Another fun rest day in Lobuche Base Camp. Our acclimatization hike was a bit shorter today, just 500 vertical up a ridge that runs from LBC up towards High Camp, but less direct than the way we went yesterday. Great views from up there!
We watched a movie in the dining tent, World Police. I do NOT recommend this for audiences that include children, the infirm, or anyone with a sense of decency. In this context, it was fun.
I seem to be acclimatizing well, no signs or symptoms of AMS. Ours is a strong team, with a great attitude and skills. We are having fun.
Many of us, including me, have a runny nose and mild cough related to the dry cold air. A mild hassle.
Plan is to move to Everest Base Camp (EBC) tomorrow. We are looking forward to getting there, both for its enhanced creature comforts and because of the progress that this represents… the approach trek will be over!
Phrase of the day: “You can take our dignity, you can take our freedom… but you can never take OUR MUCUS!”
