Go in!
12/10/2005, Wanaka, Mt Aspiring

Here, and gone right away. An unusal set of technical glitches are keeping me from using the Sat-phone to do dispatches, so I"m leaving it down, to many other issues at hand to deal with than to worry about that.

I'll post again after were out. Until then the weather has turned out to be majestic. Our drive down here yesterday was utterly incredible.

We fly into Bevan Col this AM, sort trudge up a glacier to the Colin Todd, get in some ice climbing, and prep for a summit attempt as early as tomorrow.

Keep the fingers crossed.

Yep, long plane ride indeed. 13 1/2 hours to be exact. That out of the way, off the plane and into this place is about all the therapy one could ever wish for. This place is green, full of foliage, sorta sunny skies, birds and really good dairy products. Men wear knee high socks, drive on the left side of the road, and maintain really friendly spirits. In a nut shell rather nice, considering when I left Colorado it was a full blown blizzard. I dodged the bullet on that flight, we de-iced 40 minutes on the tarmac before we flew to L.A. Were outa here in the AM, taking the rental out for a spin down to Wanaka, gearing up, then flying into Aspiring on Saturday. Much to do tomorrow. It's Friday here, Thursday in the states FYI. Jamie
