    I wanted to wish the team the very best of luck, in person, when I was making an attempt to trek to base camp, a couple of weeks ago. I have been following Garrett since I met him in Kathmandu, last November.
    This is a truly amazing achievement, to get so many guys up to the top, and has to be some sort of record.
    Safe travels down and back home.
    Congratulations.
