Hey Mark Tucker at Everest Base Camp, checking in.  Woke up to clear blue, not a cloud in the sky. Here in the early evening, we’ve got a little light snow- not unusual. The team is doing well. We had a very productive day: some showers, lots of writing, reading… I don’t know about arithmetic, lots of photos, and a venture into the Icefall. We are sharing our camp with Jeff Martin, the RMI Operations Manager. It’s a pleasure he is setting everything up for the team that’s coming in. Actually the bags that went straight from Kathmandu to Base Camp just arrived for the climbing team. I’m sure they are posting on the website. But their gear is all here and that is always a nice thing. A little bit chilly, as you can imagine. My hands are freezing on this phone but we are going to duck into the dining tent where we will have another three to five course meal and have a little heater in there. Play a little bit of cards and relax and we are already gearing up for tomorrow. Our descent will begin back back towards Lukla. So we are keeping that fresh in our mind. Everybody is doing well and thanks for following. We’ll talk later.
