Friends, family, loved ones, Stuart here from Mucho Mucho Hadeem, also known as El Negro Fuego De Nada, calling in from our secluded Camp 1 (up at just over 15,000 feet).
Just in case this cuts out, I’ll just say everybody sends their love, we’re all doing well. We enjoyed a well deserved rest day today; bacon, eggs, pancakes, some syrup for breakfast/brunch and a hearty stew for dinner.
We’re in a weather pattern at the moment. We’re getting some good weather in the morning and by late afternoon, we’re getting these cumulous nimbus clouds building up and some precipitation in the form of snow/sleet late afternoon and the evening; pretty conducive though for our plans.
Yesterday we made a successful carry up to Amagino Col, which is our second camp (17,400 feet) and tomorrow we’ll be there as well. Everyone again says “hello”, sends their love. Kind of a little bit sad to be leaving the good life in the Bahamas down here, but the upper mountain is calling our name so we’ll be moving up tomorrow.
And Pete has a little bit of code here, so just passing across to Pete.
“We’re having blissful thoughts here on the mountain, and thinking of everybody at home. Thanks guys.”
That’s your code for the evening. Take care. Thanks for tuning in, ciao.
