Vinson Massif:  Team #2 Arrives Punta Arenas

Our second RMI Vinson Expedition is officially underway! The team all arrived this afternoon in Punta Arenas. Despite the long miles travelled in crowded planes, immigration lines, and the scrutiny of the custom’s agents, everyone made it with their luggage.
After a quick check-in at our hotel, we immediately headed off to dinner at the very popular La Marmita, where we dined on some of the best fresh and local food around. The restaurant was packed as usual, but we got right in and had a great meal.
It’s almost 11:00 pm now, and still light outside. The weather has been cold, rainy and windy in town the last few days, but that won’t really affect our plans as we will be spending the majority of time finalizing our preparations for our flight to Union Glacier. But now we have to do is relax and focus on getting a good night’s sleep.
We’ll check in tomorrow with our next update.
Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin
