Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 14, Thursday
Location: Pangboche

Sunny, 55 degrees. 25 last night. 13,200 feet. Heading to Dingboche, 14,700 feet.

Picture is Melissa who raised $2500 to help support pancreatic cancer research who passed. In the background is Ama Dablam.

Sad to leave our friends on the trail behind but anticipate they will have a good trek.

Lisa would like to say "help".
Rebecca liked we had dinner at lodge with 6 time Everest summitter.
Melissa says hard to gain when we are losing, up and down, above river 2000 feet below on skinny trail.
Ken wants to stay and work with local carpenters using hand tools.

We wish we could send "help" in the form of a very large bottle of red wine. We'll have one waiting for you when you get back! Can't wait to see you and have Thanksgiving together and hear all the stories and see all your pictures. Bianca says, "Congratulations on posting your first picture to Facebook. You'll never live it down!"

Lise, the smile on your face says everything!Cannot wait to hear some of the stories and to see some of the photos. Want you to have MY pizza when you recover. Garret said it all for me- You CAN see the history of the world from where you are, and taste it, and feel it, and be part of it all. Have enjoyed following all of you, doing what I could never do. Have a safe journey back.

55!! Could you send some warm weather our way? Been battling seriously delayed metro trains all week - and you think you've got it tough! :) Kidding aside - it's been hopping here - major scope-creep on the remodel - I'm gonna have an all-new apartment by the time you get down from that mountain so keep trekking - I need a few more days! :-) Stay well!

Hi mormor,I had a dream in which you stepped up on a mountain peak and saw the Dalai Lama singing the entire history of the word to the tune of the Beatles song tomorrow never knows. It seems as if your mighty quest has even found it's way into my subconscious.

Sounds like your having an epic honeymoon! Not a term often used with honeymoons, which makes it even better. Good to hear everyone is safe and having a great experience!

Hi Mom! Its so nice to see a picture of you! Sunday is a full moon and boy could I tell today! Rumor is I will have another friend starting very very soon. So soon that I will have him before you come back! I broke down and got myself a new winter jacket. The big puffy blue one doesn't fit anymore and I think it's actually at your house, so that doesn't help. miss you and love you!

Hello Grandma, I hope you are having a good time. I miss your tummy scratches and hope you bring me back some treats. If you see the abdominal snowman, bark at him for me. In the meantime, I will keep looking out the window and yelp at the birds and my rival puppy neighbors. Love, Wesley P.S. I am hungry, can you bring me back some treats? I hear food tastes better when it came from higher altitudes.

You had dinner with a 6 timer...Wow. I am sure Mom loved seeing the posts and photos when Kim visited the other day. Keep up the great sprits. As Dad would say, pick up your bootstraps! Love, Linda

You find woodworkers wherever you go. Enter into your minds journal for another "story" to tell around the table. Almost to base camp. Enjoy the rest of the experience. You two keep safe and warm.

Neglected to mention my nails are trimmed. Hope you don't mind Florescent pink. Oh well. Love the vets. Lots of kisses gets me lots of treats. Yummmmm. As the old saying goes just keep putting one paw in front of the other and you will get there. Licks.

Sohashah - hope you're feeling a bit warmer at a balmy 55! :) And you know, that Melissa knows a lot of famous people, is Donald Duck's voice really like that or is that just for TV? GO TEAM GO! Dad - Enjoy your new adventure, it will still be challenging I'm sure, and it will still be an adventure of a lifetime! You saw Everest!! Love you both :)
