Nice to report that Greg Vernovage and team of 6 climbers has arrived in Punta and with all their gear.
Shopping is complete, packing is complete, their briefing is complete and they will be loading the big Russian cargo jet, an IL76, with gear this afternoon. Plan is for a flight to the Ice the morning of the 29th. Forecast is promising. That would put the team right on schedule.
When/if the calls comes tomorrow morning that the flight is a ‘go’, it’ll be a mad rush to grab that last shower and breakfast, dress, clear hotel bills and be ready for the pick up. Got to love that.
