There are lots of reasons to go backpacking in the winter.
You're reason could be "Just to see if you could do it", or maybe
you wanted to test out some new gear. But those were not the reasons for this trip,
we'll not the driving reasons anyway.
The main reason for this trip was that Greg is getting married on the 28th of February 2004
on the beach in the Bahamas and this was his Bachelor party. After all, what better way to
celebrate the end of your single life than by going to the opposite temperature extreme of where you are
This was Greg's way of getting back to the simple roots of his past with the people that
would have been his groomsmen if he would have had a traditional wedding.
