Team Alp 2 enjoys pizza for lunch in Talkeetna before their flight to the Kahiltna Glacier, then heads to bed ready to start their adventure

Good evening friends, family, and loved ones, Paul Koubek calling in the cybercast for Alp 2.

Today is Friday, May 10th, and after a full day of packing and organizing, we ate lunch at Mountain High Pizza Pie, were briefed by the National Park Service and went out to Talkeetna Air Taxi, where we were able to fly half an hour early, and made it in to the SE Fork of the Kahiltna.

After eating hamburgers for dinner the group went to bed satisfied, with all members of the team safe, sound, and on the glacier, ready to start our adventure.

Thanks for following our cybercast, more posts will follow.
