Learning the game of Hearts

And its about time, because Brian was never that great at hearts. The boys have been at ABC with the girls for four days waiting out some weather. The weather has been sunny for a day, after a few cloudy ones, which prompted some teams to head back down to BC. Its up to ChomoLungma at this point.

Rest hasn't been so great, but its due to lack of exercise, not altitude says BWO. Because of the break in weather, they are moving up to North Col and leaving the ladies with the phone. But they will be in contact via walkie talkie. The plan looks like this. If weather is kind, they could go for it in the next three days. If it ain't so kind, they are headed all the way back to BC after hanging out at Camp 3 for several hours. (acclimization) Living above 20,000 feet for more than 10 days can be detrimental to overall health and BC allows for better rejunivation possibilities. Crazy sentence, Sorry!

They sound very positive, upbeat and ancy. Katie will be keeping us updated.

PS Happy Mother's Day-We wouldnt be here without Ya'll
