Steve House, Vince Anderson and Marko Prezelj, Makalu 2008: All Settled in Base Camp
No call from Hi, We are all settled in base camp now. All of our equipment finally arrived. We are at 18,500 ft. Steve is still ill with a cough though seems to be getting better. Marko and I hiked up a small peak behind camp that is about 20,500 ft. We will continue to acclimatize and just take it easy for the next few weeks until we are ready to try our route. The weather has been ok but we are getting afternoon cloud build up. Today we all hiked to camp 1 on the normal route. Regards, Vince

Get better soon Steve.
