Dan Mazur
Dear EverestNews.com, Our team is complete now with today’s’ arrivals. We are –

 

 

Dan Mazur – Leader                USA

Jay Reilly – Leader                   Australia

Rex Dougherty             USA

Daniel Marino                           Australia

Kirsti Samson                           UK

Richard Lees                            UK

Steve Hysko                             USA

Mick Long                               Ireland

Aiden Forde                             Ireland

Ray Dolamore                          UK

Bridgette Rossiter O’Flynn        Ireland

Marion Joncheres                     France

Phil Aikman                              UK

It was great to catch up with Kirsti and Mick! Kirsti climbed on Ama Dablam in 2003 and Mick reached the summit with us on Ama Dablam in 2002.

We now have an extremely busy 24 hrs ahead, as we finalize our packing and equipment preparations. Member equipment needs to be checked. Staff equipment needs to be checked. This is an important step, as we never send staff to altitude without proper gear. Without them, our expedition would not succeed – therefore, staff safety is of paramount concern. We sent approx 1700kgs of food and equipment to Lukla today, with another 1000kg to fly with us tomorrow!

Our medical kits have been checked and replenished, our Gammow Bag has been tested, and emergency oxygen equipment has been tested.

Our Climbing Sherpa list has been finalized. They are –

Jangbu Sherpa

Lakpah Sherpa

Gyalu Sherpa

Shera Sherpa

Tenzing Sherpa

Phurba Tamang

Maya Sherpa

Our other Sherpani, Lakpa, whom I mentioned last dispatch has not shown up, and therefore won’t be on our expedition.

We are off to the famous KC’s restaurant for our Welcome Dinner with all the members and Leaders.

The next dispatch will be sent from the mighty Khumbu Valley!

Thank you very much for reading, from Jay Reilly and all of us at Summitclimb.com
