Everest Base Camp 2011 • 11/1/2011 2:35:57 AM SUMMIT SUCCESS (Trish Fryer)
Hi. This is Trish Fryer from Summits of Hope. It's been a long day, six hours and three quarters, but I am proud to say (we are) one united team with one goal and we are standing at the base camp of Mount Everest at 17,400 (feet). The views on the way up have been stunning any which way you look. The winds and snow are coming in now so it's pretty cold up here. I'd like to thank all the friends and family that have helped these incredible climbers reach their goal. Also I'd like to thank our sponsors Ice Breaker and North Face for keeping us warm. And to all my friends and family, thanks for always supporting me. I couldn't have accomplished what I have in life without you guys. Mom and dad, I love you. Ron, this is the best birthday present ever. The only thing that could top it up is if you were standing here beside me. But you're here in spirit. I love you. Mackenzie, Bailey, Chase thank you for letting mommy go away for three weeks to help support the children at BC Children's Hospital. I love and miss you dearly, and the best part - I'm on my journey back home. With that, I'll be signing out. We're just about to take some photos, then we have a two hour slug back to Gorakshep where we'll sleep tonight. Thanks everyone for all your support. Bye.
