3 or so to go!!

The boys just passed those weird steps(ladder?) that we saw in their presentations!! It is currently 5:58 AM in Tibet and they are still feeling strong and confident. Justin said three hours to go with Brian adding possibly 5 in the background on a radio dispatch. They are moving well and have lots of energy. They were a bit nervous of the wind this morning and got a bit of a late start.

KT & Rachel were really sleepy after poaching to the North Col and getting all but the shells of the boys tents and their trash. They drew the line there apparently.

Our hearts and minds are with you guys, I am personally one anxious Oestrike over here!

PS Dad should be arriving at BC today for a big shindig in a day or so.

Claire and Shaun here - the Aussies who spent Christmas with you in Colombia - we have been following your progress over the past weeks, and keep checking up on how things are going every day.

We wish you all the best and are holding our breaths for the guys to reach the summit. And a big hello to the rest of the family.
