21 May: Team Checks In

Doug just called home - very tired and out of breath but totally psyched that they had a successful Everest summit. He said they were close to Camp 4 where they would stay overnight and then I believe be back down to Camp II in about 2 days. It was great to hear his voice. He said they took a lot of pics on the way up (like at the Hillary Step) and of course at the top. He said Willie was up top first and then he, Francisco and Tendi reached the top a little before sunrise. All for now...
