Comments
Comments: This was a failed Pemi Loop. One member dropped out at Flume. We had good time till Lincoln where another member was taking too long breaks. Learned some lessons and will re-attempt in the future. We had a great day for the attempt but it was not to be on this day. Pemi Loop is tough and I did a poor job of assessing our groups fitness.


Skookumchuck was a real mess, blowdowns, brushy and real mudpits in there. I can see why it's not often used. 16 miles and 5400' of elevation.
