Today the team was kicking back at base camp, playing around with the drone, and generally resting up before the next rotation. Here’s Madison Mountaineering guide, Rob Smith with his recap of the day:
This is Rob [Smith] from Everest Base Camp. We’ve all had a nice day here today. Jim arrived up the trail so that’s the team all complete! Pretty nice rest day – folks taking it easy, doing some laundry, catching a shower, and this evening we had another fine meal from Deepak and then I gave a chat to everyone on an Axel Heiberg ski trip to the South Pole which was kinda same, same, but different; pictures of snow from Antarctica. But, it was all good and looking forward to another good day tomorrow.
Bye for now!
