Adversity. It’s what high altitude climbing is all about. And here we are, sitting on a rest day at 18,000 feet in a snowstorm. It was predicted and we are actually glad. Because today is supposed to be the last day of adverse weather. Tomorrow is forecasted to be nice and as a matter of fact, the next four to five days. The team is feeling great so in the meantime, Katrina and I have 36 quesadillas to make.

Dear, Ken McKenna/Dad.
We have a five day weekend from school because of the holiday.  So, we’re having a McKenna PJ Day Marathon.  Day 2 is going well!  It looks like you’re having a PJ Day, too.  Miss you a lot and hope you are having fun.
Love, Aidan
