Mom's Fruit Cake

May 11, 2013

Our  expedition leader, Phil Crampton has been receiving daily weather forecasts from Seattle and from Switzerland.  The two forecasts have been differing pretty significantly but now they seem to be in more agreement.  The weather (up high on the mountain) now appears to be improving faster than previously thought.  This is a good sign.  The pattern now seems to be that things are very quiet in the night and early morning and then the winds pick up around 10 a.m. It is definitely warmer than when we first arrived which is obviously a good thing.

The Tibetans have finished fixing the ropes to the summit today and our Sherpa team has already stocked all three high camps with everything we need.  We have a fantastic group leader and very strong Sherpas. I have Mom's fruit cake packed so we are all set to go.  Just waiting on the weather now…Happy Mother's Day Mom!
