Vinson:  Ed Viesturs and team waiting at Union Glacier

After the climb David, Cindy, Ben and I said goodbye to our climbing teammates and boarded the Twin Otter at Vinson Basecamp.  We flew to Union Glacier, the hub of ALE’s antarctic expeditions, we had only spent a few hours here on our way into Vinson Basecamp due to the great flying weather.  Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case on our return.  The weather is good for flying but a strike in Punta Arenas, Chile, our next destination, is preventing the Ilyushin jet from making it’s way to pick us up.  We aren’t alone.. several teams are sitting in Punta Arenas waiting to start their Antarctic adventures and just as many teams are here waiting to return. 
Hopefully we will be in the air soon.
