Aili called in with a report on their first full day at Kahiltna Base Camp.  For breakfast they enjoyed some re-heated cinnamon rolls from the Roadhouse Bakery in Talkeetna. Team 3 used the afternoon to review skills such as knots they will be using to tie into their ropes and how to pull a sled.  They took a walk to the radio control tower, saw some pretty big crevasses, and came back for lunch and a rest.  They plan to move up to Camp one on Tuesday.
