Subject: The Gang is all Here!
The gang is all here. Last pieces of luggage are in and gear checks complete.
This team is dialed! Just finished the Flight briefing and bags will get weighed and taken this afternoon. We have made it through the first challenges of Vinson, arriving in Punta Arenas with our luggage.
The weather here is perfect, no wind and a few clouds in the sky. We are going to take a late lunch and stand by this evening. Late lunch includes the standard trip to Lomito’s for a burger! Perhaps one of the best burgers on the world tour.
They are quite optimistic that we will fly tonight….so the hurry up AND wait begins at 6:30 pm.
That is the latest from Punta Arenas.
