Advanced Base Camp

Just heard from Bill, although it was a very quick call since he was on a borrowed satellite phone. They are at Advanced Base Camp, and will be trekking to the North Col in the next two days. Unfortunately, their generator blew, and they won't have any access to any means of communication, or Internet. I'll continue to update the blog as I hear from Bill each time.
Thanks
Susan Fisher

  3. Megan- Thanks for the insight. I was a bit worried when Bill said they didn't have a generator. Add to that, no satellite phone because of the incorrect sim card. What a mess! Ah well, I guess that is life on Everest. The good news is that Bill sounds well. I think he just wishes he had better access to communication.
