Mayo Team Reaches Base Camp


We have received a brief satellite phone call from Joel Streed. Five of the nine members in the Mayo trekking team has reached base camp. The other four will follow, arriving tomorrow. They arrived in the late afternoon, had dinner and turned in for a good night's sleep. Tomorrow they will set up the lab and begin doing science. There's a little snow and Joel says it feels about zero degrees.
