8:30pm Bagdogra, India

Yeah! I just got to talk to Jason via the satellite phone. He sounded alittle tired but very excited about their trip. They had met up with Barap of Sikkim Holidays and he is a very nice. And yes all the luggage had made it. The weather has been nice and is a little rainy, but Jason is hoping in the morning he might see Kanchenjunga, the third-highest peak in the world from his hotel window. March 5th they will take 5 hour jeep transport to Gangtok. Thursday, March 6th they will take another jeep transport to Yuksam where they will be begin our trek into basecamp.

Everyone was feeling good but tired from the traveling.

Thank you for the updates. I'm living vicariously through Jason, as I'd love to visit India.

Be safe fellas!

Glad you are on the ground safely with your bags. I am shocked after the plane cancellations and all, they all found thier way there. Sweet. Can't wait to hear more.

Best of luck, Jason....don't inhale "too" deeply. You will appreciate the clean air of Los Alamos that much more when you return.
Allison, thanks for the updates....
