Heading to Mount Wilhelm

This weekend I will be traveling with Jeff, Susan, Jessica, Kristen, and some Papua New Guinea guys to Mount Wilhelm. Mt. Wilhelm is the highest mountain in PNG at 14,790 feet. When we flew to Madang we saw Mt. Wilhelm in the clouds above us. It was neat to think that, Lord willing, I will be climbing above where we were flying. The pic on the R is from Wikipedia, but that is our goal, the top. Our plan is to leave on Friday and hike part way to a base camp. Saturday, we will wake up early, like 0300, to start our ascent to the top and then return to base camp. On Sunday, we will hike back to the car and drive home.
