I expect it is one heck of an adrenaline rush! Again, thanks for the input.
Coach, there are three things i did not see anyone suggest to bring and can be very important for your hunt.
1- A small oxygen bottle and mask if you can obtain them.
2- Baby Wipes! You will need them as the air is much drier than what you are use to. I live in Louisiana and believe me when i tell you don't leave home without it. You will see what i mean on your first BM.
3- Lip balm and hand lotion are good to have also.
Good luck on your hunt and pay the search and rescue fee! You never know as those mountains are enormous.
