(...with apologies, I overlooked this message so it is out of order.)

Guide Andrew Yasso called on May 25th at 9:22pm PST with the following dispatch: Today was an excellent day we got to get intimately knowledgeable of our tents. Our tents have four pockets, two doors one at the front and one at the back. A good area at the front for cooking. If you don’t get it by now we spent a lot of time in our tents today. The wind is blowing pretty hard and drifting the snow around. We just focused on keeping eating right, drinking lots of water and keeping our mental spirits high. The forecast is looking about the same for the next few days. We may or may not get an attempt at the summit but we are trying our best to keep dry and stay positive while we wait for our shot at it.

-On a personal note I’d like to congratulate Natasha for her job offer at Harvard. Way to go!
