I scooted up Mailbox in 78 minutes one time only to turn around and see a dude jogging up right behind me.

"How'd you do?"
"58 minutes", he says, "Not bad for a second lap."

If I didn't know better, I'd think that must have been SuperHikr!

I was going up the Cascadian Couloir with the Mountaineers in about 1969 when we were passed by Gene Prater. He and a couple of others had just come from Camp Schurman after giving up a summit attempt on Rainier early that morning and they had driven over to the Teanaway and beat us to the summit.

Wow, that's impressive!

What's the farthest you've driven for a day trip?

I drove to the Marble Mountain Sno Park and snowshoed/hiked a loop up and around June Lake this January. Probably somewhere between 7.5 and 8.5 hours of driving that day.

We were trying to loop around the Loowit Trail instead of the Pika trail and lost the route at a washout. Had to backtrack to June Lake.... Second photo shows the best view we had of Loowit that day. Was it worth it? Well... we got out of the house in January.

My late husband was also on that climb in '69, and enjoyed meeting the Praters again under more favorable conditions than the first time he met them.  He first met Gene and Bill Prater on Stuart the previous year when they were the first to arrive, along with Barry Prather, shortly after sunrise to assist with the rescue of one of the climbers with my husband's climbing party who fell and broke his leg on the descent at about 7500'.  My husband, Bill, not only had great admiration for their mountaineering skills, but also the efficiency and precision of their teamwork in moving the injured climber to a location where a helicopter could pick him up.  The helicopter was able to make the pick-up with only two preliminary passes over the site.

There were several members of the climbing party who made the trip over the route from the parking lot, over Long's Pass, and up to the accident site at 7500' and back three times within an approximate 24-hour time frame in order to help carry out a successful rescue.

That's amazing.

My mentor that got me started in climbing, Les Kramer, grew up in Ellensburg and went to school with that bunch. I had the pleasure of going on a couple of winter climbs with the Praters and Prather back in those days.

The climber who broke his leg on the Stuart climb in '68 was also on that same climb you were on in '69.  My late husband lead both climbs.

I got in the car in Issaquah, picked up my partner, drove to Shasta, climbed the west ridge, skied back to the car, drove back to Ashland for dinner, then drove out to the McLoughlin trailhead where we slept in the car.

That was all without sleeping. Not sure how long I was awake between getting up the day we left (I think it was a work day) and falling asleep at McLoughlin.

I guess that's not technically a day trip, but it was a shitload of driving and climbing without sleep.

That makes me wonder, what's the maximum amount of weight a person can physically add in a day, excluding things like water and undigested food?  You lose 2.3 pounds every day, almost entirely in the form of CO2.  Clearly you can make more than that per day, but what, double?  These are the sorts of things I think about when I really should be doing other things.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bill Prater on the summit of Mt Dainiel in 2000 -- when he was 75 -- he was still moving respectably -- a good life goal.
