The Blockade Boys in good spirits and safely back at Base Camp after a 16 hour summit day.

Hey there friends, family and loved ones, Blockade Boys calling in, we are back down in base camp after our successful trip to the top of Indonesia, top of Australasia, top of Oceania, wherever, we made it to the top, all of us. Amazing day, 16 hours, 16 ½ hours of fun and games, we had a little snow, we had a little rain, had a little sleet, a little hail and had a lot of rappelling in wet conditions, waterfalls running down the mountain. But everybody is back at base camp and tired, but in good spirits. So thank you for checking in on us and know that we are thinking of you. Ciao for now.
