Dispatches/Events

Live from the Rocky Mountains with Outward Bound

This is the first test of our cell phone blogging/dispatch system. We’re sitting above 10,000 feet in the Rockies outside of Leadville, Colorado. Amazingly, we have cell reception. And the battery in my iPhone is not dead yet.

Day One of our Outward Bound course is complete. Lots of gear sorting, today, followed by hours spent high in trees — in ropes, of course. The weather threatened all day, with possible snow and rain. But it never opened up.

The team — Steve, Ike, Cody, Mike, and the film crew — will camp out under tarps tonight. The MSR stoves should be going any second now. I’m hungry and looking forward to dinner.

Here are a few camera-phone pics:
