Hi Big Girl, aka Lynne,

You did not miss a big tent on the North Col last year.  that is new.  I remember Alex saying it will get better every year, including showers at ABC.

Say hello to Noel.  Boy, he is doing so well!!   and yes, tell him not to take off his gloves for a picture, during a storm.  don't forget the mission!

And Harry, thanks for the postings and pictures.  I'll post on the other site too.  Some of the pictures look pretty tough, if you know what I mean!

Chris, tell Lorenzo yes, I am listening to his blogs, and thanks for thinking of me.  Lorenzo is smart for taking his time.  That is what worked for me last year.  climb at your own pace.  This is one of the things that makes Alex and Harry's expeditions so good....climb at your own pace.  On the bottom half, climb with your buddies (whoever is climbing that day) and on the top half, climb with your Sherpa.  Optimal.  I talk about this at my 7summit talks.

Wow, this is already May.  Street sign:  Caution: Exciting Times Ahead

Hey Big Grrrl & Mountain John!

thanks for the compliments. Yes, we have upgraded our services again, the sauna and shower tent are now separated, we have 2 TV's with DVD players (though one player recently died) and we have a full service NC tent. Still have to find a name, suggestions?

It helps prevent a lot of AMS as our clients and Sherpas doe not have to start melting water (which can take hours) when arriving, so they can rehydrate immediately. Also food is readily available, for new energy.

See you on the SightonEverest blog?

Take care,
Best regards from BC (going back up tomorrow),

Harry

Hey Harry

Suggestions...Tavern on the Col or Fat Bastard's Bistro.
Or maybe FB HAC (Fat Bastardís High Altitude Club)?

Cheers
