 Alpine Ascents Cho Oyu Autumn 2006: It is getting Deep


It is getting deep: Friends, family and loved ones,

Day three of the storm, and the troops are holding up well despite having to dig our way out of the tents this morning. Once again, cards were a popular diversion to the incessant howling of the driving wind and snow. Music and e-mail ran a close second for things to do as the roar of distant avalanches echoed across the valley. Fortunately, our dinning tent has a functioning propane heater. News of which has spread across ABC, thus ensuring us a steady stream of visitors to amuse us since every team on the mountain is currently hiding out the storm in ABC. Our friend Blair almost feels like a member of our team by now! The sun did show its shinning face briefly this afternoon just long enough to allow Two Dogs to build a snarling snowman in the “front yard”. Luckily, spirits here in the AAI camp are holding up well as all the climbers and crew get along smashingly! The card game Uno is apparently the universal language of humor. We’re holding out for clear skies tomorrow. Wish us luck!

Cheers!
Vern & Lawdon
