Everest Base Camp

Hello Everyone,

Robert was able to call from EBC this morning. The cell phone provider (NCell) has restored service.  The internet is expected to be working tomorrow. (That's Nepal maybe, maybe not.) We have not spoken since April 6 but have kept in touch through email which are in the previous post. The internet went down and then there was nothing to report to you until this morning.

The weather at base camp is very cold.  Robert took a 5 hour hike today. He is well and fit so that is good.  His friend Scott left EBC last Saturday with his Sherpa guide, Ghumbu to climb Lobeshe East. Robert said he thinks Scott should be back down and hopes to receive a report from Scott soon.

I am hoping for a full report of the last week via email. As soon as I have it I will post here to keep you up to date on Robert's Quest for Everest.

Thanks for arm chair traveling with me.  It is nice to have the company.

  1. Your husband nicely came and shared about his experiences with our homeschool group last fall. We will all be praying for him and watching for updates! We will also be praying for you - being separated and still at home has to be hard!

    God bless!
