A day at Union Glacier

After a very smooth flight from Punta Arenas the team touched down at Union Glacier's ice runway last night, and spent their first night on the continent of Antarctica. Dennis reported clear, beautiful weather, and this held through today, with an temperature of around -15C.

The team spent the day organizing their gear and resupplies and doing some pulling of their sleds. Everyone was quite pleased with the way they felt. They plan to do a full-day ski tomorrow complete with setting up camp and cooking meals with their stoves, as a shakedown.

Make sure to listen to Lisa's audio report below, and check back again tomorrow for more info from the team!
