Drum roll please... Summit!!!

Hello friends... I just received a very choppy sat phone call from Chuck. They all summited yesterday in perfect weather. I am raising my glass of wine as we speak. They spent last night at high camp and are at 14,000 right now. They will leave at midnight tonight to descend to base camp. They hope to get a flight off the glacier and be in Talkeetna tomorrow sometime where I am sure they will enjoy a well deserved and long awaited burger and beer.

Cheers!
Kerry

Congratulations Kari and crew! Not only a beer and a burger, but a well deserved shower. After 3 weeks on a mountain without a bath, they are probably tired of smelling each other :)
