Denali Team 4: May 20 to June 9 - Dispatch # 4

Guides: Paul Ivaska, Jeremy Allyn, Paul Rachele

Climbers: Manish Kumar (New York), Brian Burkholder (MIssissippi), Jeff Smith (UK), Roland Thomas (UK), Michael Palij (UK), Jane Amies (UK), Greg Umbach (Canada), Lloyd Cook (Canada)

Paul Ivaska called at 4:18 Alaska time with the following update:

"Greetings everyone!  We just arrived at Camp 2 and established camp.  Everyone is doing very well.  Tomorrow we'll do a back carry.  We got the cache in pretty high, so we're not going to have to drop down very far to retrieve it and bring the supplies here to Camp 2.  As a result, tomorrow will almost be like a rest day.  It will be a good day, no doubt about it.

Here are some messages for folks back home:

Roland says, 'Hi Mum!'

Lloyd says, 'Love and peace to Ivy, my three girls, and all family and friends following me.'

Jane says, 'Hi mom - so far so good.  Lots of love, hugs, and kisses.'

That's it for now.  We'll keep you posted on how we are doing.  Ok, bye for now."
