Mark Tucker from Everest Base Camp. We hiked most of the day under fabulous conditions and arrived for lunch by our favorite cook, Kumar.  Lots to see here at Base Camp, we did some exploring.  Dinner went well, Kumar cooked us a cake.  He can bake us a cake because he actually has a small oven up here.  Very comfortable, I’m so spoiled.  Pretty white on the ground at this point.  Hopefully it’s just an evening flurry and we’ll wake up to some blue skies.  We have a good hike tomorrow.  We’re going to head back down to Pheriche.  That is our target for our hike.  All is well up here at Base Camp.

Way to go Bill.  Congratulation to all that took on the task, trained, and kept the faith to go for it.  You are all very special!  Here’s to celebratory cake!

Congratulations on making it to Base Camp.  Wish I could have a piece of Kumar’s cake.  I just checked your spot tracker and I don’t see Pheriche…I guess I will have to look at your earlier posts.  I hope everyone is feeling better.
