1.5 Hours of Digging
Left my house at 2 AM
Arrived at the Clear Creek Ranch around 5 AM
Got my car stuck in the snow 1/2 a mile from the sign that says 8 miles to Winfield only to dig out for an hour and a half, then drive back to the sign.
Started at 6:45 AM
Summit at 6:15 PM
Back to the car at 3:00 AM
Johnson's Village for gas and a 16 oz. Redbull
Home at 7 AM with a 40 minute nap on the way.
Shower and go to work. What a nightmare.
I was up for 39 hours.
I went to bed at 5 PM and got up at 7 AM. 14 hours of sleep really helped out.
Shoe Horn of Huron followed by going to work = not a good idea!
Getting a winter summit on the last day = priceless!
