This almost didn't happen. My alarm never went off, but somehow I woke up about 20 minutes before I was to meet Joe. I rushed around and luckily didn't forget anything.

Our first attempt, Joe gave us a 20% chance of getting to our destintation. I looked at it as a recon hike, knowing we'd be back again prepared with new beta.

The hike was a huge challenge which I had been thinking about all week. Joe had been thinking about it for several years. We started in the dark and my orange duct taped sneakers were fending off the cholla. It wasn't until later in the day when a nice friendly cholla nuzzled up close and personal. Joe's triplog explains everything else, and the hike description will explain the history. Thanks Joe for this awesome adventure and for slowing down so I could jump back in the truck. Sorry I slammed the door ;).

The only thing else I'll add is... treat the cave with reverence and leave only footsteps which will disappear in a short time.
