Hola, de equipo Sí Se Puede! We are at the Whymper Refuge, here on Chimborazo, watching a beautiful sunset right now, getting our stuff together. We just had some pasta. The drive over here was a little intimidating. We all got some stomach problems going on for a second, but then after the hike, once we got up here, looking at it, it looks pretty good.
We’re all feeling pretty motivated. Shatayu’s going to sit this one out and relax and do some reading. And me, and Ed, and Frances, are going to shoot for it around midnight tonight. So wake up at 11, have some breakfast, and take off.
We just want to give a shout out to the fam: Hi Mom and Pop, and little sister! Love you Chelsea!
And here’s Ed: “Hey Waenyod, miss you, can’t wait to see you in a week in Peru! Mom and Dad, hope you guys are well!”
“Hi, it’s Frances. Yeah hello, sorry I haven’t been able to call or email, just phones and internet access is limited, I’m sorry. I know that I’m thinking about you and I know that you’re thinking about us, and that will help us in the climb, so thank you.”
“Oh and Dad, congrats on the Forerunner!”
“Oh Paul, I’ll call you…” (transmission cuts out)
Adios, until tomorrow when we’ve all summited over 20,000 feet. Wish us luck tonight!
