Mt. Everest Expedition: It’s Go Time!

Elevation: 17,575'

Things are looking good for the team.  The wait should prove itself worth it, the weather window and the overall health of the team is like having the pole position at the Indy 500.  An early breakfast, and six plus hours of climbing should put the team at Camp 2 tomorrow.

We enjoyed a great pizza dinner send off tonight. Some last minute packing, and early to bed.

Go team go!

Happy Bithday Mark.
Be safe, but hurry up and summit.  Surf is up and the Black Ball is coming.  Are you in for Father’s Day Golf?

Be safe there. We all follow your each step.

Success is going home, not yet reach the summit.
