It's now 1pm local Punta Arenas time, and we have been given the go ahead: We should be flying by 5pm!
I had this typed out, but now it's 1 30pm and this has just happened:
I have just had another call to say the pilot has decided that they are not flying due to fog that is just moved in on the Antarctica coast near Union Glacier. We won't be flying at all today... so it looks like last night was a karaoke rehearsal and tonight maybe the main show!
This is a bit frustrating and does feel like a bit of a rollercoaster ride..... probably nothing like the ice road ahead, but still quite challenging!
In the mean time I'll try my best to keep you entertained as you also wait for the main show on the ice! I hope to publish my views on Solo adventuring and why its so special for me. Just in case you take a break, I'll make sure an email goes out to all of you a day before I start skiing..... I just hope that is still in 2011!!
Bye for now,
