Robert has reported that there is a possibility of a weather window opening soon. The tentative plan is to leave Everest Base Camp for Camp 1 on the 18th or the 19th.
Robert is healthy and his knee is mending. Some of the group made a hike up to Camp 1 and back yesterday. His knee was better. He says he is getting a little bored with the waiting but it is part of the experience. His sat phone minutes are getting low so he won't call again until he has some news for us.
