Your Mission: Depart from site (P) at dusk and snowshoe upstream on (hopefully) frozen Cascade River. There will be nine small ponds connected by the sometimes rapidly moving stream with thin ice. Tip number one to keep from breaking through the ice: "Don't go first (in Paul's case, don't go third)". Proceed at night until utter exhaustion. Then, drink more coffee and snow shoe some more while chanting: "Mission first." Regardless, in the second night or so we should reach the mysterious "Plain of Jars." Should you accept this mission, pick up your map at the BWAC Annual Meeting on February 24!
