Ok, this hike is officially on the calendar. I am flying into Boston that morning. I land at 6:02am. I will grab some food and drive to the trailhead. I should arrive somewhere around 10am. I can keep everyone updated as to when I land so you can time it better. Tickets are bought. I fly into BWO on Friday morning, from Boston, so I don't have long. This hike will be rain or shine. 3.6 miles round trip easy hike.
Thursday, 08/20 is the Skills Course in Red Lodge. Friday the adventure begins. Saturday is hopefully Summit day. Sunday we exit. Building an extra day in there for weather. This adventure is closed. We already have our 4 climbers. This is the highest point in the State of Montana at 12,799 ft. Placing this on your Climber's Resume is an awesome achievement. We are using Beartooth Mountain Guides.
It will have been 2 years since we first saw this event and said, "I have to do that". Well, here it is. The Red Bull 400. As of the day of the writing of this meetup, 01/25/2020, Me, Jared, and Ricky are going. We are looking for at least 1 more person so that we will be bale to do the Team Heats. Teams of 4 are mandatory. We also get to run the Individual heats as well. We have a VRBO rented for that weekend in Park City. Let us know if you are interested. https://www.redbull.com/int-en/red-bull-400-2020-dates-preview?fbclid=IwAR2HZfRNoeMhrEcV23AAex8JM7K1WcsAPLo_mrDywTE7ggqM772_8R_p7UA Registration will be open in the next 30-45 days, but they have released the official schedule already. Flying in on Friday and flying back out on Sunday.
As most of you know this will conclude the Weekend Adventures Series and Hikes that TLC has been putting on for years. Hopefully you will be a part of this last adventure. On Friday we will travel about 3 1/2 hours to the town on Clifton, where will check into our hotels rooms. There are 3 places to stay in the area. I will be staying Friday and Saturday Night, and departing around 8am Sunday morning to come home, sometime after breakfast. 1. https://www.hotelreardon.com/ 2. https://www.clifton-hotel.com/ 3. http://www.morencitown.com/things-to-do/where-to-stay/ The hike we will do is the Ring the bell for Freedom Hike, aka, Maes Hill All-Veterans Memorial, which is a 6.5 mile hike with 350 ft of AEG and is a trail the entire way. I have wanted to do this hike for a long time now and ring this famous bell that overlooks the town of Clifton. https://www.cometoclifton.com/great-outdoors/hiking-trails.php https://www.facebook.com/maresbluff/
