  Hello, Seven Peaks! Says Vinson's base camp, Vladimir Kotlyar and Artem Rostovtsev. We flew out of Punta Arenas this morning and flew to Union Gletcher for lunch. The weather was so perfect that we did not want to be detained and quickly "kicked out" to Vinson's base camp. In general, we stuffed our bales with food, filled our thermos with hot tea and flew to the base camp of Massiva Vinson by two planes. We have been here for two or three hours already.
By the current moment we have a headquarters tent, it's a dining room-kitchen, all the tents are installed. In general, life is adjusted ... Literally in about 10 minutes we will eat food .. Pelmeni! We took frozen ravioli with us. We decided to experiment and ...
took a little of their food ...
In short, today we took dumplings for the first day.
In general, everything is fine here, we are in the base camp of Vinson. Tomorrow at 10-11 we plan to go higher, to Camp Low Camp. Hello! All, bye!

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Punta Arenas:

 

Hello, 7 Summits, from Chile! Our first Vinson team finally gathered in Punta Arenas last night. The team turned out to be very international, from 6 countries: Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Azerbaijan, Canada and Nepal. We conducted the first acclimatization (to the time zone) joint dinner, planned the next day. The brightest people outlined the morning running along the Strait of Magellan. Those who flew a little earlier, were lucky to participate in the preparation of the expedition - we have already prepared 200-250 public goods of equipment and food for a trip with us to Antarctica.

 

For today, the plan is to see penguins, decided to immediately reduce risks of not meet them. After all, when you return home, you will be asked if you saw or not penguins? And in Antarctica we will be deep in the continent and away from these birds, we will solve the issue with penguins today. Tomorrow we are already setting up the equipment for dispatch and are preparing to take off for the white continent.

 

Greetings from the friendly international team from the far south!
