Hey, this is Dave Hahn, lucky enough to be on top of the Vinson Massif, highest point in Antarctica- 16,067 ft with the entire team!  We’ve got Larry Seaton. We’ve got Fatima Williamson. We’ve got Bill and Sara McGahan. So all of us are up here. We we can’t believe our luck. We’ve got perfect conditions. No wind.  I’m going to give you a yell either by voice dispatch or a written dispatch when we get back to camp to let you know we are safe. But right now everything is going extremely well. Everybody’s feeling good. Everybody’s very happy. All for now. Thank you.

Congratulations to the team! I’m very very happy you all made it and in perfect conditions too! You must all be very pleased and extremely tired so make it back down safe.
Big kiss to Fatima!
