Hi Paul and Fiona,

Congratulations on your ascent to C3. Well done. It is about 10 Deg C here during the day so we know what you are going through with the cold conditions....only joking :) Love, Dame & Beck

Hi Paul, Fiona & Mary

Congratulations to all three - P&F for reaching the giddy heights of Camp 3 (without oxygen) and M for reaching BC - fantastic personal achievements all round. The photos are so good it is easy to feel that if we just open our front door we would be there with you. Have a very safe return to BC and a wonderful family reunion.
Love, hugs & kisses to all
Jo & Leo
