Well done Fiona and Paul! I think what you have achieved already is amazing. I have been away and have had a roller-coaster ride catching up with your progress. Firstly, while it must seem like a long time ago,I was very sad to read of the deaths of the Sherpas and feel for their loss throughout the climbing and sherpa communities. I am wishing safe progress for every-one. The photos are fantastic and your descriptions of day to day activites and your thoughts make me feel very much part of your adventure. You seem so strong dealing with everything. Keep well and safe and sleep soundly. cheers,

Hi Fi and Paul,
We have been following your news everyday, and are glad to see that you have made it to Camp 2 and that you are both safe and sound. Paul, hope you keep feeling better and I was really surprised to see the floor of the cooking tent was just snow! Fi, we have bucketloads of chocolate Easter Eggs that are all yours when you get back :-)

By the way, we have just moved into your old neighbourhood in Clifton Hill and are loving the village atmosphere here and having a back yard. We'll have you over for a barbie when you get back.
Stay safe,
xx Sammie and Nick

Well done guys, once again you have inspired Luke and I to walk to Kate & Danny's! Well almost, but then it got dark and Home and Away was on. We love reading the updates every night/morning. We nearly got a puppy today...but think he might be a bit big so will keep looking.

Living vicariously through you both as I take care of my little Tara Luanne.

Congrats!!! Your achievement is already stellar and i know from personal experience that climbing with the one you love is an experience all in itself! Enjoy. These are memories you two will share together forever!

Climb on! Stay safe.
