Here’s Conrad with the final dispatch for the second of our two successful Mount Vinson expeditions for 2019/2020:
Greetings folks, this is Conrad Anker with the final dispatch from Vinson 2020 with Madison Mountaineering. It’s a beautiful sunny day here at Vinson base camp and all the team is safely back at Union Glacier camp. They are awaiting the Ilyushin to fly home.
We’ve had a successful expedition. It wasn’t the best of weather, but, as we well know, the strictest teachers are the best teachers. So, we all came away with knowledge, experience, and newfound friends.
Thanks for listening in. Stay tuned. Talk to you soon. Bye!
