Soggybottom Boyz

After i missed there call on Monday night i decided to carry my phone on me at all times! i also put it on speaker and vibrate just to make sure i didn't miss it. Thursday morning while i was shopping for breakfast off it goes and to my excitement Bret was on the other side! Now the last missed phone call i received stated that they decided to stay on the original route that was supposedly impassable. Talking to Bret they decided to stay with it because they new it and....well i guess we'll see if it is impassable. The past few days they have been getting dumped on, and it came in wet, heavy and with a vengeance! Needless to say wet bodies, lots of snow and heavy packs have made this pretty slow going. As of Thursday they had made it to the highest point on there route where, Wortmanns, Woodworth and Browns Glacier all meet up (which looking at the map I believe is around 5000) and they would be starting there decent onto the Cordova Glacier and into Cordova through Rude Lake. Its been alot of ups and downs, but this morning Bret said they woke to clear skies and BEAUtiful peaks, which makes it all worth while! I plan to talk to them Saturday morning so i will keep ya posted!
