We have contact!

Hello all... I just talked very briefly with Chuck - he borrowed a satellite phone from a guided climb. Everyone is feeling good. They are at the 11,000 camp right now; carried to 14,000 yesterday and will move to 14,000 camp tomorrow. They are a little behind the intenerary due to being held in base camp for two days on account of rain. Weather now is looking good and if it holds they are planning to summit in six to seven days. They had no cell (digital) service at 14 yesterday. Only the old analog phones and satelitte phones had service so our future communication may continue to be spotty. Sounds like all are in good humor and looking good for summit. He wanted me to post for you all as soon as I got off the phone!

Take care...
Kerry

Good luck to all in reaching the summit! Hope everyone is staying warm and dry! There is an old Native Alaskan legend that if you say "Denali" three times fast while you're on the summit a magic otter will appear in the clouds and grant you one wish. Think about that one. Just wish to get down safetly and for Paris to get out of jail soon. Well, I guess that's two wishes. But seriously, we're all thinking good thoughts for your safe return. And if Jim could get a picture of the magic otter for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Bonnie, Thank you so much for mentioning Paris. I know she has been on everyone's mind, and how we are all wishing for her safe return.

Denali! Denali! Denali!
