Mark Tucker here calling from Island Peak Basecamp. Had a wonderful stay at the resort in Chukung.  Great evening, kind fellowship with other climbers from around the world. The hike up here took about 3 hours, and did very well and greeted by a staff that we’ve had in place.  They’ve been here for few days, great dining and kitchen area, wonderful food, tents already set up. What a lap of luxury we walked right into.  We did a couple hikes today to keep the blood flowing.  The team is doing very well.  Planning tomorrow to finalize details, get some gear sorted, and then we’re gonna ship up to High Camp and get ourselves ready for the summit push tomorrow in the late evening.  So the deal is on, we’re doing great, and we’ll talk to you later.

Sounds like everything is going well so far on your Island Peak climb. It’s so nice to get your updates, Mark! I know my Dad is in good hands! Good luck and stay strong. Looking forward to having my Dad safely back down to sea level! We’re thinking of you both all the time. Be safe!
