Well, I can't believe it but I did it! Day before yesterday we made it to Kala Pattar at 18,433 feet (higher than base camp and camp 1 on Everest) our highest goal altitude-wise. And yesterday we hit our final goal which was our most challenging mentally of Everest Base Camp. It was amazing to have been in a place at the base of the Khumbu Ice fall where so many great people have been and continue to go. I feel very proud and relieved at the same time. On our way down we spent time in Gorak Shep and I left our Children's Brain Tumor/LIMA sign there on the wall in the Tea House so other ambitious trekkers will see that we raised over $350,000 for the cause around climbing a piece of a great mountain to conquer cancer. Hopefully we will inspire others to combine their dreams with supporting a cause like ours. Pictures to come once I am in a place where I can deliver them but it may not be until I am back stateside. Stay tuned for the conclusion of the journey as well.
