  1. So good to get the update and know that you all are doing well and making smart (and no doubt, difficult) decisions. The mountain has looked stunning from Anchorage today–hope you are getting some weather respite and that the clear sky doesn’t make it too cold! Sending good thoughts and love your way.

  2. It’s great to hear from you, I was getting concerned. Glad to see you are moving up the mountain, but I’m sorry to hear that Carly and Corey are returning to basecamp. I hope all is well. I also hope they aren’t too disappointed that they aren’t going to make it to the top. Carly, I’m sure there will be a next time for you. Uncle Richie and I are so proud of you and how you can hold your own as tiny as you are, your backpack probably weights just about as much as you do. Sending you and Corey lots of positive energy! Love you so much!
