Mt. Everest:  Preparations Underway for Last Rotation

Cinco de Mayo and we are here with some nachos.  No Margaritas, that will be later.  Perfect weather, another beautiful day.  Lots of prep work for the upcoming rotation.  We took out the oxygen masks and regulators.  They may use them if a night at Camp 3 becomes available.  So important to double check the equipment before sending it up the hill.  Our whole Sherpa team will start out early in the AM for Camp 2 and stay up there until Camp 3 is built and loads are in place at Camp 4.  The Sherpa team is such a great group of men, we cannot thank them enough for all their help.

The climbing team will rest one more day, then head up for the final rotation before the summit push.  Dave and Seth have been doing fine work of all the details, what a couple of super guides we have leading this Expedition.

A big shout out to Karla, Happy B-Day!

Hello Dave : We meet at base camp about 3 wks ago. I was on a 3wk trekking & climbing trip. It was the adventure of a life time . I had many high lights of the trip , right at the top was getting to meet you and talk a little about mountaineering. I’m thankful for the time you spent with me . Good luck on the climb with your team , be safe & may God bless you and your team !!!  Now go get #15.  Grant

If I had the wherewithal to climb Everest, it would be with David and Seth for sure.  I have no doubt they are making sure everything is squared away.  Wish I could be a fly on the wall, although I don’t think they make down jackets quite that small :). Have fun, guys.  That’s a big part of what it’s all about.

Good job guys. Hope the good weather holds out. I’ll have another margarita in your honor.

Don’t worry guys.  I’m drinking your share of the margaritas today so you won’t feel left out. :-)

Get plenty of rest.  You’ve got some serious, exhausting work ahead of you.
