Denali Team 4 in Talkeetna

Denali Team 4 in Talkeetna
Everyone on the Alpine Ascents Denali Team 4 expedition arrived at the Fireweed Station Bed and Breakfast just outside Talkeetna around 8:30pm today. Everyone is in good spirits and isready to start. Everyone has their baggage and we will meet at 7am tomorrow for breakfast as a team and will then do gear checks, have lunch, go to the park service briefing and hopefully fly into the mountain with Talkeetna Air Taxi at 3:30pm. The team has already come up with a team name and we will now be know as the “Illegal Monkeys” because the entire team was talking about some woman that caused a number of flight delays in Denver trying to bring a money through security and onto a flight. Well that is it for now. We will continue to send cybercasts as we are able with our satellite phone but they will be audio files from now on. Brien
