Vinson Massif: The Team Enjoys a Rest Day

We rolled out of the tents at 11:30 AM to find another perfect day.  Calm, sunny and clear, just the way we like things.  This was our well-earned rest day and we took full advantage.  A leisurely breakfast primed the team for a mid-day nap, which was followed by the mid-afternoon nap and the early evening nap.  The goal of it all was to prepare for a few tough days to come up high on the mountain.  Everybody did their best to catch up on hydration and calories.  Billy Nugent and Seth Waterfall rested by spinning on down to basecamp and returning with fuel and other supplies in a tight five hour round trip.  Thanksgiving dinner was held under our festive blue and white POSH tent.  Chicken and noodles with all the trimmings.  We’ll be even more thankful if this fine weather continues.

Best regards to all back at home.
