Day 37: May 2
This is Sarah Henley
reporting from Base Camp. Sorry the dispatches are backed up be a couple days
but we have been having some technical difficulties. What can you expect at
almost 18,000 ft. in the middle of the mountains.
It turns out, today and
tomorrow, the team is having two more rest days. The winds are just too
strong up on the mountain for anyone to be going up. The plan is to head to
camp 2 and then camp 3, to sleep, on May 4th if this wind dies down. This has
turned out being a good thing because Willie and I came down with a horrible
stomach bug. I will not gross you out with the details but it was not
pretty! However, things seem to be looking up at this point. The others in
our camp have managed to stay clear of whatever we had and lets hope it stays
that way. This bug seems to be going around all of base camp so we weren't
the only ones hit. The good news is it lasts only about 24 hours!
Happy mothers day to all
those mothers out there, especially to Marjorie, Dora, Joyce and Linda! We
are thinking of you!!!
