Waiting for the start

You probably know by now that traveling to and in Antarctica is not easy. It's all about weather and the white continent is not known for having good weather. We were very busy the past two days, preparing our sleds for the first leg of the journey and the caches along the way. Everything is in place and we were ready to fly to Hercules inlet to start. In fact there were a window to fly today. However there a bad weather system coming in on Sunday and peaks throughout Monday. We decided that it is best to wait out the weather at union glacier camp rather than in the tent. According to the forecast the next flying window is Tuesday afternoon. Until then I'm trying to put up even more weight. Good thing is food at UG camp is amazingly delicious and plenty.Photo shows dining/socialize tent at UG. Its definitely much bigger than the one in Patriot Hills last time i was there. Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.
