Hey guys it’s Dylan calling for the dispatch. We’re calling from 8,000 feet on Denali. All is well this evening. We are nestled up in our tents. The guys are eating jelly bellies and watching The Big Lebowski. Here are some messages I’ll pass along:

Bryan says, “Have a spectacular workout on my birthday, thanks for the card Pam.”

Andy says, “ To Maureen, my wife. Waiting to se you. Love you wish you were here.”

Jay (this message was hard to hear because of the sat phone static)


Marty says, “Chris Jack Bill and Hugo, miss you guys!”.

Everyone is strong, it’s pretty hot in the afternoon and freezing in the night. Food is good, views are great. Awesome avalanches in the northeast fork. Talk to you guys tomorrow.
