Happy Thanksgiving to the team on the Ice and from the team on the Ice to family and friends. All is well. They haven’t stopped moving since they left home back on the 23rd. Flights, packing, briefings, gear checks. Then, more flights to the Ice and they’ve already made their carry and move to C1. Just relayed that weather was a little unsettled now but that they would make their carry to high camp at the first opportunity. Then it’s wait — wait for the right couple of days to move to high camp and summit. C1, not high camp, is the good place to wait out any inclement weather.
Bottom line is that the team is in a great spot and doing well. So, for now, there’s nothing but good news from the Ice, and we’ll let you know as soon as they can get in their carry to high camp. Hard to believe that things are moving this smoothly, but that’s a good thing.
