Lead Guide Tad McCrea called in last night (5/22) from Talkeetna, Alaska.
The second half of Team 1, aka "the Kobler machine," finally made it back to Talkeetna. Unfortunately Team 1 had some satellite phone malfunctions and were unable to report in once they reached Base Camp on Wednesday night (5/18). Team 1 had a party at the runway, celebrating their successful climb with some music and drinks.
The first half of Team 1 (6 people) was able to fly off the mountain on Thursday afternoon (5/19) and the second half of Team 1 flew off the mountain late Saturday night (5/21).
Team 1 was overall an extremely fun crew to work with and was very strong, which showed on all fronts. AAI guides had a great time and really enjoyed working with this group!
