Mt. Everest: Making Final Preparations for Summit Bid

Elevation: 17,575'

We enjoyed another sunny day at Base Camp and thus a few more rounds of horseshoes.  Our team is getting rested and well fed - two important “to do” items prior to starting our big push for the summit of Mt. Everest.  The team has been finalizing their equipment, deciding on the food items they will take, adjusting their boots, etc. etc.  There are more teams on the upper mountain getting in position for their summit attempt.  We are expecting some teams will make the summit tonight.  It is always hard to be an observer but we are banking with the old saying “good things come to those who wait”.

I guess that goes for you too, since you will have to wait for our next dispatch. ..
