Hi, this is Andy. John got quite sick, mostly due to a tummy bug and lack of sleep. He went down to Base Camp where a doctor fixed him up. He’s looking fit and strong now. He’s running a few days behind us, we are down at 4200m and John is up at 7050m. We will all be back on schedule together in a few days. I will pass on your wishes. Don’t worry, as I saw him 2 days ago and he really is better. Andy
So – that’s as much news as we’ve had. Everest is a hell of a thing. If you don’t know anything about it, check out the program that has been showing on Discovery Channel ‘Beyond the limit’ – its very sobering!
mountain climbing is hard...i cannot do it, esp on the himalayas where the air is thin...i do trek sometimes and i am from the himalayas...
tell them to watch out for yetis:)
