Everest - God Speed

Thoughts over the weekend and this morning are very much with the souls clinging to the side of Everest after the avalanche which tore down the hill and over the Khumba ice fall and Base Camp leaving climbers stranded above. I read that small helicopters are currently evacuating Camps 1 & 2, in shuttles, two climbers at a time. Thoughts too are with the all the kids out there doing high level treks in the region. I've been a parent waiting for a telephone call for good or bad news following an event, and after clinging to the side of the hill, its the second worse place in the world to be.

God Speed.
