Elevation: 17,575'

Hello from Everest Base Camp,
We have been enjoying some warm sunny days relaxing at Base Camp with Dave and Linden after their return from the summit.  We were joined in Base Camp by RMI Guide Melissa Arnot and her climbing partner Dave Morton.  For the past two months, while our team was at Everest Base Camp acclimatizing and preparing for our Everest summit bid,  Melissa and Dave were doing the same for an ascent of Makalu.  They are now resting at Everest Base Camp in preparation of a summit bid on Mt. Everest.  The weather looks good and they plan to leave Base Camp in a few days. 

Dave and Linden will also be departing soon.  Making their way down valley to Lukla, flying to Kathmandu and spending a night or two before boarding flights for home.  Everest Base Camp is getting pretty quite but there are still a few teams here. 

We will keep you posted. 

RMI Guide Mark Tucker



all the best to you up there! go get em melissa!!!! be safe! :-) amy
