Denali Team 8: June 10 to June 30 - Dispatch #24

Guides: Andrew Yasso, Mary Harlan, Paul Rosser

Climbers: Geoff Strommer (Oregon), Jennifer Logan (UK), Paul Davies (UK), Steven Hart (Florida), David Chambers (Texas), Brian Roark (Texas), Virginia Cross (Australia), Selina Dicker (UK)

Andrew called at 3:05 PST on 6/29 with the following dispatch:

This is Andrew calling form team 8 and we are back in Talkeetna!  Three hours ago, we were sitting on the glacier, some were sleeping, some were playing frisbee, some were playing Uno.  Then we got a 10 minute warning that the plane was on it's way, so we had to pack up quickly and get the heck out of there. Three planes showed up to take everyone from Teams 7 and 8 and all the remaining gear from the season.  

I'm sitting here now and it's a nice sunny day in Talkeetna, and everyone is getting things sorted with their travel and lodging before parting ways.  Everyone from the two teams are all meeting up for dinner and we're going to take Talkeetna by storm!  We are all looking forward to food that doesn't come out of a bag (or eventually go back in one, for that matter!)

Thanks to all of you for rooting us on and giving your support along the way, and we will be home soon!
