Thanksgiving Greetings From Vinson Team

What rest days are for. (Photo: Phil Ershler)

Mike Hamill, Chris Meder and the team called in today from C1 to wish all their friends and family a very happy Thanksgiving.

Best of all is that today’s a rest day after having made a hugely successful carry yesterday to the top of the 4000 linear feet of fixed rope and then up to high camp.  That’s huge.  Gear is in place and team is now enjoying a rest day in absolutely perfect weather.  Not a cloud in the sky.

Now they wait until the forecast and their experience and their guts tell them it’s time to move up.  Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day but they’re exactly where they should be at this point in the expedition.

All’s as good as it gets.  Happy Thanksgiving.
