Everest Base Camp Trek & Island Peak Climb: Tucker & Team Fired Up for Summit Bid

Mark Tucker here at high camp of Island Peak. Hands are freezing but the rest of me is pretty good.  We are situated a couple hundred feet below 18,000 feet.  We got a bit to go but we’re in good shape.  Have the tents up.  Actually have a small kitchen tent where our Nepali staff is making us some fresh momos.  He has a rolling pin out, had the flour going, cooking up the vegetables.  We’re roughing it but its still reasonably comfortable.  Having aghast. We’ve got peaks above, ice, rock every where.  Ocean below, giant peaks peaking out of the clouds, and yes, a bit chilly.  I’m sure we’re going to be in for it tonight when it comes to the cold but lots of layers and keep moving should do the trick.  So we’re planning to start looking at the weather at 1 am, hopefully moving by 2ish and route sounds like it’s in pretty good shape.  So if things go right, we’re going to get on top of this thing and make a call to y’all.  We’re going to error on the side of smart and conservative, not push too hard, but give it a gosh darn good effort..  So we’re looking forward to it, all fired up and can’t wait to report in again.
