After a little delay, the team has made it into basecamp! The trip starts with a 45 minute flight in a ski plane into the middle of the Alaska Range, so as you might imagine, the weather can sometimes be a problem. Their patience paid off and they are settled in to basecamp tonight on the SouthEast fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. They set up tents, organized gear, and made a big dinner before crawling into the tents.
Sounds like they are having a great time up there! Click the link to listen to the audio dispatch via sat phone from the glacier tonight.
