      I commanded the wind to stop the sleeping bags as I charged up to the ridge with screaming lungs. If the bags stopped for 60 seconds, we would have them. I crested the ridge, took one look, and kept driving. Both bags teetered inches from a large glacial lake. The slightest puff of wind would send them into the water. There was slush everywhere, and it was not clear exactly where the edge of the lake was, but I kept slogging through the slush. The Queen would not steal our beds!
      Brad stopped and watched intently as I slugged through knee-deep slush to the first bag and on to the second. I had them! For the first time since leaving the tent, I stopped and looked back. Chest heaving, Brad stood at the edge of the slush. A hundred yards away, Stu, still clutching the first bag, stood on the ridge like a silent sentinel. The three of us sucked air for a gravid minute. Finally, in a voice that carried clearly, Stu said, “Thereís more than one way to lose it up here, isn’t there?” We trudged pensively back to the tents clutching our windfall prizes. Our 600-yard “keystone-cops” chase was just the beginning of Killer Storm.
