Good evening, this is John from Alp 5. Our group is currently in Talkeetna, Alaska. We did not fly today due to weather.
We took over an airplane hangar this morning and we practiced our crevasse rescue skills. Everybody got to ascend a free hanging line in the hanger with their prussik knots to simulate getting themselves out of a crevasse in the event of a fall. Everybody did a great job. We all had a great time.
We then went to the airport and we waited on standby, unfortunately we were not able to fly. We are spending the night at the Fireweed Station; we had a fantastic pasta dinner with Tom and Hobbes. And we’re looking at blue skies right now, so we are very hopeful to fly in the morning.
Everybody’s doing well. Our spirits are all great. We will catch up with you all tomorrow night at the same time. Good night everybody.
