This is Dave Hahn calling from Antarctica our Vinson season ended today.  About midday, around 11 AM, we flew from Vinson Basecamp back to Union Glacier.  Today was a beautiful day out there, big blue sky all around, the clouds were gone and we had good flying conditions back to Union Glacier.  The Illyusion came in this evening and my climbers should be getting to Punta Arenas right about now. I’m still in Antarctica; I am going to stay on for one more project down here to the South Pole.  T.A, Mindy and Vlado should be enjoying Punta Arenas tonight.  A successful trip all around.
