Just looked for my mom message I KNOW I did first thing this morning…but where did it go? Anyways, loved hearing the crackly voice of my "going strong" baby from 18,00 feet. (We listen every time we come in the house.) Talked about your trip with R&J and Tere at Olives lunch today. Love you LOTS!!

Hi Mom, Dad is here and we just read together that you made it above the the base camp, woooohooooo, congratulations to you and the entire team!!!! We know that it was intense and difficult but we never had any doubt that you would make it. I just want you to promise that you will never do an Iron Man, ok, enough is enough. Just kidding! We love you and can't wait to have you back!

Congrats to all of you! An amazing feat for sure! Enjoy the LLLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG walk back but the hardest part is now behind you. Just remember those who did not walk back and those who never had the chance to get there in the first place. I'm very proud to be associated with such fine people! Namaste!
