Denali Team 3 - Camp One

Denali Team 3: May 23 - June 12, 2010
Guides: Angela Seidling, Alaina Robertson

Climbers: Paul Rose, Joan Clofent, Paul Watkins, Carol Masheter, Simon Boaz, Bob Sullivan

Monday, May 24, 5:56 pm Pacific Standard Time

Lead Guide Angela Seidling called and left this message:

“Hey everyone this is Angela from team three calling to say hello! We made it up to camp one today in a single carry. It was another absolutely beautiful day on the Kahiltna glacier. We were able to leave early enough so the first half of our day was in nice cool temperatures, and then it warmed up for the rest of the afternoon.

We made some critical team decisions today. We decided to come up with multiple team names over the course of the trip. We are coming up with these names depending on how we feel.

So for right now, we have a name for each of the two rope teams. Rope team one is currently named “The Reruns,” and rope team two has named themselves “Prime Time.”

In good puzzle master style, we thought it would be fun if you all (friends and family) try to come up with what those names meant. Good luck! We will try and get a hold of the office during office hours so we can hear what people guessed the team names mean.

Alright, talk to you soon, bye everybody!”

Ok....team names...

The Reruns= The 3 climbers who have been on Denali already

Prime Time= Couple guesses:
Either 1. You're being a bit cocky :)
or 2. According to Wikipedia, Prime Time is television programming in the evening or the time with the most viewers...hmmm, so they like watching television in the evening? However, dictionary.com says prime means "The age of ideal physical perfection and intellectual vigor" so I'm going to go with that one! You guys are in the prime of your lives (but also still a little cocky, just kidding!).

Best of wishes to you all!!!!

I think I agree with Holly on this one - 'The Reruns' is a pretty obvious one.
However, I also feel 'Prime Time' is as a result of age, fitness and mental strength.
Can't wait for more posts!
