Quick update from the departures lounge at Punta Arenas… with an incoming weather system in Antarctica, our flight has been pushed forward a day to avoid a likely delay of several days in the event we wait.
Check-in done and got just about the coolest boarding pass ever…
Now just waiting next 45 mins or so before we board and hopefully wheels up at 4pm local. Approx 5 hour flight to Antarctica and then remains to be seen what type of weather they have and how soon we get connecting flight to Vinson Base Camp.
No internet from here on on but I will be able to do limited posting to map share and twitter (find the first on “links” page: GPS, second can be found on home page) – will provide 1-2 updates daily as we progress.
Here’s hoping for a successful trip and will be in touch!
