Team 3/The Tundra Wookies are stomping out the airstrip ready to get to hot showers but unfortunately still in some fog waiting to fly

Hey everyone, this is Eric Salazar with Alpine Ascents Team 3.

And we are stuck on the airstrip…(transmission garbled)…at us to start stomping out the airstrip and everyone came out and stomped it out. And then the plane came and picked about 20 people up and then the fog moved in. So we’re still sitting on the airstrip hoping it’ll go away, but I don’t think it will.

So please hope for the best. We’re all trying to get out of here so we can have a shower and a burger. Well, talk to you all later; we’ll keep you in the loop. Bye.
