Mt. Everest: Teams Watch the Weather

Well, the summit buzz is starting here at Everest Base Camp.  A few teams had planned on heading up this morning but a pulse of snow in the early morning hours shut most of them down.  Everyone has been milling about camp trying to piece together what the other teams are doing.  It’s all pretty exciting.

The main focus for everyone is on the weather forecast.  There is a tropical cyclone in the Bay of Bengal and that could mean a lot of snow if it comes our way.  Everyone is hoping that it dissipates over the next several days of course.

As for us we’re not rushing up the mountain just yet.  We’re still healing up a bit and being in the first big wave if summiteers was never in our plan.  Better for us to hang back a few days, wait for a solid forecast and hopefully get the summit without a big crowd.

So its at least a few more days of Base Camp life for us.

Hey Dan, nice beard.  Brenda & I hope your feeling strong.  Sounds like your getting close.  All the luck brah.  Paul and I are going to open your pool on Saturday so when you get home you can fall right in.

Seth - who is responsible to make these calls? Is this a group decision or the leader?
