Carla and I made it home safely and just cleared customs after an uneventful trip that included the heli flight from base camp to Lukla, the crazy flight down from Lukla to Kathmandu, on to Bangkok and finally through Tokyo to Denver. It feels as though we’ve been traveling for days on end, which I suppose we have.
We’re extremely grateful to be home and for all of the love and support from friends, family, etc. It’s finally time to decompress a bit, let the events of the past few weeks sink-in, and begin again with fresh perspectives… but, first, it’s time to go pick-up our pup, Camden, for a proper welcome home!
Jim and Carla, Glad u r both back on terra firma. Appreciated your pics and blog of the good as well as devastating times. Congrats to u both on your engagement. Cheers, Bob and Kathy

Thanks, Bob & Kathy.
Glad you two are back safe and sound.
Thank you, Peggy.
Glad to hear you are both safe. Hope the early return did not interfere with Camden’s vacation plans!
Thanks, Mike. Camden was hesitant to give up his mountain retreat early, but after a lengthy belly rub he conceded…
so glad u made it!!!
Congratulations on your engagement!! I am so happy that you are home safe and sound.
Thanks for keeping us informed about your adventure. The devastation was very sad. Sorry you did not get to fulfill your dream!! Not yet anyway!! Mom tells me the wedding is in June. Is that correct? A new chapter in your lives. Happy you are home safe and sound. Love, Aunt Pat, Sarah and Ann
Thanks, Pat, Ann & Sarah (and family). Small, family-only ceremony will be held on July 1st.
So glad you and your beautiful fiancée are home. Have been following your Mount Everest adventures since Ben was with you, and have sent many positive oxygenated thoughts and prayers your way. Hope to meet you in person soon. Congrats on your engagement! Nicely done.
Thanks, Collene. Greatly appreciated. It’s certainly nice to be home.
