Mt. Everest Expedition: Team Climbed Toward Camp 2

Elevation: 20,000'

All is well upstairs.  Word from above is that it was a bit windy last night, some of dream land not available due to tent noise.  That nylon fabric does a great job protecting from the elements but even the slightest of breeze makes a pretty good noise.  Equipped with ear plugs and a down bag around the ears is still no match if a good size blow is upon you.

The team climbed up toward Camp 2 this morning and is now back at Camp 1 resting and having lunch.  Two of our Sherpa team have gone to Camp 2 and will stay for the next few days setting up that camp.  Full speed ahead here at Mount Everest with all teams very active.

Till next time,

Happy (actual) Birthday, Bill! Talk about reaching for the heights! Sending lots of good birthday wishes to you. Sara, I read one of the comments that said even on Mt. Everest, you look SO good! You really do. I know you’re working very hard and our thoughts and prayers are with you 24/7. Much love.
