Base camp day 1 ... still snowing

June 30, 2018

Still snowing!  Supposedly you can see K2 from here, but I don't believe it yet.  Occasionally the clouds clear and I can see a wall of rock opposite camp but that's all.

We've made some improvements to camp, and I'm excited to move to a better tent as soon as it dries.  To pass the time I'm continuing my pant drying project.   Things actually are drying in my tent, my watch says that it's 80 degrees in here.  I've created a process of hanging things based on their dryness and immediacy of use.  When things get relatively dry, I put them on to dry them the rest of the way, then slide everything on the line down, and add another item to hang.  

It's a very exciting project.
