Tomorrow we are off to Tingri and then on to base camp in two days. We are all so anxious to get started climbing and it won't be much longer now. The team is getting to know each other better as the days go by and everyone is fitting in well together. It's a great group. I'll sign off for now and my next report will be from the Mountain.
