are off to Van now. Could not get through on the net
last night. hope to have better luck in Van.
were on nationwide TV in Turkey last night around midnight!
Good show! Please tell me why you climb in one
sentence or less - no seriously the media has been
very gracious and supportive of the team and the good
causes that we are supporting. It was a fun show last
night. Hopefully we will have some pictures to send
still hot, 37 in the city yesterday - We will be stepping
back in time as we travel to the area where Mt. Ararat
is in this country. Right now we are literally
straddling the frontier of Asia and Europe. Today
we leave the west behind us.
This is the first group of climbers. A second group
will be arriving this weekend and meeting the first
group at Base camp.
