Team Mallory Arrives in Punta Arenas, Chile

Wow! We left Toronto airport Saturday, December 11 and had a short stop over in New York city, and Santiago, Chile. We finally arrived at Punta Arenas, Chile, Sunday at about 2:30 pm. A long flight! Punta Arena is one of the most southerly cities in the world and the jumping off point for us to Antarctica in a few days. The weather is mostly clear but quite windy. Calling for 68 kph winds tomorrow.

Laura's bag with all her climbing gear did not arrive and we are hoping that it will be sent on the next flight from Santiago Chile.

We will spend the next few days repacking, reviewing for essential gear only, coordinating plans with our outfitter and waiting for our planned departure in a few days.
