After two grueling days Brian and Justin are relaxing in their tent at Advanced Base Camp (ABC). Brian said it was slow moving and a pretty difficult hike to get up to ABC. They sounded a little tired and said they are feeling the altitude, so they will stay and get acclimated for a few days. They will hopefully move up to the North Col in the next couple of days when they are feeling strong and ready. Besides that the food is great, but ABC is extremely crowded.

Found a website that maps the North Ridge Route and follows each teams progress up the mountain. As a visual person, it really helps me! Team LUNGevity is listed and links to the blog.

Katie & Rachel,

Sorry I can't get the item to you guys before you leave to give to Justin but I'll be with them in heart and soul.

Tell them the Fargo guys are checking their progress daily.

Hey everyone,

Justin left a voice dispatch on The Rest of Everest. It's dispatch number 14. He called from ABC.


How amazing to be back home in Colorado (arrived last night) but still hear from the guys even though I was with them in person only a few days ago!

I love technology!!!

Take care,
