Vinson Massif: Hanging Out at Basecamp

Not so much to report today besides a good brunch and a fine dinner.  Thick fog and cloud blanketed Vinson basecamp for much of the day.  This made things predictably cool outside the tents and it was difficult to walk anywhere without feeling a touch of vertigo in the all-encompassing white-out.  No news about the availability of aircraft either.  Obviously not an urgent matter with the clouds glued into the Branscomb Glacier.  Still, Vlado, TA, Mindy and I all enjoyed the day and will always remember where we were for the South Pole centennial.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
