Live on Everest

Update from Chinese Base Camp

The team has descended from the higher camps back to Chinese base camp.  We had a great hike back down and this is totally part of the operation and the acclimatization process. 

Everyone is in great spirits and doing well.  We’ll be down here for a few days resting , eating lots and waiting patiently for our window of opportunity.  Some of our Brazilian friends coming up to base camp to meet us and we are excited to see them.  Jordan is working on his homework and finishing up some algebra. 

At this point, it’s all about the weather. 

The next move is the “big one”. 

Stay tuned…

    Wishing you good health and good luck. Praying for great weather and your safety. I have read a lot of books about Everest and it sounds like an enormous challenge. I saw the PBS special a few years ago and Everest is WAY TOO COLD for me. Sending LOVE and good thoughts your way. Liz Lowe

    YEA!!!! I just love your Spot tracking and check-ins and that Map with the embedding pictures too – I can not wait to check in and see the next “BIG” move. I know your weather window will be great it fits with your trip so far. It is so fun to follow your trip reading the comments and well wishes from your supporters at home and all your new friends, Your team the absolute BEST, Your Sherpa’s I love them, your new contacts and connections with other climbing teams WOW. You’ve dreamed and desired this climb, you’ve worked hard to prepare physically and mentally, your geared up … now just eat them out of tent and mountain and before you know it the window will be perfect and I’ll be happily cheering your summit to Mt. Everest.

    Hello Team Jordan! We are so glad to hear you are all happy, healthy and well! Today is mother’s day and my five year old little boy is sitting here with me, totally enthrawled with the adveturous update on team Jordan. We are sitting here with the lap top, eating breakfast together and discussing mountaineering and Everest. (I couldn’t ask for a better mother’s day morning!) My son, “Reed” had one question for Jordan. He would like to know if he could please describe the view from the top of Everest once he gets there. We also would like to know how many people can stand on the summit at once. Thank you for your continued adventure and inspiration. Remember….once your at the top, your only half way there….please be safe and cautious on your decent! We are praying for you all! What an amazing exeperience for all of you. You are all truly blessed to have this opportunity. Treasure each moment, as I am sure you will. :) !!- From your biggest and youngest of fans…-Angela and Reed Garner -Kutztown, Pa
