Mark Tucker here at Everest Basecamp (EBC).  Home away from home.  I recently completed an Everest Basecamp Trek and Island Peak climb. Always a pleasure to share this amazing place with adventure travelers.  I had a great time.  Hope the return home for my team went smooth.  Thank you all.

Back at EBC, I am settling in.  Getting organized is always a bit of work but much appreciated as our team’s prepare for the rotations to the upper camps.  Now that the organizing is done, I opened up the local grocery store for the team. They went shopping for their food to be consumed at Camp 1 on their upcoming nights.  They plan to head full force thru the Icefall in the early AM, looking at three nights on the hill.  The team looks great, ready to get into meat of the climb. We did take time out to build the horseshoe pits and get in a couple games.  Burrito night tonight.  A favorite meal here at EBC.
