Rob called in. He's at 11,000' and his team back carried yesterday and are carrying to Windy Corner today. Greg Vernovage and Phil Ershler's teams are also at 11,000' so there's a family atmosphere going on. He reported plenty of fuel reserves at 11,000' for Leighan's expedition flying in on July 4th. AMS expeditions help each other out by caching extra food and fuel for the next team. It saves weight and provides a cushion if the weather prevents forward progress.
