Where Lucille has been for the past 24 hours.

I am just now sitting down reading all the comments that everyone posted and I am overwhelmed. Several weeks ago Lorraine and Ted prepared and sent a care package to base camp with Mike who delivered it while I was on my summit push, and included in the package along with brand new underwear and other assorted goodies was a copy of all the comments that had been posted on the blog until April 18th (the day Mike left for Nepal). I read all those comments when I returned to base camp using up quite a few tissues!!! Lorraine had also texted me quite a few comments in the week leading up to the summit, so tissues required on a daily basis.....but now that I sit down and read them ALL.....and yes it has taken me quite some time to read them all, I have to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who read the blog, and to those who took the time to comment. They are a keepsake of an unforgettable experience, making it that much richer.

Congrats on summiting!
I've been reading your blog since I saw the article in the paper - as an exercise specialist - your training regime was quite fascinating to me before you left!
I hope to do the Everest Base Camp Trek sometime in the next 2 years, so i get so excited to read about other peoples adventures in the area!

Hi Lucille! I am still following your blogging, and also that of Peak Freaks re your other team mates- it is beginning to sound like not everyone is going to make it to the top due to the rapidly closing windows of opportunity. I am so glad for you that you were able to make it when you did. Love you. Annette

I also have been reading your blog since the Edmonton Journal article. I found it fascinating and truly inspiring. I also had the priviledge to hear Mark Inglis speak on his adventure to the summit along with some fantastic photos. Congratulations on your summit! I hope to be able to see you speak.

Congratulations Lucille - so happy for you that you made it up AND back down. I look forward to hearing more about your adventure. What is next - a trip to the moon? Mars? Whatever you do, enjoy the ride.
