Friends, family, and loved ones, it’s Team Out and About giving you a shout. It is the 16th of May, Thursday 10pm here in Camp III (11,200 feet).
We are doing well; we are well ensconced into this camp. We spent most of the day in the red room, the yellow room, or the white room: the white room being somewhat ground/blizzardy storm conditions, the red room being our lovely dining tent, and the yellow room being our lovely sleeping, North Face PE25 tents.
Everyone’s doing well. We had what you’d call a “weather day” up here, no teams really moving anywhere. And we spent the day relaxing, hydrating, eating, going over crampons, and altitude-related instructional stuff, and generally just having a good time keeping our spirits up.
We’re hoping the weather will improve tomorrow and we can make a cache above Windy Corner (at about 13,500 feet).
Thanks for following along. Everyone sends their best home; Eric would like to send home love and hugs to Mom and to Melissa. We’ll give you guys a shout tomorrow.
