burly_blackhall The snow and rain stopped so we could finally finish bolting our creations. That's 3 routes in 3 sessions done. All they need now is more cleaning and the First Ascents. #WOTwall #TunnelMountain #getoutside 20h

bozotime Well, that was one for the books!!! I haven't really done anything challenging in my life, as I consider myself to be lazy. This adventure I got to share with these beauties was definitely the toughest thing I've gone through in life, both physically and mentally. I challenge you all to take on a challenge out of your comfort zone, DO IT!!! 😎

Long story short, 4 days prior to the big day, I fell off my road bike and messed up my bad knee (couldn't walk properly for 2 days). The day of the hike, it wasn't much better, but I still went. Half way down our first peak of Cascade, I was in so much pain that I was gonna throw in the towel. With the support and patience I got from the fellas (and 3 Aleve pills throughout the day; equal to the total of what I've taken in my lifetime), I was able to finish the day with the crew. Very thankful to have been able to share this crazy day with you guys, much love!!! Here's the times for our hike:

Cascade
5:32-10:58 (5 hours and 26 minutes, round trip from Norquay parking lot)
Rundle
11:50-17:11 (5 hours and 21 minutes, round trip from Bow Falls parking lot)
Sulphur
17:38-20:03 (2 hours and 25 minutes, round trip from gondola parking lot)
Tunnel
20:14-21:17 (1 hour and 3 minutes, round trip; from St.Julien Road parking lot)

When we started planning this fundraiser/4 peak hike back in July, we weren't really sure what to expect. The overwhelming support and love we've received is unfathomable, it's been quite a journey. We'd like to thank all of you beautiful people for everything you do, cuz without y'all, none of this would've been possible. Definitely was fuel for us to finish the day in one piece!!! We'd like to thank our good friend Jim Kwan for supplying us with the shirts (pictured) and goodies to keep us fuelled!!! Please go check out his FB page at Defending Awesome Shirts and give it some love @banffunion #bozotime #bozohiking #fundraiser #fundraising #bipolar #mentalhealth #mentalwealth #stigma #stigmabusters #appreciatelife #perseverance #4peaksinoneday #banff #mybanff #banfflife #travelalberta #exploretherockies #canadianrockies #cascademountain #rundlemountain #sulphurmountain #tunnelmountain

dreaknufken The smoke cleared in Banff, and striated granite mountains are once again visible for miles. The Canadian Rockies never cease to amaze. #banff #CanadianRockies #tunnelmountain #howdoimovehere 3d
  •   advodna_ann Really looking forward to hanging out with you guys!! So glad the smoke has cleared up! 2d
  •   jesscurren We'll be in Canada soon as well...only the wrong location. I think we missed the memo. @advodna_dave @advodna_ann 2d
  •   advodna_dave @jesscurren Huh, we sent it weeks ago. Are you still at the Utah address? I need you to stay a bit east anyway, so there's a chance we can meet up near Jackson Center in mid Oct! 2d
  •   jesscurren @advodna_dave haha we have had trouble with our mail. Don't worry, we move slow enough there's a good chance you'll catch us. Or blow right by. Have fun you guys!! 2d
  •   dreaknufken @brittneysays seriously put it way up on your bucket list. I've been to 30+ countries and these are the most beautiful mountains I've ever seen. 2d
  •   dreaknufken @jesscurren Dangit, we will have to catch up elsewhere! We're in Utah all Oct. and then I'm not sure. Likely hitting up this winters Borrego madness as well. 2d
  •   dreaknufken @advodna_ann yeah you guys are coming at the right time. That smoke was really really bad. Sore throat and runny eyes every day. 2d
  •   jesscurren @dreaknufken Utah in Oct is amazing! We'll be in SLC mid-Oct to see family but not likely back to the west until next summer. If I can last that long.... 2d
