Both Expedition Teams have flown from Antarctica back to the tip of South America cheering for their adventure!

Hello there friends, family, and loved ones. This is Team Climb For A Smile and Team Four Continents all reporting in from beautiful downtown Punta Arenas.

Ta ta for now from the whole team! (Team members cheering and yelling “bye” in background.)
