Hoping to Get Lucky and Go For the Top

Dave at the South Col of Mt. Everest and now its quarter to five in the evening. Yeah, we’ve been sitting in that snow storm all day but things are starting to go our way or as we were hoping. The clouds have dropped down below us now we are in sunshine we got blue sky up above so that was stage one. We got higher winds now we need those winds to calm down but we are counting on that happening this evening. Of course this is an angst filled period, we passed on going to the top this morning, conditions weren’t right for us, it turned out right for others. We sure hope we get out shot on our terms but we don’t know that’s going to happen. We’d sure like our shot, we feel like we’ve worked hard for months, and we’ve followed all on our own rules to get strong and acclimatized and get ready for this thing. But now it just comes to whether we get lucky this evening or not, and that’s an uncomfortable feeling. We are ready to get lucky.
