Team at Vinson Base Camp

Rob just called and reported that the flight from Union Glacier to Vinson Base Camp on the Twin Otter was the "greatest airplane ride ever," and the flight over the sea of ice was "magical."  At Vinson Base they were treated to light winds, lots of sunshine, and a hamburger dinner.  Rob says the sun feels really intense and they are applying sunscreen every hour or so to protect their faces from sunburn.  Tomorrow they plan to make a 6-7 hour carry up to Camp 1. -Mark
