We just received a call via satellite phone from Lonnie. His spirits remain high as he progresses up the Kahiltna Glacier. He encountered crevasses, but his skis worked well spanning them and/or maneuvered around them.

Lonnie said outside of sore feet from traveling he’s feeling great. He mentioned that the surface travel weather is good over the glacier.

According to forecast, the weather will remain stable over next few days or so. He will be phoning in sometime around 7:30pm Alaska time tomorrow. We’ll post news as soon as we receive it.

He’s now enjoying some lasagna inside his snow cave and wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and to all a good night…
