Getting ready for the morning JOI hike and thinking of you guys hiking near the top of the world. Stay strong and enjoy the scenery. Glad everyone is feeling well so far. I didn't see Tom S in the group shot. I hope he was taking the picture. How is the knee holding up Tom?

I wish I had sent you with an piece of paper or fabric and a Sharpie. My friend, Kate, lost her sweet son to drug addiction this past summer. Henry would have turned 18 last month. Friends all over the world are writing Henry's name and holding it up in all the beautiful, wonderful places so we can imagine Henry there. If you can find something to write on, take a picture of just the sign with "Henry" scrawled on it. It'll mean so much to his mom.

Alison, we are all so proud of you back here at the Coalition! Not that you needed to go this far to inspire us. :-)

Woodcarvers are following your progress. Still can't believe you can email from remote Himalayan villages but the pack can't be fixed with duct tape! The pictures look much nicer than Google Earth. EnJoy!!!

Tim & I just returned from a great dinner at Sips and I thought I would check the web site for an update on your group. Hope you are all eating well and enjoying life. The Gold Rush group will be missing you & Allison at tomorrow's run, but the weather here is so miserable (high of 40 tomorrow with more rain)that you are lucky to be in balmy Nepal. Don't lose your meds and please enjoy yourself. Love from this side of the world.....

Looks like all is going well, except that the altitude sure causes hair to grow oddly, or maybe it is that stuff in one of the bottles on the table.

That hat looks like the 'fro you sported in the 70's! Give Paul a big sloppy kiss for me. Miss you all and wish I was there!

From Annalie: I wish you could've gone to the art exhibit with us. From Robin: Only feeling good? Maybe tomorrow you'll feel great! I keep looking at your picture from yesterday. Write lots in your journal for me. Love you!

Thinking of you all on the Mountain. Love reading your updates and trying to picture what it's really like there...can't wait for the "Flanigan photo fair" to see where you all are lucky enough to be right now...Thank you all for what you are doing - I've talked to some cancer survivors the last few days and shared what you've all undertaken to support the American Cancer Society and their appreciation is so great it's almost tangible. You are truly making a difference and inspiring s
