Is the climb over? Reports done from the mountain?

We can not imagine how are you feelling right now.
Just send you all our power.

Hey Gary, Looks amazing. Hope you are enjoying the view and there is plenty of coffee. Good luck and hope to see picture from the summit.

Building a wall certainly sounds interesting. No doubt many or most of you are experts at that having made snow forts as kids! (Or adults). Good luck everyone.

Colin - I’m sure you don’t need any extra motivation, but I thought I might need some when I did my sailing trip. Here is something I had posted on the inside of the boat:
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” John F. Kennedy
Good luck. Speak soon.
PS - things are going along smoothly in Vancouver

As I wait for the presidential debate to begin, I find myself kind of envying you, 18,500 feet up there, breathing like an emphysema patient and mostly cut off from the stupidity of the outside world. Despite my fear of heights, I may have to consider spending the next election in the Himalayas. 1/2 to 1/3 of the oxygen at sea level in exchange for a month with no Drumpf, Hillary, Kardashians or other oxygen thieves? I’d take that deal right about now.
Seriously, though, good luck on the summit push. Remember to wear your crampons on the midnight wee trip at the higher camps, observe your turnaround time and maybe by the time you get home, I’ll have taught Mom and Dad how to pronounce the name of the mountain you climbed. I tried it the other night with Dad after the anniversary party. Big mistake.
See you soon,

Always in my thoughts and prayers. Climb strong.

I hope you are having a nice time resting at base camp for a few days…but really, isn’t every day a rest day for you? It must be nice always being carried up the mountains! You better be keeping everyone in good spirits, but if you need some help, tell Mark that Jack got a B on his chemistry test yahoo!! He must really be scared of what is going to happen when you get home. Remind Mark to take some good pictures, the frames in the living room need an update : )
Be safe and make good choices!

Sorry we missed your call to us this morning with the happy anniversary wishes, but we really appreciated your message and expression of affection. The diner and after party last night was a smash success (or so I’m told). As you might have expected, in keeping with my careful allocation of excess consumption occasions, I duly allocated last night’s affair as my one such occasion for 2016. And as I’d expected, today was a total loss, dedicated exclusively to aspirin, antacids, rehydration and horizontal recovery! Hopefully your retreat to Base camp was uneventful and the rest there today fulfilling and complete - and even better than mine!. Wishing you and the team nothing but fair skies and calm air from here on!
Love from us both.
