"Hi, it's Mike. First of all, Tad says hi as well. We've moved to an afternoon/night schedule. We're prepping to head up to Camp 2 and did a cache at 10,200'. It is windy up higher on the mountain, but it is okay for us now since we are down lower.
Dustin says hi and good luck to his mom who is in Singapore right now. I'd like to say hi to my parents and hope they are enjoying the beautiful Northeast spring weather.
In general, we are doing really well. I want to encourage our fans and friends to post comments on the blog, because we really want to hear how everyone else is doing out there.
That's it for now, we'll talk to you again soon."
Mike then called back at 2:15 with more:
"Peter says hi to Julia; Mark says hi to his sponsers (his family) Ellen, Karen and Miranda; Tad says hi to Whitney and says 'Booyakasha!'; and Jim says hi to Mom; Dave M says hello to Sarah.
I also have a riddle for everyone - this was told to me from my dad - 'What does a man do on two legs, a woman do sitting down, and a dog do on three legs? - and keep your mind out of the gutter!' I'll give the answer in tomorrow's dispatch.
That's it for now, and I'll talk to you again soon!"
