Karl & Terry are well in Antarctica. They are based in Patriot Hills and are awaiting the other two on the team. Problem is, they are stuck at Mt Vinson!
Last Saturday they were 12 hours away from the summit when the mountain was hit very strong winds. That has grounded them at the highest camp. The wind is so far relentless and a summit push seems still a day or two away.
That means that K&T have leisure days in Antarctica. The good thing is that they have lots of time to acclimatise and ski and walk to get up to speed.
Another thin is that just being there is wonderful. Lots of other expedition folks are there and in the mess tent, where everybody eat and meet, is Mecca for all of us.
We’ll be back with more from them as soon as it gets in.View 2 comments
