Hello Mark Tucker checking in from high in the Himalaya. I am outside of our tea house and it is quite the bright moon. Had some clouds roll in later in the day…  It’s pretty windy.  Had great views of Everest and Nuptse.  We are all tucked in with the hot water bottles and looking forward to a good night’s rest. Part of the team made a little side venture over to get blessed by one of the holy Lamas of the valley.  And they had an awesome time.  So we are feeling very fortunate that he was available for that.  And, we’re looking good.  We’ll check in tomorrow.

L &  P-  Yea For making it to Pheriche!!  Its interesting that Mark writes of the moon - iwe have seen the moon for the past 3 nights and tonight, also.  When you look at the moon, know that we are too and are with you….Go!!!  Grab it all!  D’s quote this evening was, “those kids are so lucky! They are doing something that the rest of us just dream of…!!”  Live the dream, Guys.
