Hey everyone this is JJ Justman with RMI. We did a carry to Camp 2 at 18,000’. The team is doing great. But more importantly, I think all of our friends and loved ones would like to hear from us on Christmas, so I will start with my wishes. (Click on audio to hear from the team.)

Cindee….Merry Christmas Cindee!!! Better late then never. It took me a little while to figure this blog thing out(I guess your niece is right). Thank you for my gifts. I love them bunches. I was not expecting the one thing. That would have been enough. Wishing you and your team a Happy New year and a safe trip. Will talk to you when you are off the mountian. GO TEAM GO!!!!!

Merry Christmas to you and the team.  The Christmas audio was a great unexpected present.  We miss you but are so happy you are fulfilling a dream for Christmas and your birthday.  The girls gave Ambur and Drew an egg for Christmas.  When you get home you can collect your Fantasy Football League championship prize.  Rachel, John and Grandma see hi.  Climb safe.

Love, Mom & Dad

Ps. I’‘ll start reading the present you gave me.

Merry Christmas team!!!  You are almost there.  What a perfect Christmas wish to hear your voices and know you are all doing well.  To my brother, Josh.  It was heart warming to hear your voice.  We are so proud of you.  I hope you are doing well.  We spent the evening with Lily and her family.  Marlene kept saying, “a donde Josh”!!  She misses you just like we all do.  Everyone from Illinois sends their love and prayers.  Today is definitely different without you here.  We are hoping for a Christmas baby tomorrow, so we will keep you updated.  I hope you have a Merry Christmas Josh!!  We can’t wait to have you home.  Keep your head high and remember you have three special angels flying high with you.  Enjoy your day of rest.

Sending lots of love, Jess
