News from Nepal

Unfortunatly, I just missed a call from Brian and the crew from the satellite phone. He left a message saying that they are all in high spirits having a really great time. They are in the Khumbu region around 4600 meters or 15,000 feet. They are about two and a half days away from the Everest Overlook in an area called Dugla. That is about all the info i got, but hopefully we will hear more soon when they get some more satellite minutes. I will make sure to update as soon as I find out more informaion. Cheers, Katie

Hey guys,
Two quotes that come to mind:

"Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is."
-Vince Lombardi

"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." - The Little Engine that Could

And, as a good friend once told me: take calculated risks.

Much love, prayers and peace,
