Update from Keith Cowing:
Satellite call from Scott Parazynski:
"We had a great rotation down from Camp 3 (altitude 7,470 meters - 24,500 feet). We got back yesterday. We're back here for several day's rest - and we're hiking around to stay fit.
We're now waiting for camp to be set up on the South Col - Camp 4 (7,920 meters - 26,000 feet) and some fixed lines towards the summit.
We're a bit uncertain when the summit window will open - probably some time after 22nd.
I feel great and am fully acclimatized. feel great. Being at Camp 3 at 24,000 feet felt super. Life is going well. I had a fantastic visit with my friends from the NASA Trek team. I can't tell you how much that meant to me."
More pictures and updates on Everest Expedition 2008 are coming soon.
