Don't listen to Martha. Great photos of old ugly dogs have little value! Miss playin' with you bro but my CC girls won sectionals so we're off to States and keepin' busy. Bought a new guitar to sing your praises with! Be well and keep pushin' on!

So, SLIM JIM LYNCH cops the blurry photo of himself that I took when you were playing at the Idle, uses it as his FB profile pic and THEN tells me there are NO royalties to be had by this gosh darn band of yours? Sheesh! I can't WAIT for the band MANAGER to get back here and kick his butt with a boot full of YAK dung. LOL. Following you every day. Peace!

Patrick, we haven't seen your pic in several days and have been concerned that you may have encountered a Yeti in heat. Please tell us that it isn't so ??? We were also wondering whether or not anyone has hit you in the back of the head recently ??? It builds character !!! Wishing you the best on your exciting journey. The Director and The Deputy

Hi there! What gorgeous photos! I can't wait to see more. And how cool to hear an audio message. We chatted today in a meeting that we are not sure if it is good or bad that you can be in such a remote location and still be somewhat connected to work! We survived week 1, and week 2 is off to a good start. Handled a staff meeting without you and jeanne is here for the next 2 days. Gavin update - 2 teeth and eating veggies like they are going out of style. Enjoying all the updates - we are

With this climb he honors his wife, a long time cancer survivor! He is a climbing warrior, previously climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, and has personally raised tens of thousands of dollars for cancer research! Paul is carrying a flag with the names of many who have been affected by cancer, including my mother and my sister. We are SO THANKFUL to

Here's a little news from sea level: Annie's baby made his arrival on Friday, three days early and she did it on her own - no C-section!!! Not easy - I think she feels like she climbed Mt Everest herself. Mama and baby Benjamin are both doing well. Have been thinking of you often - cheering you on. Val is here and sends her best.

Rick, you have to read the following joke very expressively...ok? Ready go. Two muffins were in the oven. The first muffin says, "Wow, it's really hot in here!" The second muffin says, "Holy cow a talking muffin!!" HAHA! Keep on keeping on everyone - the pictures are fantastic! Love, Sadie.

We are so proud of you! The updates including the pictures and audio are truly amazing. You and all of the climbers are in our thoughts and prayers! We can't wait to see you when you get back and see some more great photos. I saw a couple of jokes posted so thought I would send you a cow joke. What do you call a cow after she has a baby? Decaffeinated. We love you! Stay strong and safe.

Charlie, Maria and I are marking your progress on the National Geographic map. The Swarm has decided you must not be home so now they wait at the door. We continue to muddle through life here, so continue to have a great experience! And take pictures while the battery holds out. P.S. Darlene's tomatoes were great.

From Annalie: I miss you daddy. What did the banana say to the apple after breakfast? Nothing! Bananas don't talk! Want to hear another joke? What did the water bottle say to the fruit bowl after breakfast? I'm thirsty! From Robin: That's our girl. Two more weeks to go. Love and miss you like crazy, but in a healthy way. (Smile.) Hey, now that base camp has Internet access, send me an e-mail when you get there if you can!
