At Mt. Everest Base Camp – Surviving Avalanche

April 28, 2012

Mayo Clinic Team Setting up at Mt. Everest Base Camp One

Update from Mayo Clinic News Network Reporter Joel Streed at Mt. Everest Base Camp - "The team is settling into base camp. Half the team arrived last night and 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."
