Camp 2.  Wa Hoo.  This is great.  Remind them, Chris and Lynne, to drink their 4 liters of water.  Of course they know, but sometimes even the best of climbers lets this slide.  I'm sure their sherpas have plenty of snow to boil.

And tell them we are all thinking of them.  John

oh, never mind on the reminder (to drink water).  Listened to Lorenzo's latest blog, and he said they are drinking tons of water.  I just always push that, because it made a difference for me.

Well, if all goes well, we are less than 2 days away!

for those that don't know, once you get to camp 3, under most circumstances, you can only stay there one or two nights.  (last year we <team 2> did 2 nights, because of bad weather)

on the way down, hopefully no nights at camp 3, but one night is doable is there is enough oxygen.

Also, a second attempt is possible (after a week), but not advisable, and then there needs is be more oxygen, which probably they don't have.

Its sounds very much like they have a good enough weather window to go for the summit straight away. I don't know if Lorenzo intends to do a recording from the summit - might be too much to ask! But he'll have at least a stills camera and we should get some photos when he's back to ABC.
