Hi, this is Billy checking in. We are back in camp safe and sound from our successful summit bid. We got 100% of our team to the summit of Mount McKinley today, aka Denali. We are back in camp. Everyone’s hanging out, rehydrating, eating some delicious freeze-dried meals, and hopefully going to get a great night’s sleep before we gear up to head down and head home. And that’s all for now. We’ll check in again as our descent continues.
