Team 1/Out and About flew from Base Camp to Talkeetna then headed for dinner and drinks, while some continued homeward

Hey everyone, it’s Out and About/Alp #1. It’s the 28th of May about 6:30pm here in Talkeetna, Alaska.

We were able to fly out at about 9:30 this morning from Base Camp on the SE Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. The team came down from 14,200 feet last night, through the night, taking advantage of cool travel conditions and firm snow. And we got into Base Camp around 7:45.

We were able to fly out at 9:30. And Cordula and Ludwig had to immediately jump on a shuttle and get to Anchorage so they could make their flight tonight back to Germany. And Micah, Chris, and I are going to enjoy a nice dinner and some drinks with Tom and Hobbes over at the great Fireweed Station.

We want to thank everybody for following along. We had a great trip, a great expedition. And stay tuned for more Alpine Ascents Denali trips starting soon.
