  Everest 2006 Team No Limits: Team No Limits, Matt Tredway, Reporting From Base Camp


 

Matt Tredway Reporting From Base Camp: Hello, this is Matt Tredway, reporting from Everest base camp. We are all working our way up the mountain . . . camp by camp. The rotation process of going up and down the mountain to facilitate proper acclimatization is a long one. Since we descended from camp II, we have been feasting on our fine base camp cuisine. At the higher camps, it is harder to eat, digest, or enjoy food - so intake is limited. The recovery process at base camp entails getting plenty of rest, fluids, and the much needed caloric intake to prepare our bodies for the next ascent of the mountain.

The team is sorry that our friend and team member, Larry, must head home. However, we all agree it to be the wise and prudent decision for him. In order to take on this enormous task, you just have to put yourself out there and see what happens. Larry gave the mountain his best, and that is all we can do up here.

We are trying to put our best foot forward. Up here, on top of the world, you just do what you need to do -and pray that you get lucky in terms of health, weather, and the health of the Sherpas. There are so many variables and they are all out of our control.

Here we are in May and the next few months should be incredibly exciting. I am looking forward to sharing great stories and slides with my students upon my return.

Talk to you soon, Matt
