Today was even more laid back than yesterday. I spent most of the morning taking some pictures and hanging out and reading. 11am to 1pm the climbing team had a meeting and when through their climbing gear. After a lunch of salmon cakes, more hanging out and when the team started their ladder training, I set to work setting up the new cellular booster than had just arrived. Unfortunately after we got it all set up it proved to be as ineffective as the other one. Major bummer; this means no low cost 3G network connection. The team will be limited to a once a day BGAN satellite sent/receive of email. It also means that I will have to upload my dispatched via my sat phone and receiving email will be next to impossible. Hey what do you want? We are at Mount Everest Base Camp!!
Amazing diner of miso soup, peanut noodles, and... SUSHI! It was awesome. We are eating well. After diner Garrett set up the pico projector an we watched most of "Fargo" until the batteries in the laptop died.
It my tent now at 9:30pm with my big puffy down jacket on and my legs in my -40 degree down bag. Gloves are off to type and my finger tips are starting to get numb. Just took some nice long exposure photos of the lights in the many tents and the unbelievable stars. I will post one tomorrow.
Gotta go before frostbite sets in on the fingers. (just kidding).
