Elevation: 14,000'

Hey, it’s Billy here checking in from 14,000’.  Our team had a lazy morning today and packed up and moved down from the 17 Camp to the 14 Camp on Mt. McKinley.  We had some pretty slow going due to some wind and some kind of funky weather but especially due to very deep snow conditions, lots and lots of snow from the previous storm cycle that kept us at 17.
We are going to walk out of here early tomorrow morning, very early and head for the air strip.  So hopefully the next check in will come from the Kahiltna landing strip.

That’s all for now.
