Hey RMI, this is Linden Mallory calling from Chukung in the Imja Khola Valley, it’s a side valley off of the main Khumbu Valley.  In the last days before Island Peak, part of the group headed off back down to Namche today and four of us are headed up towards Island Peak.  We’ll be heading into Base Camp tomorrow to begin the climb.  Everybody is doing well; the weather has been nice so far and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it stays that way.  We’ll check in with you again at Base Camp.  Take care.

We are anxious to hear how things are going.  So you summit Saturday, which means Friday night Nepal, which means Friday day EST.  I’m confused and I’m at sea level.

Keep the Sat phone updates coming Linden
