Hey there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Vern Tejas reporting for Team Climb For A Smile. We have made our way from Vinson Base Camp after a hearty meal. We’ve had a pancake and bacon breakfast after we slept in, and we’ve finally, with clear air, was able to fly all the way to Union Glacier .
So we’re now at Union Glacier. We’re set up in a wind storm, great for kite skiing but not so great for sleeping, and we’re resting and waiting for a plane. Hopefully tomorrow, the big bird, the Illuyshin 76 will come and take us back to South America. So we’re doing better. We’re getting closer, one step closer to home. So stay tuned for the next unfolding of the chapter of Team Climb For A Smile. And hopefully we’ll be talking to you next from, wonderful tip of South America, Punta Arenas.
So ciao ciao for now! We’ll talk to you soon.
