Ama Dablam Expedition 11/13/08 dispatch

Hey this is Seth from Camp 1 on Novem­ber 13th call­ing in with the dai­ly dispatch!

We had a huge day today! Tonight we are sleep­ing high at Camp One at 5,600 meters. The team climbed up from Base Camp at 4,600 meters and got up here at Camp one around 3:45pm. We had pret­ty full packs and our moun­tain boots on as we moved a lot of our gear to set our­selves up for our sum­mit ascent. The team is doing great; every­one moved well today! We were tak­ing a slow­ly but sure­ly pace, Bis­taarai, Bis­taarai” as the Nepali say.

Now we are tuck­ing our­selves into bed for an ear­ly din­ner and a long nights rest. We are doing good and feel­ing good! Are din­ner has just arrived, so we are going to eat and go to sleep. I will try to call tomor­row and let you know how our day goes. Wish us luck and I hope that all of you back home are enjoy­ing the full moon like we are here! This is the first day of Mani Rim­du, so it’s a pret­ty excit­ing day here in the Khum­bu. So we are enjoy­ing the cel­e­bra­tion and wait­ing for the moon to rise. Over and out!
