if you have not been on a trip with me(so i can get an idea of how you will fit in):
please explain to me what you will bring to camp on snow. also, please let me know how the amount of "important" stuff you bring either won't slow you down or that your fitness is beyond that being a problem.
please let me know about your recent trips/fitness.

i will try to respond to your permission requests in < 36hrs.

* for all our my trips, if we do not change its date or destination (both possibilities are always on the table), one important note to make clear - we are very pragmatic with regard to weather. if the forecast or conditions are not favorable, we will either change destinations at the last minute or cancel the trip.
