Vinson Team is holding tight in the wind

Jacob Schmitz called in to let us know that the team is taking a weather day at High Camp.  They had hoped to push for the top this morning, but the winds were just a bot too high and coming from a direction that would put the wind in their faces for the majority of the day.  Apparently, a few teams started up toward the summit and all but one turned back, due to the wind.  Our guys have plenty of time and are being patient, which is an important skill to employ on an expedition.
