Back to Kathmandu!

Costa Mesa, Ca.
October 17, 2015

Dear Family & Friends:

I leave for Nepal tonight.

The entire team is really excited about this First Ascent expedition.

I have added a link to my website titled “Burke-Khang 2015.“ The link has 3 drop-downs: “Helicopter recon,” “Where’s Bill?” and “Photos & Video.” The Helicopter recon link takes you to the video and photos from my April helicopter reconnaissance of Burke-Khang. The Where’s Bill? link allows you to track the exact location of the team during the expedition. The Photos and Video link has photos of the mountain and the team.

Check out our summit flag below.

Thanks so much for all of the love and support you have sent our way.
