Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp #1 & #2

Date: Saturday, October 20
Location: Near Khumjung, 12,300 feet.

It was suppose to be an easy day. All dowhill. Well. We pulled into our lodge at 5 pm. 

 Highlight was the Tengboche Monastery. Amazing so big a place so far in. After that we went 1700 feet of downhill before needing to climb again. 

 This lodge is the best yet. Bathroom in the rooms with, get this, running water! Wow! We are down lower so it is a bit warmer. Dinner was some great momos and apple pie. Yummy! We are all perked up after our long day. 

 There is excitement about getting close to the end. Some took showers today. others are waiting. It is hard keep going after the excitement and push it took to get to base camp. But on we will go.

Sounds like it's a little more difficult to maintain the enthusiasm when the adrenaline is gone. But I know you will want to experience every detail offered on this journey.I can't wait to see Shannon's scrapbook of your trip. And you better be able to pronounce all the names, etc that are in the updates. Continue safe travels.

I am so proud of you Mom and I miss you so much. You must be so happy that you finally could take a shower! And running water, oh what a delicacy :-) Niko's doing great I did his hair today and he let me do it for as long as I needed to hear as his monster bows put back in his hair. My day was okay although I didn't sleep all night. No naps today either! I see dr. Ambrus on Monday morning at 8:40 a.m. which is great. I still haven't had my surgery yet. I'm hoping to have surgery this week.

Friends! Having so much fun following you and hoping the adventures are worth every exhausting step and labored breath. They must be! Drinking a mimosa to celebrate how far you've come and your approaching finish line. Let's have one together soon. Also, the world beyond the mountains is still crazy. Enjoy your reprieve :) Sending lots of love, warmth, strength.

Your strength, courage, drive, and passion absolutely “move mountains”!!!! May the satisfaction of your efforts provide you with what you need to complete your journey safely.

Ce soir enfin un logement et une douche qui ont du être appréciés par l'ensemble du groupe ! Tache d'être prudente pour la descente, j'ai hâte de regarder tes photos, je pense que tu as en prise beaucoup malgré les difficultés de l'ascension. Tu me manques et I love you.
