Mt. Everest:  The Team Resting at Camp 2

The RMI Everest Expedition is on track!  Three super Sherpa went from Base Camp to Camp 2.  En route they stopped at Camp 1 to offer some help to the team and carried the radio and electrical equipment up to Camp 2.  After arriving at Camp 2, they put the puzzle together and bingo, loud and clear communication between Basecamp and Camp 2.  A few days ago they carried a couple of community loads of climbing gear, and a strong team of upper mountain route workers placed anchors and rope up the Lhotse Face.  With the team now nesting at Camp 2 and feeling good, it makes for another great day here on Mount Everest.  It did snow a couple of inches last night, but a beautiful day with just enough wind to whip the loose snow around making for wild views.  A little maintenance on the floors of the dining and communication tents today is routine when living on a moving glacier.
