Hey, today is January 20th, Sunday evening and I’m reporting (this is Matthew Emht reporting) for Team Loco Lucho, also known as Team 9. Today as a team we had a nice carry, we finally went above Base Camp, up to the site of our Camp 1 (at 15,500 feet).
It was a nice morning, clouds coming in and out, fog lifting over the valley floor; we had a couple hours of sun and it ended up clouding up and we had a warm, warm snow showers today. It was not very windy, it was pretty pleasant, but a bit wet and some nice mountain motif.
We came back to camp and enjoyed a wonderful dinner, our last dinner down at Base Camp, stuffed squash and grilled pork, it was very nice. And the team’s all in good spirits and looking forward to moving up the mountain to Camp 1.
“Are we good?” (asked to team in background, yells and screams from team heard in background).
