2014 Denali Team 2 - Dispatch 21
Trip Dates: May 11-31, 2014
Update Received: May 29, 2014. 9:30pm PST. Team 2 is still in Base Camp where it is just too snowy and too cloudy for the planes to get in. They have plenty of food and fuel, so everyone is staying hydrated and fed while they play the waiting game. Hopefully tomorrow they might find a little break in the weather to fly out. In the meantime, they are keeping busy playing frisbee, bocce, and walking up and down the runway in snowshoes and skis to keep the snow packed down for the planes to land. About 20" of snow has fallen since they have been in Base Camp and it is forecasted that another foot may come tomorrow. They hope they next time they call will be from Talkeetna.
