This is Lisa, Bill’s daughter who does his posting for him. He is doing great and should be helicoptering into basecamp today. I am traveling so this post from March 11th is delayed a few days.
Audio Dispatch from March 11th
Good progress. The mountain will make the decision for you. You’ll do fine either way.
FYI, minus 103 wind chill predicted for Denali tomorrow.
My prayers are in every step you take Bill.
You are a “captive” of the mountain–and it determines the chosen course of action. Your insights are keen; a fresh snowfall adds an additional (new) dimension to further plans. Blessings.
Please Bill continue as you have learned to due so well ,press the boundaries,accept the challenge,
respect and enjoy all,and most importantly come back safely to all of us who love and respect you and your entire family.
