Mt. Everest: Mark Tucker Checks in

Posted by: JJ Justman, Billy Nugent, Dave Hahn, Mark Tucker | April 21, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Everest
Elevation: 17,575'

The skies were sunny with warm temperatures today at Everest Base Camp.  Our climbers took a few short hikes around the lower glacier and then a bit of cards and board games to keep our minds busy.  There is community gathering for a remembrance scheduled for tomorrow.

Nicole Lobiondo: Hope you are okay during this tough time. My Dad and I took our Walk in Long Branch and drove by your house. All looks good! Mufasa must be a good guard cat if he is there! Thinking of you and the team and wishing you all positive thoughts for what lies ahead. XOXO, Nicole

Kare and team,
I am so sorry to hear about the tragedy. I am keeping the Sherpas and their families and all of your continued safety in my prayers. I hope you’re having good weather and continue to stay strong with your spirits as up as it can be…“expect problems and eat them for breakfast before your day begins”. Miss you Kare, can’t wait to lay on the beach together in June!!
