Sam, Charlie and Chris

Randy King took this image of Charlie, Sam Wick and Chris Olson at Camp Schurman on July 1, 2005. The Wentzel group ended up exhausted on the summit with no equipment to spend the night. A helicopter dropped survival gear on the top of the mountain and Chris and Sam climbed up in the late evening from Camp Schurman, in bitter wind conditions, to ensure their safety. Charlie, climbed up to the group from Camp Muir SOLO and all three walked the party and gear down the next day. The photo captures them as they arrived at Camp Schurman after saving lives and a long night on the mountain.

It's either too late at night or too early in the morning to write this but was afraid I wouldn't get to it if not now.

We would like to thank all of you that have particpated in making this blog site happen. I have seen and spoken with many of Charlie's friends for the first time in the last week. We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and the insights shared by all of you about my adult son.

Love to you all
John (and Mary) Borgh
