What a day, SWEETFCers!Kelly here with very exciting news!!At 5:25am on Friday morning in Nepal, Seth stood on the summit of Everest!!!! I got the briefest of phone calls from him, telling me he was there, and it was beautiful, and it was cold (very cold). I know he had to take his gloves and his oxygen mask off to call me, and it sounded like every second with those off was a second he was inviting frostbite into his experience, so our chat was very short. He’s still got a long way down before we can really start to party, but…. HOLY SH********!!!! SETH JUST SUMMITTED EVEREST!!!!!!Please keep those prayers and good vibes coming… I’m torn between a huge celebration and the sobering knowledge that his adventure really isn’t anywhere near over yet. I will, of course, update this blog again as soon as I hear from Seth from Camp IV or Camp III. Hopefully I’ll be able to fill you all in with a lot more detail then.
In the meantime… thanks for all your love and support!! I know we all share our feelings of pride and excitement right now as we bask in the glow of Seth’s remarkable accomplishment.
