1 May 2013 -
Today was our 2nd day of rest in Base Camp and tomorrow about half the group
will go up to ABC again. We spend our days sleeping, eating, reading and
watching movies in Base Camp; a welcome change after the cold and windy ABC.
Also our two North Col members Avi and Jeremy left our team today and are on
their way back to Kathmandu.
So tomorrow our 2nd rotation starts where we will try to sleep on the North
col a couple of nights and touch 7500m. This will finish our acclimatization.
After this we will go down for our last rest in Base camp before the summit
push, which is still many weeks from now.
The 2nd half of our team will go up a day behind the first group (tomorrow).
This will give us some more space and will make logistics easier.
Right now it's windy on the mountain, but better weather is forecasted. So
everything is well and the whole team is strong, healthy and in good spirits,
Greetings, Arnold Coster, expedition leader
