Columbia Traverse, 44 Day Attempt, Spring 2019
« on: 08/19/19, 08:03 PM »

Spent 4 days with my friends near the end of their 44 day voyage to try and traverse the Columbia Mountains. Unfortunately they begin too early before the first warm up, and got skunked at the end by a truly massive Rockies upslope cyclone, and continued unsettled weather thereafter. The interlude between the two weather events held great weather for the team, and although the goal was not accomplished, good times were had. Full trip report linked below.

"As we all know, the true driving force behind every early morning wake up is not necessarily safety, but the overpowering drive to be sitting on a patio by 1 pm, intoxicated, and spraying loudly about the morning's adventure."
