I'm guessing it was equipment/supplies for an amateur racer/team.

This is my summit photo on Mt. Rainier. Arghhh. I wanted the views! :cry:

And this is on Mt. Sherman in January. I can confirm that the 2nd one was way cheaper to get!

Yea, it was race day. I hiked up from Crags and saw the cars racing up as I was hiking.

I thought maybe the U-Haul had the hot tub in it.

Here's a picture of my wife's left arm and forehead starting down off Father Dyer this summer.

This is me suffering from acute mountain sickness. I got to 14,000 feet and it hit me like flicking a switch. I started getting dizzy the sunlight was unbearable, my whole body was numb and I was feeling like complete crap. This was the day I learned dont drink a lot of beer the night before and then park at the wrong trailhead then to proceed to hike 12+ miles on an empty stomach without any food. Well......ummm I had food but my dumbass left it on the back of the jeep while I got ready for the hike. :-D I have to send a HUGE thank you to two guys that were at the summit that I bummed a Mojo bar and a bag full of trail mix from. =D> By the way that was the best trail mix ive ever had in my life and that Mojo bar was so great that and Ive been stuffing them in my bag with them ever since. The best part was getting back to the jeep with the food still sitting on the back of the spare tire. If I ever see those guys again I owe you some brewskis for sure!! Also thanks to the bears and racoons for not eating my sandwich and drinking my summit red bull. \:D/

Cheers!

Damn helmet hair! Great way to ruin an otherwise proud moment on Maroon Peak.

From somewhere along the Tour d'Abyss. The self-timer on my camera wouldn't take clear pictures; this was the best one.
