We received a voice mail from Greg late last night (3am in Antarctica) as they were boarding the IL-76 bound for Punta Arenas, Chile – “We’re coming home”. Schedules are hard to keep given the nature of the terrain, but this time it all went according to plan.
After a quick siesta Greg Skyped in from his hotel room to say that all went smoothly – just a long flight. They’ll clean up and head out for one last dinner to celebrate, then it’s time to jump on another long flight.
No rest for the weary… we’ve got Greg booked on our next Winter Seminar here on Mt. Rainier which starts Sunday. We figure 18 hours is plenty time for Greg to get things in order before he heads back into the field.
