Default Deep , I do mean...Really DEEP !

Well , I am almost 13,000 ft. ! How do I know that and what should I expect..?
How the hell am I gonna set up a base camp in such deep snow..?

Also BC ,Alberta Border "THE GREAT WHITE NORTH" . I'm several miles from the closest town , which would be "Dunster" ,and somewhere near the peak of MT. Robson .! I got my back-pack , me and all these WHITE TOPS JUST DIEING TO KILL ME..! I"m Polish and I got some Kool toys and know just what to expect.! Altimeter with barometer along with topo maps and compass , That's how I KNOW I'm at 12,972 ft. ..! If you can't read a map and can't relate data (Correlation) ability to understand this data , buy your toys and learn (How) on familiar terrain..!

I got about 16ft. wind pack under my skis and know it could swallow me whole.!
Cautiously with my left ski , I break the wind pack crust and stick my ski pole
in that fracture to see by pressure if it stops ! .. If it don't , I move on and look for more stability . That means this snow is relatively new and unstable.! Or (Leeward) which I will splane near the end..! Hoo Yaa.!

Pay dirt , Stability..! I got the weight of me (+) all my gear..! 300 lbs.(+)..!
Probing . The ski pole stops and compresses the snow at about 4 meters , just shy of 4 ft. ..! Home , for a while anyhow.!

So many (rules of thumb here) experience , logic , UN-common sense , I'm gonna take a break and continue tomorrow!

Do I have any interests yet ? Is anybody out thar..?

Dang , I spend more time "EDITING" my mistakes than I do writin this crap..! BAN GRAMMAR NAZIS'..!

Subscribed. I miss being able to take trips like that. Due to circumstances it'll be years before the wife lets the chains go so I can go out and trek

You used too many commas and you shouldn't have capitalized "rebuttal" or "nature". Don't worry, there's a guy on here that never capitalizes the first word of ANY sentence and gets away with murder. You should be fine.

They do make day packs and such!

My wife and I have negotiated and have come to this agreement !

Don't bitch , come with me ! Well if you are having problems believing me , then you surely won't believe her either ! You would NOT believe where I have taken this spirited woman ! I would die to save her so I draw the line and she accepts and understands me totally !

She has absolute faith in me , hell of a lady ! (SIGH)

PS: I have driven this fair lady to Xanax at times , Sorry bout that.!

I could take the wife but then what's the point of going on a hike. Plus not only will I have the pack ill have the baby on the front it's a little awkward going up and down with a baby Bjorne on the front of me pack on my back plus my sidearm. We went on a six mile hike over the summer of only 1000ft and I swore I was going to topple over with the baby going down.
