From the base on Mount Vinson, expedition leader Garrett Madison provides this update via satellite phone:

Hello!  This is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering / Adventure Guides Vinson Expedition.  Today is Friday, December 28th.  We are at base camp.  We had a carry today.  We went up half way to camp 1 and deposited a load of equipment, food, and fuel and other items in a cache.  Now we are back at base camp, just having dinner.

 

It looks like good weather so we are planning to move up to camp 1 tomorrow.  So we are excited to be moving up the hill!  Everyone is doing well here on Mount Vinson and we’ll check in soon.  Thanks!
