  • PART 2-
-
Before arriving at the cabin, one has to make a final climb of about 200 meters to the top. Because of heavy snowfall, fatigue, and the simple fact that we were carrying too much stuff, we made a collective decision to leave most of our supplies behind in the snow. The plan was to sleep, gather our strength, and come back for the sled full of supplies in the morning. It only took Joey and me a single beer to pull ourselves together and head back for our supplies that same night. -

After a very cold first night in the cabin, I woke up to Joey and Max messing around with the wood stove. I think we all heaved a sigh of relief when we heard the first crackles coming from the fire. That was probably the moment we knew for sure we'd be okay. Once the fire was on, my buddies pretty much instantly started taking care of me. A mild fever and a bad cough had burdened me from day 1 of our trip. Talk about bad timing. Luckily I was soon back on my feet, and we started to make ourselves at home.

The view from the cabin was amazing. Doing chores, shoveling snow and chopping wood were fun to do on their own, but with a view like this, it easily became my favourite pastime. Once settled in, we were ready to explore the area a bit. We went sledding, and had a few hikes, but we had to conserve our energy because we hadn't brought enough food with us for a whole week. A bunch of our supplies were still in the car because we couldn't bring all of it. This ment that during the first half of our stay in the cabin, we mostly had to survive on crackers with peanut butter, soup, and a couple of protein bars. Needless to say, we lost a lot of weight, and me in particular. -
-
A few days later we had completely run out of food. The day we had feared had finally come. We would have to hike all the way back to the car to get the rest of our supplies. That morning we strapped ourselves in for 8 hours of hiking through knee-high snow. We were quiet, and we were determined. You could feel the tension in the air. It felt like we were going to war.-
