Well finally the time is about here. Gina and her team have begun their summit push. Gina called me from Camp 2 last night. She will spend another night in Camp 2, before heading up to Camp 3. They might spend 2 nights in Camp 3, before heading up to Camp 4 at the South Col. Teams usually only spend one half a night at Camp 4, getting what little sleep they are able to at that altitude, before heading to the summit. So right now, tentatively, they are looking at summitting on the 21st, which would actually be Tuesday night for us here in North and Central America.

The weather forecasts are good for their summit attempt so far. I've been checking wind speeds at this website http://www.meteoexploration.com/mountain/forecasts.html anything below 40kmph is good. Also check the Project Himalaya website dispatches at http://www.project-himalaya.com/dispatches/2008/latest.html .

Gina is feeling good and sounds good. She no longer seems to be troubled by the cough that was slowing her down last month. Her back still hurts, but she will tough it out as much as she can, I know.

I'll try to keep everyone updated as best I can.

Mike
