  Mt. Everest 2005: 7 Summits Club: We have gone to the villages to search for rams.


Update: May, 10. Alexander Abramov by the phone from the Everest Base Camp.

May, 9 the part of our team has met the Victory Holiday in the  base camp. We have invited leaders and members of other expeditions. There came leaders of the Indian expedition, the Norwegian expedition has come with its full complement. The big holiday was and be finished only at one o'clock, happy and pleased. Now, the most part of a team have a rest: who in Dzangmu is 35 kms below camp, who in Tashizong - is 50 kms of below the base camp. Today, May, 10, the big day of work was. We have gone to the villages to search for rams. In result have bought six rams who were going for transportation to base camp.

Weather today  was quite bad, at height of 4000 meters there was  very strong wind. It caused unpleasant dusty storms. Tomorrow, May, 11, for 11 mornings, a jeep is ordered to rise in base camp. The plan of an ascent is already completely ready. The first group leaves base camp upwards May, 13, the second - 15-th. The beginning of an ascent from АВС is appointed approximately on 16 and 18. 

In each team consist of 10 Members  and five Sherpas. And  three more Sherpas will stay, probably, in camp of 7700 meters. They will make reserve group in case of need to replace  diseased  Sherpas   or in time to come to the aid if there will be any unforeseen situation on mountain. Plans are those. All Members  agree with them. General meeting on which we shall specify details will be  held tomorrow. While any of  Member   is not sick, any of Sherpa is not sick. We think,  it is because our camp  is well  equipped. A good feed, now we have bought still  fish, have bought 4 water-melons.  13th of May is a birthday of Dyma Moskalev. We want to eat these water-melons in base camp to congratulate him. It is a lot of also fresh vegetables and fruit. Our camp is considered one of the best, many so speak. We have very good sauna where we periodically invite our friends.  Good tents, in them it is warm, gas heaters, light are provided. Everything  that we need.
