Settling in at Base Camp - first photo

By @

From Joel Streed, Mayo Clinic News Network

[This was Joel's quick initial message. His formal dispatches will follow.]

The team is settling into base camp. Half the team arrived last night and we are awaiting the other half any time. Last night was a little “unrestful.” Had to get used to the sounds of rockfalls and avalanches. Nothing to worry about but still a little unsettling! Also getting used to the cold…lots of clothes and sleeping bag pulled up tight last night. Tomorrow we hope to start testing. I have video of the trek from Pheriche to Laboche..trying to upload and watching the progress bar creep across the screen.... here's a post from Nat Geo about the avalanche. http://bit.ly/Kime5B
