Greg Vernovage has the second IMG Vinson team for the season in Punta Arenas, Chile now. All members are there with all their luggage. Shopping is pretty much done and most of it will be packed by this afternoon. Each member’s personal gear needs to be carefully checked this afternoon, too.
Tomorrow’s the briefing with the flight service and the crew of the IL 76, the huge Russian cargo airplane that will take the team to 80 degrees South. If weather permits, they fly on the 29th. That means New Year’s Eve and Day will be on the Ice. Amazing!
We’ll keep you posted as they work their way up the highest mountain at the bottom of the world.
