Team 8/Booyahkahshaw descends safely back to Camp 2, and prepares to fly back to Talkeetna in the morning

Hey, good evening, this is Phil with Alp Team 8, otherwise known as Team Booyahkahshaw. We made it safely back to 11,200 camp, otherwise known as Camp 2. Just relaxing, eating, trying to stay out of the sun, really, really warm temperatures on the mountain.

And we’re going to be back at the airstrip tomorrow, we’re probably going to wake up at around midnight and travel the six hours back to the airstrip, hopefully hop on one of the first few flights in the morning and be back in Talkeetna tomorrow morning. So this will conclude the regular cybercasts, and you will be able to be able to be in touch with your friends family and loved ones tomorrow at some point in the day.

Thanks for following, see you soon.
