"Hey Guys!  We officially made it to the glacier this morning.  Yesterday we started at 2pm from 14,000 feet and arrived at 5:36am this morning to Base Camp.  All the climbers flew out right away.  Mary and I are waiting for the second flight out, which will be soon.  Oh, here's the airplane.  I have to go-  I will call again later!"


We received an update at 1:50pm that everyone has landed safely in Talkeetna!   Hot showers and burgers are on order!
