Hi Everyone, I thought we’d give a quick update. We are in Kathmandu, excited about heading off for another Everest expedition!
It is very nice to be back, and springtime in Kathmandu is extra exciting as it is a time to see lots of friends who are congregating here for the pre-monsoon climbing season. Kathmandu is the same as always, full of sights and sounds that assail the senses. As exciting as the city is, we are also enjoying relaxing here at the Yak and Yeti hotel. It is a small oasis within the seemingly utter chaos outside!
We are very busy finalizing preparations for our expedition, and have lots of projects going on at the moment, but we will keep you up to date throughout our trek into the Khumbu region and all the way to the summit and back!
So far Gregg is here with his partner Debbie, Newall with his friend Diane, and my fellow guide Bill Allen. We’re expecting Ephi, Chris and Neil to arrive this afternoon to complete our team.
