Back at Base Camp

I got a call last night from the Everest crew; they sounded great. Brian & Justin are back at Base Camp hanging out with Katie & Rachel. They are chilling at BC; taking some day hikes and making friends with other expeditions. In the next few days they are going to start the trek up to ABC. To ensure Katie & Rachel are properly acclimatized; the group will spend 2 nights at an interim camp between BC and ABC.

Brian & Justin send a big thanks to all the folks who participated in the Satellite Climb this past weekend. Please leave a comment with your story so we can fill them in they next time they call.

WKYC News Channel 3 in Cleveland is going to re-air the Everest story during their 9am broadcast on Saturday or Sunday. (More than likely on Sunday) Keep checking http://www.wkyc.com/ and http://www.therestofeverest.com/ for updates.

Hey Brian and Justin I've been following the blog and am so impressed! It sounds like everything is going well and most importantly you all are healthy-keep eating! Our Satellite climb was canceled due to avalanche conditions so I did a hike/climb along the foothills of boulder taking the Mesa Trail from Chautauqua Park to the Base of Eldorado Canyon (where I sometimes climb in the summer but in the winter snowshoe with my dog Nalah. About 13.5 miles round trip. Alone it was nice to be able to reflect on what you all are doing and what your expedition is doing for everyone touched by lung cancer. You guys are amazing! My family and friends are wishing you all healthy and safe travels as you concor "The Beast"!
