 North - South Presi Traverse 1/4/06
8:30am to 6:30pm. Tim said 4am start? I said, Um, how about 8am?
He was the one to arrive a little bit late :oops: No matter, as we had a really fun day.

The northern Presi's are in really good shape, dispite the thin snow cover.
From the north end of Monroe loop through the summit of Eisenhower, the southern Presi's are very icy on the trails.

The sun & warm temps were a treat on this January day, and there were a good # of folks out on the northern Presi's. After we left the summit of Washington, we didn't bump into anyone, and unfortunately were too late to encounter Mohamed & company down on Pierce.

Thanx for the Pancake roll ups Tim!

Incredible! That's difficult enough in the summer but to do it in winter in one day is amazing.
Advil and cocoa on me! :wink:

Chris ~ You are SO right. O2 is NOT available at that hour.

Pucknuts61 ~ That's Glucosamine & Stoneyfield Farm Smoothies :)

Glucosamine 1500 mg for this old mtn hiker every day. BTW: it actually works. The mtns are so beautiful in the winter!

I'm DEFINITELY going to try that. My knees have been bad for too long and I've heard a lot of good things about Glucosamine.

Mtn Magic is dead-on :!: 1500mg daily. Glucosamine Sulfate. I've been taking it since 2000. I totally believe in it's effects. It can be expensive if bought from the local stores that supply supplements ($30 for 120 caps)

Try this
www.swansonvitamins.com
currently $3.14 for the same

Thanks Cath, I'll give them a shot!

EDIT: From what I hear, chondroitin does a lot as well; there's an option for glucosamine and chondroitin (with MSM). Anyone take that one? WebMD says that the two are often taken together for best results...
