Phil Ershler called in to the IMG office to report from Antarctica at 3:15pm PST (8:15 pm Antarctica time).
The Mt. Vinson expedition is off to a great start! All arrived in Punta Arenas on time and with their luggage. They had a busy day sorting and packing then flew onto the ice on November 27th on schedule. The team spent one night on the Union Glacier at Patriot Hills then flew to Vinson Base on the 28th. They carried to Camp I today (November 29) and weather permitting will move up to Camp 1 tomorrow. The weather currently is very good and the entire team is healthy and happy. Phil will try to call in more regularly as he is able and as the team progresses up the mountain.
As reported by George Dunn from the IMG office.
