As soon as I get one dispatch completed, my partner, George, calls again from the Patriot Hills. Seems as though the meteorologist likes what he’s seeing and the plan now is for the IL 76 to arrive at 80 degrees south at 2:15 am on the morning of the 12th. Sweet!. By the time the crew gets back to South America, to the hotel, showered and cleaned it, it’s going to be too late to fly home on the 12th but that’s not such a bad thing. They’ll be able to relax, enjoy dinner together tomorrow evening and then start the trek home on the 13th.
This brings to conclusion another incredible season on the Ice. 100% on the summit. 16 customers and guides on top! Best of all is that everyone was able to climb safely and hopefully had some fun in the process. so, this wraps up our ‘coverage’ until November 2010.
