Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Vern Tejas with laryngitis reporting in from 12,395 feet on the side of Mount Vinson.
It’s been a long, cold, and brutal day of reading books, eating snacks, and sleeping. Everybody’s bearing up well though, under the pressure, as we’re preparing for our summit attempt. If the weather holds, we’re planning on getting up bright and early tomorrow morning and stocking our bellies full of a healthy, hearty meal and heading to the very top of Antarctica.
So I want you to stay tuned for the further adventures of Team Pancake (yelled as a group in background as well as Vern)!
