Ready for the Summit of Mount Vinson

We moved up today under heavy loads from Low to High Camp. Weather is great, and we’re looking forward to our summit bit tomorrow morning on Mount Vinson.

With luck, I’ll be able to unfurl one of the original flags from the 1966 expedition on the summit. It is the Alaskan flag brought up by Bill Long in 1966, and on loan to me from the American Mountaineering Museum (http://www.mountaineeringmuseum.org). The 1966-67 expedition was outfitted by Eddie Bauer – it’s great to be back under the same flag!
