Packing up Base Camp

This is Diana again. The team spent the day packing up Base Camp, which includes the computers, modems and phones. They will leave in the morning to spend 3 days hiking 40 miles to Lukla where they will catch a flight back to Kathmandu. It has been snowing for the past several days. They will need clear weather to fly out of Lukla. If you were following the blog when Ben talked about flying into the Lukla airstrip, you will understand why prayers would be helpful for clear weather. When Ben returns to Kathmandu, he will post another blog. And then he will be on his way home!!!! Thank you all again for following along and for your prayers.

Good to hear you will be coming home soon- praying for good weather so you can have a safe take off.
Diana- sorry things were so crazy the day you stopped in, I would love to see you soon. let me know when you have a free day.
Just so excited that you will all be together again soon.
Alexander is so lucky to have such a strong family full of love and support.

Ben, I looked for my entry in the "Guess The Summit Date Contest" to see if I won, but alas, I did not. However, after a quick review of the other entries, I think your other bro-in-law won!
