We get up a little early the next day to make time for our Reno departures. There is some question about what to burn and what to haul out. I don’t weigh in since the candidate criteria are already much stricter than what I learned in Idaho where burning was according to (or rather in violation of) Hume’s law, deriving “is” from “ought” — if it is burnable then it ought to be burned.
Snow is falling fast as others finally clip into skis and me into snowshoes. There has been some trepidation about the outbound descents on cross-country skis. Jesse offered tips involving pizza and fries, which sound delicious. The fresh snow should help matters with better traction and softer landings.
