so yes doing the math ammonooscu is longer but not as steep grade then tucks ( anybody have the info on Osceola).
For preparations & all that I'd say eat a lot of carbs the night before, get good rest, get up early eat some protein and get a very early start then see what happens. Just bring plenty of water /snacks + listen to your body & pay attention to the weather as the mountain will be there tomorrow.......
