We did our grocery shopping at Fred Meyer's and then headed for Talkeetna. We checked in with Hudson air and hauled all of our gear to their up-stairs RMI-only storage area and made our way to the Talkeetna Hostel to drop off the rest of our stuff. Finally, we had lunch/dinner at the West Rib, and that's it for today. The locals are continuously amazing. And the liquor store charges nearly as much as I pay in Manhattan. Crazy.
Tomorrow we'll probably do a little bit of gear-check stuff, then we'll do the Orientation thing with the Talkeetna Park folks, then spend several more hours finishing up our gear-check stuff. It'll be a pretty easy day, really ... although it's a lot of work sorting through everything and getting it all packed correctly. Especially the food.
The next morning we should be pushing off to base camp....
