Back to base camp

| June 9, 2009

Looks like they made it safe and sound!    Just got a “spot” that they are down back at base camp.    My guess is that they took down their camp on the top of Mt. Crosson and made it back down to their main base camp today.  Can’t wait to see the pics and hear about their time out there.   What a great accomplishment for the entire team and assuming Andrew skied down (and how else would he descend?), he is the only person to have skied Denali (the father), Sultana/Foraker (the mother) and Hunter (the child)!   Pretty cool.

    Some Scotch drinking will be in store. I might even wait till they are back or I’m not on the clock! A bottle of 15 Balvine sounds about right!!
