Day 21: April 16
This is Sarah Henley
reporting from Everest Base camp. This morning our Sherpas left base at five
in the morning to carry loads up to camp 2. They were back at base camp by 1
pm - I told you they were fast! The rest of the team awoke when the sun hit
their tents at camp 1. They said there were periodic winds but when it was
calm it was quite warm.
Willie, Gary and Gene (who is
apparently feeling better) headed out late morning for camp 2. Murray opted to
stay at camp 1 for the day as he is feeling a cold come on. As a matter of
fact, this cold seems to be going around. By now, the rest of the guys should
be hiking back to camp for one more night there and then back to base
As for myself, I am heading
out in the morning to do some of my own climbing for about ten days. In the
mean time, Willie and the others will send dispatches when they can. Until
