Elevation: 14,000'

Hey Mark Tucker checking in from Pheriche down here in the lowlands of 14,000’. Well the team got up and had a nice breakfast in beautiful, beautiful weather. We said good-bye to the crew at Base Camp. It was really fun sharing the expedition experience with these guys.  We had a really good time and were well taken care of. We were sad to leave Jeff Martin, our Operations Manager, all alone up there, but he’s going to be fine. We had a big day today though. Went through Gorak Shep and Lobuche so it was quite a trek for the team. They all did well and the mountain at the last bit threw at us a pretty good snow squall. And for this group of Floridians, the preparation and our great training over the last couple of weeks here, we survived. It was not that bad but it was a fun experience and boy we’re going to share these stories. Whatever they say, I’ll agree with them. Those numbers change when they get back home but I will verify it. So we’re all doing well. The other RMI team, the climbing team, is here as well. It’s been great to rub shoulders with them and these guys are getting to know them as well. So we are all hanging tough. More downhill and up tomorrow, where we’ll end up in Namche Bazaar. Thank you for following.
