Elevation: 12,000'

Well we are moving right along. Team is doing well after a couple of trams and a chair lift. Here we are at 12000’, the Garabashi luxury dorm-type living. We are sticking with the normal program that has worked so well in the past. We did a nice three-hour hike, acclimatization is going well. Was under nice weather. We are just resting, hydrating, and nesting in our lovely barrel. We’re waiting our turn in the dining area. There’s a few other groups that are sharing our support crew up here and we’re all getting along just fine. Although there is just one guy up here. I think he goes by JJ.  You know there always has to be one of those in the bunch. So psyched the team is doing well. Should be another good night to catch up a little more on that jet lag.
