Angela called in with a dispatch at 11:30 pm on May 22nd:

"Hi everyone! This is Angela from Team 4, calling to say ‘Hi’ and letting you all know we made it into Base Camp today. We flew out of Talkeeta at about 5:30 pm or so and landed on the glacier yesterday evening. We spent the evening setting up our camp and getting settled in. We had a gourmet dinner of Thai noodles and lots of cookies for dessert! Tomorrow we plan to do some skills in the morning and a single carry to Camp 1. So, we’ll check in tomorrow and let you know how it goes. Bye!"
