Yes Lynne, all the fat bastards are there in spirit.  I am here in America, working out, lifting beers.  It will be interesting to hear how this Everest season compares to last.

I am here as well. I wish the team all the best. Eat a few Momos for me.

Am looking forward to joining you guys again soon for another attempt.

I hope the border crossing goes well, seeing as I am not their to scream at the locals and organize you all. :-)

Best regards from Munich.

Hi all!

good to have you back online  8)
We miss you all, we were just talking about the fat bastards team when having dinner here in Xegar (New Tingri). And yes, Jamie, we missed you at the border, everything went much too smoothly  ;D

I will post the main stories and pictures on www.sightoneverest.com/blog have you seen the latest pictures and videos? Would love to read your comments there 8)

All the best from a chilly Xegar,

Harry

Well some of us have never been to the FB's Club.............but that doesn't prevent us from tuning in to Lorenzo's radio blogs in Belfast and following events on the roof of the world!

Enjoy yourselves.......

Love and best wishes to Lorenzo and the Dromara 1.

Messages passed on. Lorenzo is back at BC. Noel has done North Col OK and returned with others to lower alt to recover - no apparent eye problems.

If you could give Lorenzo a message from Dave and me, I would greatly appreciate it. Please let him know we are thinking of him. We are very relieved his throat is on the mend and that he is off the antibiotics. We wish him a successful acclimazation to the north col. I think he will enjoy the solitude of climbing alone on his first rotation.

Thank you so much,
MC   :)

Have done that, MC.

Meanwhile, here's an article from the BBC News website about the strange weather patterns Everest has been experiencing this Winter and Spring.

Please pass on a message to Lorenzo. Dave and I are sending tons of positive energy as he, Noel, Kirk, Enrik, Ronnie and the Norwegians start their ascent to IC and then ABC. We hope the weather window will hold out for a summit attempt. Also, congratulations to Vladimir for his early summit today!

Thank you,
MC   :)

...he's at IBC (5700m) with Noel and saying that Everest looks very clear, weather "excellent" and there's little wind. Just goes to show you can have completely different weather on one side of Everest to the other. Expects to be well on the way to the summit by this coming weekend.

Thanks “Big Girl”

The more news the better.  I heard Noel is practically running up the “hill”!!!

I am wishing them all a safe journey as they start this final push to “the top of the world”.  Success to all.  Climb strong and stay focused.

Cheers
