Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 13, Wednesday
Location: Dole, 12,500 feet

Sunny again, yeah Ed found us!

We crossed a bridge and there he was. Okay, we did have a little info we would see him as of last night. Tom stayed in Namche for a few days to hike and Ed continued on with Lhakpa and a porter. They will go onto Pangboche and overnight there tomorrow and then start a loop back. Damaroo is going to be joining him. The day after day is tiring people plus the cold and altitude. We got into camp about a half hour late last night after dark as we were traveling slower then expected. A few people have colds now and that does not help. Now we are enjoying sunshine, a few showering, napping, laundry, catching up on journal. Being low again gives us a chance to recharge and warm up.

Oh, cinnamon rolls for lunch, yeah!

Hi Mom! I hope you didn't get sick! I started working on my next IEP today. Meeting should be beginning of December. Oh Happy Days! I got a lot done at school, copying and such for most of next week and maybe even into the week after! Mike and I started planning for Thanksgiving Dinner. We made Dinosaur Mutha sauce this weekend. I'll have to teach you how to make it for scott of Christmas. We miss you and Love you!

Hi, Melissa. Hope you are well. Things here are fine. Had a few snow flurries yesterday morning and temps are beginning to drop so it looks like winter is here. You would probably find the temps here to be pretty warm compared to what you are experiencing, huh? Hope you aren't one of the ones who got a cold. If you did, feel better soon. Take care.

Hey Lise, Finally found the website. Looks like you guys have some tough hiking behind you. I am sure you are enjoying yourself very much. And remember this...a bad day in the Himalayas will still beat a good day at GSH any time. Stay tough and take care. See you when you get back.

It's officially getting cold here, although that statement is probably making you roll your eyes, I'm sure it's nothing compared to where you are. Lulu is on mouse patrol, she has caught 2 so far. I am terrified of waking up to a "gift" on my pillow. After dreaming that I was looking for you and then being woken from that dream by a text from you, I found a penny on my chair when I walked into work this morning and that never happens. It's been a good day for Crapella connections. Love

Thinking of you guys and what awesome experiences you must be having. FB is boring these days without seeing your posts of an early morning run-then bike ride plus an afternoon paddle followed by a run under the moon. Now that there is snow on the ground those snowshoes will have to be added to your daily Ironman workouts! Cinnamon buns-I should of known there would be something sweet in it for you Emily-must be a future FB Pic. Miss you guys, have fun on top of the world.

Glad you're getting a chance to rest today. Think we see you in the pic. You all look great!! Vince was here for dinner last night and we missed you. We can't wait til we're all together again. There will be lots of food and good wine and a fire in the fireplace. Hang in there, you're having an amazing adventure! XXX

Wow! Cinnamon buns. You have inspired me to swing by the evil Burger King and grab a mini. Recharge and restore.
