Yesterday concluded the 2013 supply drop. Thank goodness, because the temperature dropped and we awoke to 4 inches of snow. It was a blustery day under the helicopter with the high of only 30º. Last night's low was -1º. It is not warming up at all. If you have plans to hike this weekend, be prepared for snow and extremely cold conditions.
Now that we have our supplies, it is time to clean, clean, clean. I will post a picture of the t-shirt design as soon as I get to the boxes.
The helicopter taking four gas tanks down to the staging area to be refilled with propane. When they are full, the helicopter can only bring back two at a time.
