Anyone think that a 24lb Pack is too much to Summit with? Or is that reasonable?

Yeah I think were going to rent some crampons when we get up that way. Don't think I need an axe though.

My buddy summited Rainier last year, drank a can of vitamin R at the top. After seeing that picture i decided I wanted to do that. Then I saw how much it cost. Drinking beer at home is much cheaper and safer. But if i ever have thousands of dollars and can't find any good use for it but to pay to hike to the tallest hill to drink a beer than I will be all over it.
EDIT* smossysgirl, bring nutterbutters. Just think if you walked up to the top of st. Helens how good a nutterbutter would taste. With chocolate milk?

Lol St Helens is probably rated easy compaired to Rainier. It only ran us 22$ for passes 2 months in advance and cost of food/gas/utilities needed for the hike. Thats about it.

Exactly. I'll be at base camp with his hiking buddy's spastic wife - who absolutely HATES the outdoors I might add... Had to twist a few arms and legs and promise her a bottle of wine to even get her to come for the night >__< ...

I need the boys back safe, and in a timely manner haha.
