They are heading to the airport and flying to Antarctica in the next couple of hours! They’ve been waiting patiently, and are excited to be on their way. It typically takes a couple of hours to get everyone to the airport, and it is a 4 1/2 hour flight to the airstrip at the Union Glacier, so they should be there in time for dinner tonight. We expect a call via satellite phone when they get to the glacier so we’ll post an update this evening if we get it.
Here’s the crew in the lobby of the hotel, dressed and ready to fly to Antarctica!
