WELCOME TO DUSKPATROL!

This site was created as a journal about adventure in the mountains, on the bike, in the ocean and enjoying the great outdoors. From time to time I will post these experiences so others may learn more about them and hopefully enjoy them as well.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to drop me a line to make suggestions!

A DATE with the Mountaineer's Route!

Well, I found out recently that I won a lottery bid for a permit to go up the mountaineer's route on mount Whitney! This is very exciting, as I may, once and for all, be able to tick of one of my life lists of out door achievements.

So to start preparing for the task, I have been hitting the gym. Whitney will crush you. I have made one other attempt, and was in good shape, but the rest of the crowd I went with did not train and they prevented a summit. This week I hit a new milestone burning 857 calories in one hour of my stationary bike time trial, so hopefully I am on my way.

I have also started a page about this trip on my website. Go check it out!
