Team Jordan Romero Calls from Chinese Base Camp En Route to 29,029′ Peak of Mt. Everest

Jordan, reading at base camp; he may be doing some school work, as he is on independent study for his eighth grade classes at BBMS.

The amazing adventures of Team Jordan Romero continue, as the trio of 13-year-old Jordan Romero, his dad Paul Romero and Karen Lundgren are making progress in their trek to summit Mt. Everest, the tallest peak in the world at 29,029’. Though receipt of satellite phone transmissions from half-way across the world can be technically challenged, we did hear from Jordan last night, who left a message for you, his Big Bear friends and fans, with KBHR. In his voicemail from Chinese base camp on Mt. Everest, Jordan sounds exuberant, and says, “It is perfect weather so far and, man, I love it here! We have had amazing weather so far and this trip has gone smoothly.” Team Jordan Romero left Big Bear Lake for Nepal on April 5; reaching the peak of Mt. Everest will be the seventh of the world’s summits for the trio, who also plan to climb Mt. Vinson in Antarctica. For background on this adventure, see our story: ‘Thirteen-Year-Old Jordan Romero Readies for the Climb of His Life; Trio Departs for Mt. Everest on April 5.’
