Once the entire group arrived yesterday we did an informative orientation, a gear check, and then finished the evening with a Welcome dinner. Everyone arrived with all of their luggage, which is always a great way to start an expedition. Today we have completed the check-in process for our flight down to Antarctica and will have a briefing on our flight in a couple hours. Things are moving quite quickly here and it looks like we will be flying this afternoon!
The next update will more than likely be from Antarctica. We will be coming up with a team name soon but for now you can follow along with our unnamed team here!
Guide Jangbu Sherpa and myself are packing, shopping, and preparing for our first climb of the season on the southern most continent and the highest peak there: Mt Vinson. We will be picking up half of the group today and the rest of the team members tomorrow to begin this expedition. We look forward to 4 different teams and expeditions for our 2019-2020 season on the ice. We’ll be keeping you updated here for all of the fun this season. Stay tuned and follow along!
Congrats team on a safe and successful expedition!
