Tomorrow is the big day
Tomorrow December 11, 2010 Dan, Adam and Laura will fly from Toronto to Punta Arenas in Chile. It is a 17 hour overnight flight with two stop overs - one in New York and one in Santiago Chile. The flight will be exhausting. They then have 4 days in Punta Arenas to recheck all their gear and check in with the outfitter. The outfitter has been very specific about what they have to bring on the climb. Luckily they had most of their gear already from the Everest climb. Every mountain has been a different challenge so we will have to see what challenge lies ahead for them on Mt Vinson. Thankfully everyone likes winter.
