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
kits have been checked and replenished, our Gammow Bag has been tested, and
emergency oxygen equipment has been tested.
Climbing Sherpa list has been finalized. They are –
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
dispatch will be sent from the mighty Khumbu Valley!
Thank you very much for
