And they're off!

The team is on its way to Antarctica! After months of planning and endless hours thinking about the start of the expedition, the time has finally come. A scheduled departure time of 9 pm was suddenly pushed back to 2 pm, causing a bit of a rush to get ready for the Antarctic flight. The flight to Union Glacier basecamp is approximately 4.5 hours. They arrived by the evening and had a nice dinner at the basecamp before catching some rest. They plan to do some training before getting dropped off at Hercules Inlet.

Make sure to listen to the audio update from Dennis!
