Lead Guide Angela Seidling called at 4:30pm on Saturday, June 5th:

Hi! This is Angela calling from Camp 3
. Got a bunch of new snow over night, and there have been avalanches last night and this morning, so we've been waiting patiently for things to settle down. But it’s been a lovely afternoon! We’re still just waiting for that chance to move up.

Our first message is from Bob who says, "Happy birthday Mom. Mom, I love you!

Carol says, "I'm having the time of my life and I'm making new friends. I hope my friends and colleagues are having as much fun as I am."

Joan Says, "I love all my family," and wants to say three words in Catalan [Angela tried to spell this out - and we could here Juan spelling it in the background, bit it was extremely difficult to understand. They best we heard it was as follows] eptons a eots

That's the news. We'll call again before too long!

Thanks for the birthday message. I pray it won't be long before you are standing on the top of North America. The trip to Georgia was great. I love you, too.

You said you would be back last year and here you are! I'll keep you in my thoughts as you get closer to your final push. You can do it my friend! I'll have a patch with 2009 scratched out and 2010 in its place when you return.
Best Regards,
Patrick Gallaher
