Hello everyone, this is J.J. Justman with the Mt. Elbrus Northside team.  We are happily at high camp, getting our tents up. Seth and I have our kitchen set up and we’re making water and hots for the team. It is is a beautiful day!  Again, guides are a little superstitious bunch so I’m gonna knock on wood, and cross my fingers and toes, but we just have a marvelous day moving up here to high camp at 15,300’. We’re just gonna settle in, relax, make a bunch of hots, some soup, a little bit of dinner, drink a little more water and then we’re gonna get ready for a summit attempt tomorrow. So wish us luck, wish us good weather here on Mount Elbrus for tomorrow and hopefully will be calling you from the top with some good news. Thanks for following along and we will talk with you again soon, bye.
