Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 17, Sunday
Location: Periche, for lunch. 13,500 feet. Heading to Tengboche.

Sunny. 15 degrees start, 50 degree in sun.

Heading out. Strolling along. 7 hours of downhill hiking. Loving more oxygen in the air and the warmer weather.

Melissa says just breathe. Lisa says breath "If you can't breath nothing else matters."

Dan's puns are back. Some are advocating leaving him at altitude.

Quiet on trail today. All are looking forward to lower altitudes as you can tell from comments.

Be sure to ask your family and friends about the luxury rooms last night. Some even had western style toilets, water was frozen in the bowls though.

Hi sister!! Just wanted to say happy descent to you all and that Mom would love to hear from you and Dad when you are able (check your email, I sent you her number) The Bengals did get a W but man, it wasn't looking likely for the entire first quarter :) Love you!

Thank you so much for carrying the flag with my mother’s name on it, that means a lot to me. The pictures of your climb are amazing and they show how beautiful this part of the world is. It looks like a truly inspirational place. Kassi, Wesley and I can’t wait for you to return as we are anxious to see the pictures you took and hear the stories you have to tell.

Since we're providing you football updates - the Patriots play Monday night! I'll post my update then :-) A very good Sunday here - and sounds like there as well. I can't imagine hearing about the mundane of picking out knobs for my new cabinets is all that interesting with the glory you're experiencing, but well, it's been the highlight of my day and you're stuck with what we write :-) Thinking of you - stay well.

I don't know when Ruchi posted that, but the game has picked up :) Hoping for a good second half. Our D really has Dalton's back. Hope the trip down is going well! You'll be back to normal altitude in no time, and then back in the Motherland! Momma is eagerly awaiting your arrival! Have fun!!! Stay safe, everyone! Love, Beej

Missed Saturday's post, was flying back from sunny California. Many Congrat's to you & all. What a spectacular feat! There can't be anything else on the bucket list left to surpass this! Can't wait to hear all about the climb next month. Safe trip down & safe trip home for everyone. What a special bond with each other, the mountain & the universe.

We're playing the Browns right now, I'm not sure that we have the stamina to finish this season strong :( Went to Yogini's garba last night, it was fun! The kids enjoyed running around doing raas. Enjoy the trek down, glad to hear Dad is doing fine, although not sure I needed Kaka's 37 texts at 5am!! But I think he was excited to know he was fine too :) Love you, talk soon!
