Tomorrow, we’re leaving basecamp (pictured here at an elevation of 17,000’/5181m)- our comfy home for the past week. Basecamp here on the north side of Everest/Chomolungma is higher than any permanent human habitation, so it’s kind of mind-blowing to think we’re going to 19,000’ (interim camp) and then 21,500 (advanced basecamp) to spend multiple nights. I am grateful for all the time we put in the @hypoxico tent before we came and I’m excited and nervous to make our way up the mountain and get into the snow and ice. Thank you for all the kind words, thoughts and prayers! I am feeling all the good vibes you’re sending! #climbforequality #everest2019
