December 3, 2006 – Waiting at Vinson Base

This is Leila Silveira reporting from BAI office with an update on our Vinson team. Wally and Larry have just made it back to Vinson base camp. They took advantage during a break in the weather and succeeded climbing down all the way to base camp where Wayne was waiting for them with a welcome camp site.

I have been in touch with Antarctic logistic at Patriot Hills and they have informed me that the weather is still unstable for the Twin-Otter planes to go to pick them . They expect that it could take a couple of days until they will be flying over, the planes are already loaded and the pilots are standing by waiting for any change of weather.

We will keep you informed as soon as we have some news regarding their flights back to Patriot Hills and Punta Arenas.
