Andrew called at 1:24 pm on June 21st with this dispatch:
“Hello! This is Andrew calling in with a final dispatch. Everyone on the team except Aidan and I has flown out. We’re just sitting at Base Camp waiting for the next flight. Aidan just spoke to K2 Aviation and it looks like we’ll probably get out of here tomorrow. In the meantime, we’ll be playing Frisbee and soaking up the sun. It’s clear and sunny right now. I’m sure everyone’s relaxing, showing, and eating a delicious dinner back in Talkeetna by now. Tell everyone we’ll see you all tomorrow and we had a great time. Thanks for a great expedition.”
