Team Asian Invasion back in Talkeetna after a few days descending the mountain concluding their successful expedition!


Hello everyone, this is Ben and Peter calling in here with Team Asian Invasion. I apologize for not giving a call the last couple days, but we had some long days getting down from High Camp. Everybody’s doing well.

We ended up coming down from High Camp down to 14,000 feet and we ended up spending the night there. We had one member that injured her knee and had a tough time getting down, so it took us awhile to get down to 14 that day. And then we were coming up with a plan as to what to do from there and to get everybody else down safely. We ended up, everyone leaving 14 yesterday and with the help of some rangers, we got the one member with the knee injury down to 11. And then Peter and myself used the sled to get her safely back to Base Camp and flown out today. So we all made it to Base Camp today on a beautiful day. And we’re back in Talkeetna now.

Thanks for following along in our cybercasts and our successful expedition. Everybody’s safe and sound now back in Talkeetna and doing well. And thanks for following along. Bye.
