Greetings from Talkeetna AK! 

Our team made it in last night/early this morning with all gear accounted for and we enjoyed a good night’s rest in Talkeetna. This morning it was business as usual, big breakfasts at the Roadhouse, a NPS orientation and a lot of sorting gear in the K2 hangar. Now we are checking tents, stoves and group gear before a big feast tonight. With any luck we will fly out tomorrow morning.

Til then,

Wow-  thats impressive progress.  Also - potluck?  I thought this was supposed to be hard!  You should be relaying stories of extreme hardship and grit!
You guys are awesome. 
All the best.

K - Uma came back Malaysia and we had a hurricane at home…till the home was in order and to her spec. :-)
