Ascent Denali: Team 11 Heading to 14,000ft Camp
This is Ben Jones, Expedition Leader for Team 11: Silence Means Yes
We're doing great here at the 11,200ft camp. We decided to take a rest day
today and enjoy getting some extra sleep, food, and water. We're getting
hydtrated for our big move up to the 14,000 foot camp. Everybody is doing
really well. Most of the day we spent having a nice long breakfast in the
morning. We had french toast and lots of coffee and just hanging out most of
the morning, afternoon and evening. Everybody is in bed now getting ready to
get up tomorrow early and move upt to the 14,000 foot camp tomorrow.
One quick personal message: Brian wanted to tell his family he loves them and
to tell his mom he's doing great. He wanted to tell Baby Laura he loves her.
Everybody else says hello too back to their families. We're having a good
time. We're having great weather.
