Adventure Guides Team enjoyed a rest day training at Low Camp with a delicious noodle dinner to end the day

Hi, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Alpine Ascents Mount Vinson Expedition with the Japanese group from Adventure Guides.

Today is Tuesday, December 31st and 7:20pm and we’re just sitting down and cooking some dinner here in our dining tent, here at Low Camp on Mount Vinson. And we’re cooking up some soma and some Japanese noodles.

And everybody’s doing great; had a great day here resting and training. And myself and my fellow Guide Masuki Sugimoto have had a great time here training the Team. And we’re looking forward to a nice day tomorrow on the mountain.

So everybody’s well and we’ll check in soon.

Happy New Year!
