Trip Report

Since my last ill-fated trip with Dr. Phil in an ill-advised November attempt of Stenton Peak and subsequent follow up failure on an unnamed pile of choss nearby, my mountain mojo has been sitting somewhere between a 0 and a 1 with 10 being the amount of mojo required for peaks like McConnell and 8 being the amount required to get me out of bed at 04:00 on a weekend morning. A mojo of around '5' or higher will usually allow me to reply to the many trip idea texts I get from Phil on a weekly basis. :P In my defense I think I summited something like 70 peaks in 2018 and I put around 6.32 million steps (5000+ kms) on my step counter for the year (mostly from my daily training / de-stressing walks around the city), so I think my mojo deserved a short break. I'm not 20 years old anymore!
