Big Bear, Ca, December 21, 2011, 4:00pm – Team Jordan landed in Antarctica a few days ago, and has been preparing for the climb to Mount Vinson Massif at base camp. High winds have delayed the team from moving forward for the past few days, however the team was able to get the green light yesterday and move forward to what is called the Low Camp. Team Jordan called the studios of KBHR, and stated that they were ok, in good spirits, and that they hope to reach the summit on Christmas Day. Currently temperatures in Antarctica are around –20 degrees, which for the coldest continent on earth are considered warm temperatures during their summer season. There are other teams that will be making the trek to the summit with Team Jordan, along with experienced Antarctica guides.
