I have to admit, I was terrible company during dinner tonight, because I couldn't tear myself away from my phone, watching their GPS track! Congrats all, can't wait to hear about it!
Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

I was USELESS last night as I watched their successful summit unfold. I was so annoyed I couldn't somehow also see some kind of live video feed!

Congratulations to all the team members! So happy to hear of their success. Now just wishing them a safe and uneventful finish to their trip....... filled with many well deserved celebration beers! =D>
