Mount Everest…here they come!
I spoke to Paul and Fiona a little while ago and they sound terrific. They have had plenty to drink, dinner (would you believe Mediterranean Chicken!) and a good rest.
They said the weather was good and the wind was dropping.
They have now decided that Fiona and Mingma will leave at 9p.m. (about 25 minutes from now!!) and Paul and Dasona will leave at 10 p.m.
I am spending the night in the Communications tent as the reception is better on the bigger 2 way. They will radio in as they go, probably as they stop to rest and so I will update as often as they do.
Thanks to everybody who sent those messages today – I know how special each and everyone of them are to Paul and Fiona and I loved hearing from you too.
All I can say is “stay glued” as we are so privileged to be able to share in history in the making!
John topped up my phone today (thanks J) so I can now keep going all night!
Cheers for now,
PS GOOD LUCK PAUL AND FIONA
