Passing the Time at Bascamp

Hello again everyone,

Things are still going well here at Base Camp. After breakfast most of the climbers went on a hike to keep the blood flowing. We have had enough rest to get us ready for our summit push, now all we have to do is wait for the right weather pattern to show up. Still looks like it will be a few more days though. It’s ironic that one of the hardest parts to climbing big mountains is figuring out how to stay relaxed while you wait. If the forecast holds the group should be headed uphill in a week or less.

In the meantime we’ll try to keep ourselves busy with the usual, card games, movies, horseshoes, and laying around in our tents.

Keep your fingers crossed for us.
