We have everything loaded on the Ilyusian 76TD and the weather lookds good. The team is excited to hit the ice and start the expedition. The boys went for a run a long the coast for an hour and a half while I weighed and loaded the plane. We are all packed and ready! We kissed the statue a Magellan (Which will give us safe passage and return us safely to Punta). We are going to dinner tonight at the Jose Nogeuro Where Shackleton stayed for the year while he waited for money to buy a ship while his 22 men were shipwrecked on Elephant Island, Antarctica. Please read Endurance by Alfred Lansing. Will update you when we hit the ice.
