Team 11, Team Less Worse, reaches Camp 1 in beautiful weather

Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Team Less Worse calling in from Camp 1. We had a good day today of moving our gear and food and fuel up to our next camp, Camp 2 (at 9,500 feet).

It’s been another beautiful day, lots of sunshine, lots of nice, crisp snow conditions early in the morning that make traveling easy. Everyone seems to be doing quite well, happy with the pace and digging the sunny weather. Food has been excellent and we’re missing you. Anyway, please join us tomorrow when we report in from Camp 2, ta ta for now, sweet dreams.
