In Base Camp!

Yahoo! Made it into base camp this morning! Always a welcome retreat. Good
food and lots of friends! SO we plan several days here to acclimatize, then
start some training and ladder practice. Very nice weather! This afternoon
there was a very good team leader meeting. Discussion on fixing the upper
mountain. Feels so good to finally be here and the start of our climb.

Kala Patar Summit!

Laurie and Robin summated Kala Patar today along with Brian. Were staying in
Gorak Shep tonight at over 16,400 ft. Tomorrow base camp. Also tomorrow we
have to say a sad goodbye to Laurie and Robin. They will start back down to
Lukla in the morning when we go up to camp. So we are close to actually
starting the adventure! Photos from the trek up to Lobouche yesterday!
