May 2 Everest Expedition Update

We spent another day in base camp today after waking up last night intending to move up to Camp 2. Vanessa wasn’t feeling well, and hadn’t slept, so we pushed everything back a day to allow her to recover and get some rest before the push up to Camp 2. We went back to sleep around 2am, and woke up to another beautiful morning at EBC. Vanessa got some rest today and is feeling much better this evening, so we’re gearing up to head up early tomorrow morning (1am wake up call…) The weather is forecast to be nice in the morning again, with clouds building in the afternoon, so it should be nearly perfect climbing weather during the very early hours of the morning. We took advantage of this extra day in base camp to go for a hike, and get a little extra rest, which didn’t hurt anybody. We’re looking forward to everyone feeling good (as good as you can feel when waking at 1am) and heading to Camp 2 tomorrow! We’ll post, or call in an update from Camp 2 tomorrow night.

      It sounds like Greg is doing well, and we’re hopeful that Vanessa will feel better after a bit more rest and recuperation!
