Base Camp

1/1/2011

We’re at base camp after 3 days of walking….. With a lot of entertainment from our freestate farming compadres who walked in shorts and strops all the way – hard core!!!! We’ll see if they continue with strops on the glacier tomorrow… They have lots of biltong and whiskey that they’re sharing with us. The rest of the team is well. We all have various heart rates and oxygen levels so not sure what’s suppose to be good or not. Time will tell. Today we had a rest day and went high altitude bouldering. It’s by far the most impressive boulder I’ve ever seen! Tomorrow we start carrying loads up to camp 1 at 5200m. Weather is looking bleak for the next 2 days but then we’ll have some sunshine. Will update in a couple of days time Adios amigos!!! And Happy New Year!!! Pierre & Marianne
