Elevation: 21,000'

After making great progress on their descent, RMI Guides Dave Hahn & Melissa Arnot and team are safely at Camp 2!  It was a long day but sleep will be so nice with the thick air of 21,000’.

I will continue to send updates as the team makes their way back to Everest Basecamp.

Hooray!! # 14!!!  We’re so glad for you Dave and look forward to that celebratory MARGUERITA upon return.  Its hot , dry, and beautiful in Taos; but we’ve followed you once again on the RMI Blogs and cannot quite believe the number of climbers you have to contend with!!  But then you usually wait it out until almost the end of your permit, and are thus successful—we’re so proud of you!!!

Congratulations Dave, Melissa and Team.  Dave, please do not ever act your age.  You are an inspiration to all of us.
