After my shower I realized that my uncombed hair is growing long enough to almost be dreads. This shouldn't be a surprised since I haven't combed my hair since April 1. When I get to Kathmandu I'll comb it out and post a picture of my 'fro. This should be quite interesting.

Several really good weather reports seem to floating around today, which is inducing summit plans around base camp. Kame, Pemba and I decided that we would leave base camp for our summit push on May 16th. A couple teams left for their summit rotation today and many others will be leaving in the next few days. And just like that base camp is buzzing with summit plans.
