Shishapangma: Elias & Team Prepare for Their Second Rotation

Comedian Mitch Hedberg once said during a comedy skit, "I just want to be a mountain climber so I can wear brightly colored clothes, hang out at Base Camp, and drink hot cocoa." Today, for the second day in a row, we harnessed our inner Hedberg, and did just that. Our last rest day before the start of our second rotation onto the upper slopes of Shishapangma was filled with nourishment of all forms, and plenty of rest. Some of us practiced our favorite base camp activity, "sport eating." Others took competitive napping to the next level. While another team member continued his rein as supreme cribbage champion of Shishapangma 2016. Regardless of our chosen rest day activities, we all did the best we could to prepare our bodies and our minds for what lies ahead. Our second rotation begins tomorrow with a move to Depot Camp, followed by a return to Camp 1 at 20,000', and finally up to Camp 2 near 22,000' by the end of the work week. We're all feeling great, looking good, and ready for the upcoming challenge here on the 14th highest mountain in the world. We'll check in tomorrow from Depot Camp. RMI Guides Robby, Elias, Adam, and the Shishapangma Team

Good to hear everyone is rested, but no doubt when this is read that recuperation will be a dim memory! Be strong on the way to Camp 2 and be well. We’ll eagerly await tomorrow’s update!

Go, GALINA, GO!

Как ты там? Пусть уже тебе снятся пляжи занзибара и теплые воды океана.  И греют!

Мне сегодня знаешь кто написал в whatsapp? Мужик, который вез нас с ресторана, где мы ели утиный шашлык после пика Кумбель! Который все хотел в горы и обещал хорошимй шашлык.

Прошло чуть больше года и он вдруг объявился. =) Может про тебя узнать ;)))) ОБНИМАЮ!
