Day 48: May 13: This is
Sarah Henley reporting from Base Camp. I got up this morning, at 5 am, to bid
the Mountain Madness team farewell on their attempted journey, to the top of
the world. The sherpas, the second half of the team, will leave tomorrow
because they would rather sleep at Base Camp than at Camp 2 for two nights.
This morning, other than a little foggy eyed, everyone was feeling great but I
think still feeling the anticipation of what's to come. They all arrived
safely to Camp 2 in the early afternoon today. Now their job is to eat and
relax as much as possible for the next day and a half. After their rest day
at Camp 2 tomorrow they have a long couple days ahead of them... During their
summit attempt (beginning around 9 pm on the 16th in Nepal, this would be the
morning of the 16th in North America) I will be sending more frequent
dispatches - so stay tuned!!!
