Rest Time in Tingri-Getting Ready For a Summit May 7, 2014 | Mountaineering, Uncategorized | 12 comments May 7, 2014 Click here to listen to new audio report 12 Comments Edd Ruskowitz on May 7, 2014 at 8:54 pm You sound good, Bill. Nothing makes you feel better than a shower, shave and oxygenated blood. If it weren’t for the big REI sale coming up I might’ve joined you. 😉 Be safe. Reply Elaine Roberts on May 7, 2014 at 9:08 pm Saddleback Kids staff are praying for you! We look forward to hearing the insights God gives you from this climb. Reply Jack Stern on May 7, 2014 at 10:43 pm Hi Bill, I have been really inspired to see how you have carried on with your team, in spite of what has happened to many of the sherpas and their families. I am also very proud of you for doing what you love. I’m 67 now and continue to travel around the world. It’s so very exciting to see what you have accomplished. I hope to see you when you return at the first available Adventurer’s Club meetings. God Go With You, Jack Stern Reply Marian Campbell on May 8, 2014 at 1:44 am Sounds good. I marked the approx. summit dates on my calender. Very exciting! Good luck, and God bless. Stay safe! Reply Julian Buitrago on May 8, 2014 at 6:58 am Bill we are puling and praying for you!

Reply shole Nassei on May 8, 2014 at 7:07 am Simple pleasures we take for granted:) Have an awesome rest and can’t wait to hear back. YOU GO BILL… Reply Richard Dryer on May 8, 2014 at 7:30 am Namaste Bill, Managing all the details of the pre-climb (showering, shaving, washing clothes, packing extra socks…) will prepare you and Migma for the summit push. Mike Fagan has given you a window to climb in harmony with existing and changing conditions. Our prayers are that everything remains manageable. Health and climbing blessings! Rick Reply Don on May 8, 2014 at 10:56 am Bill~ We are all now emotionally acclimated and ready to cheer you on to the summit. Thanks for taking us all along for the climb. Reply John Dahlem on May 8, 2014 at 11:33 am Bill….sounds great and enjoy the sauna in Tingri and keep in front of those dogs. Climbing starts now and I know you will be ready when they “ring the bell!” Hope the weather cooperates, get those boot warmers out and “one step at a time!!!!” John 🙂 Reply Paul G. Colaneri on May 8, 2014 at 1:10 pm Hi Bill. I know the Second Step is daunting, and I believe there is a difficult and risky traverse beneath the step. Exposed summit ridge, the cold, a rock climb beneath the summit. Yet you’re handling all this with equanimity. Anyone doing this hill at any age is extraordinary. I need to know what makes you tick as I would like to follow in your footsteps. But I’ll let you unpack first.
