Success on the Shackleton Crossing

The team completed their Crossing of South Georgia Island yesterday! Early yesterday afternoon the team was picked up by zodiac and rendezvoused with the rest of their shipmates at Fortuna bay where the Plancius was waiting for them.

From there they sailed on to the town of Grytviken, the final resting place of both Ernest Shackleton himself and his right hand man, Frank Wild. 

Underneath the stunning starlight, our team reveled in their accomplishment of the last four days. They were tested day after day by wind, rain, and treacherous snow/ice conditions but they endured. "Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all." -Ernest Shackleton

You can hear the pride and happiness in John Reamer's voice in the most recent audio update.
