Everest: I own you.

At least your base camp.

This is really just a teaser post. Internet up here is via satellite, and expensive, so I will do a full update tomorrow.  I just wanted everyone to know that I did indeed make it to Base Camp, and to the top of Kala Pattar, which was 5550 meters (18,209 feet) above sea level.  At this oxygen level (less than 50%), your brain tells you crazy things…

Anyway, more tomorrow.

Base Camp
Me. That is Mount Everest behind me. This was actually taken on Kala Pattar, since everest base camp is a pile of rocks and ice where you can’t even see the top of the mountain from.
