  Mt. Everest 2005: Vojvodina Everest Expedition 2005: WE ARE REFRESHING FOOD AND WAITING


Update 5/22/2005: WE ARE REFRESHING FOOD AND WAITING

May 22nd, 14:28 PM (ET) BC - 5170 m. As we prolong our stay here because we have probably to wait June, I have to go down to BC to refresh storage of food and the others requisites. Fresh meat mostly. Weather is bad. It isn't 3 days without strong wind ( 120 km/pH) We had not fixed ropes until yesterday - India's Army team did it finally. Now we are waiting for 3  days of quietly weather to make this why we are here. Mico Jovovic, leader of Vojvodinean expedition

 

 

May 22nd: ABC - 6400 m: Our upsurge to the top we prorogued (delay) by reason of bad weather. We appreciated that upsurge and  return for only 3 days will be to risque. Today is 56th day of our expedition and we still insist to save good mood and patience.

We were seeing forecast, next window ought to be at the end of May. We are prepared for it. Altitude camps are ready and our haversacks encased. We are in BC (6400 m) and we are  sane and smutty. May 21st it was first successful  Northside's upsurge to the top. unfortunately it was tragedy by reason of bad weather.  There is mountaineer from Slovenia missing

Update: Vojvodinian expedition "Everest 2005"

May 19th ABC (6400 m) 11.00 AM

Yesterday (18.00 PM Local Time) it was meeting in ABC and it was making not agreement about nothing. One hour later it was meeting again but in Russian agency Seven Summit. There were members of expeditions from China, Norway, India's military (two teams) and Vojvodina (Former Yugoslavia). They agreed that four men from China, Norway, and the Indian Army team will fix the ropes from today (May 19th) to Saturday (May 21st).

This morning we have had conference of our team which was full of tension. Two of us intend to go alone and the other pair ought to be prompt for next chance. It was long debate. We decided that most rescue day for the first team is the May 22nd because forecast and bad weather we expect. So we will not separate our team and we will wait. We are appreciative to www.Everestnews.com  for forecasts.

Thank you EverestNews.com, you are real nice friend. Best regard to all, in Serbia especially.

M. Jovovic, leader of the expedition

Note: They are waiting, all of them!

Dispatches

Vojvodina is the northern province of Serbia and Montenegro. It is located in the heart of the Balkans in Southeast Europe. Although Vojvodina is flat, climbing has become a tradition. The first Vojvodina climber to scale Mont Blanc was in 1924, since then they have reached the summits of the highest peaks in South America, Asia, Europe and Australia. The only peak they are missing is Everest and they hope to climb to the summit in 2005.

The expedition is being organized by the Mountaineering Association of Vojvodina. The members of the team are as follows, Miodrag Jovovic, Milivoj Erdeljan, Goran Ferlan, Andor Luhovic, Mirjana Vasut, Mirjana Stevanovic, Iso Planic and Hoselito Bite.
