevasse every 2 days (or 3 if it's always below freezing). The luxury setup is to tape foam to the plastic seat but only do that if you're sure it's going to stay below freezing - else you risk the dreaded smear.

    That looks alright I guess.

    What a shitty March... You got like a 25 day weather window, so depressing, thanks for making the most of it!

    Hah, pretty ridiculous. Glad we stuck with the plan to fly out of Anchorage. Would've been hosed if we chose SE AK again.

We use grape seed oil to cook with, pretty healthy and doesn't seem to freeze as easy as olive oil, plus has a higher flash point. Have a huge spread sheet with all aspects of planning if anyone is interested at checking it out. Includes personal gear list, group gear list, estimated costs, etc.
    Very interested in said spreadsheet.
