Chilean Traverse Team is Leaving

I have had the pleasure to meet (and drink with) the Chilean Traverse team. About half military and half scientists, a good bunch of guys. I attended their arrival party at the South Pole which consisted of drinking too much Piscoe. They seem very happy here after a the long trek from Patriot Hills. They have been here for a week because of mechanical issues but it sounds like they are geared up and ready to go. Here is a picture of the Chileans arriving at the South Pole.

Good luck to my new Chilean friends on the second half of their journey.
