Rest day -- yes, a real one!
We climbed up to around 16,000 ft yesterday as you will have seen if you were watching the SPOT. It is not as steep as it looks and everything is set up very well and very safely. When you come back down to a lower altitude (14,000 ft) after a high altitude climb, everyone is pretty worn out and we all slept for 12 hours or so. The remaining members of the group are doing very well and we've been enjoying a rest day at camp today. In fact, there is some poorer weather coming in, so we may be here for a few days.

Ahhh, it's starting to get serious! Hope you don't have to spend the next few days in a tent. That would be tough. Rod

Any one would think you were related to the ice explorer Shackelton.

I told some of my students about the Windfarming Aussie who lives in a rather tame Steinbach and needs to test himself from time to time in less predictable circumstances. Hope it all goes according to plan. Stay safe, Merle

Hi Adam, I'm following from afar, what a great journey you're on. And as you said, wet wipes are a terrific invention for times like now.
