All, I just spoke with my
brother Dan and they have arrived at Camp VI (3), 27,200 ft. They are feeling
well and the weather is looking great for their summit bid tomorrow. It is now
8:30pm at Mt. Everest and his team is enjoying their energy packed dinner
which consists of a few MREs and lots of fluids. After dinner, they plan to
rest for a few hours before waking up at 11pm to begin their final push
towards the summit. Current weather forecasts are reporting almost perfect
weather at the summit, with a light northerly wind of only 8-14 mph and -2F.
If all goes as planned, they anticipate reaching the summit of Mt. Everest
