All flights delayed due to weather

APRIL FOOLS! We left our hotel at 5:30 this morning, checked in at the domestic terminal, and was on the plane at 6:30. The flight in to Lukla went great and we are ready to hit the trail toward Everest Basecamp. We will lodge this evening in Phakding at our Sirdar's guestlodge. Tomorrow we will head to Namche Bazaar and I hope to be able to attach photos there. The computer I am on is not working properly. C'est la vie. Oh boy! Oh boy! It's really happening.

Every journey begins with a first step, although this is not your first I see it marks an important milestone along the way.

Here's to adventure! Here's to journeys! Here's to taking the path less traveled! Here's to being shaped and changed! Here's to God who refines us one step at a time. Here's to your next step in your journey.

Cheers Brother Ben.

Hey Son,
Hope everything go well with you. I am
praying that God will give you feet
life hinds feet, that you may set upon
high places. I love you much and go for it.

Good attempt at an April Fools - I knew you had to try. I had checked for a dispatch from Phil so I knew you were on your way! Yipee!

Love you tons,
