I've always thought it would be really fun to re-trace the route traveled by Alferd Packer, notorious cannibal and failed mountain guide, and what better time to do it than before the snow melts and the winter storms subside?
We can meet at the Mountaineers (ask inside if you can't find our group), and then carpool to Utah, where we will begin our trek. I think we pretty much head east, and then bend slightly north from there. After a couple weeks' worth of walking, I'm sure we'll end up at our final destination of Breckenridge, Colorado. What could possibly go wrong?
And also I think we should then go to the University of Colorado-Boulder's campus and have a celebratory meal at the Packer Grill, named for this illustrious man. It's not that much farther west. I mean, east.
This will be schpadoinkle! I hope you can join me. :)
10 essentials, but you probably don't need to bring extra food. Or a map. I think we'll be fine.
If anything bad happens, I will flee to Wyoming and will probably not get convicted anyway, so don't bother to sue me.

And here's the story of Alferd Packer (he's real)
