Vinson Massif: Hahn & Team Enjoy Windless Night, but No Flight

On the good side, it wasn’t windy last night.  The tents were quiet and we got good rest.  On the bad side -from a flying perspective- nothing else changed.  It was still snowing and the clouds were still sitting right down on top of us this morning… and throughout the day.  Nobody went flying.  So the folks in Punta Arenas who were hoping to get in stayed put.  The people at the South Pole wanting to get back to Union didn’t.  The gang out at Vinson ready to go home sat at Base Camp.  The peeps at Union wanting to head to Vinson had to wait.  Those that wanted to go to the Pole did not.  And the five of us intent on escaping Antarctica never had a chance today.  So we took it easy, went for walks and lectures and books.  Ate meals and took naps and read forecasts of more poor weather. 
Basically, we hung in there.

Best Regards
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
