Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Arrive at Island Peak Base Camp

Mark Tucker here calling here from Island Peak Base Camp. We had a 3-hour hike up from Chukung to a nice lunch. Beautiful day. Nice and warm until the sun set and now a little bit of clouds and wind. Came out to a little ridge here to get a better signal. I’m in three layers, heavy down and it is chilly. I guess it could be worse. We’ve had a great day so far. Everybody’s doing well. We have a fabulous staff assisting us so overall, as a mountaineer goes, we’ve got it pretty easy. It is still a tough environment to handle. We are all doing well. We are all looking forward to a late start tomorrow up to our high camp. Beautiful, beautiful day. Peaks surrounding us, just awesome to stare at. Had a nice dinner and it is into the sleeping bag with my favorite water bottle to get me through the night. All’s well.
