Lead Guide Conan Bliss provides this team two initial status report from Vinson Base Camp:
Hello this is Conan calling in for Vinson Madison Mountaineering (team) two! We arrived safely at Vinson Base Camp and had a great pasta and salmon dinner. Everybody is healthy and happy and the weather is splendid! Tomorrow we are planning to do a carry half-way to camp one and then returning to base camp. We will check in with you tomorrow.
