Basecamp Life

Hello everyone,

The team continues to rest here in our comforts of Basecamp. We have been spending lots of time reading, watching movies, doing laundry, taking showers, and playing cards. In fact, we hosted the first Texas Hold ‘em tournament last night. There were some of us who were lucky and a few of them that were not so lucky! (Thanks for the tip Kenny Rogers)

Today we spent most of the morning relaxing and getting a few things ready to be carried up the mountain by our amazing Sherpa crew. I would have to say that the majority of these great guys are smaller in stature than us, but easily twice as strong. It really is humbling to see the Sherpa working with such ease at these altitudes. After another great lunch provided by our head cook Kumar, we pulled out our oxygen mask and had a little practice with the oxygen bottles. We all looked like fighter pilots (well almost) and seemed like everyone said at one point “Luke I am your father”. Just a few more rest days and then it’s back to work. Everyone is looking forward to heading back uphill and for some warmer weather to arrive also.
