things are just about to get started. It's four something in the morning and
we are at our hotel loading trucks and buses for the trip to the airport. I'm
glad to be in the office writing this dispatch rather than dealing with the
baggage chaos outside. I don't know how many tons of gear our expedition has,
but we'll hire over 100 yaks to carry all of it to Base Camp. Our group is
quite a sight. We have almost 50 people including climbing members, trekkers,
Sherpas, and staff. We are very anxious to get started with our
trek/climb. Last night we had our last super before heading into the Khumbu,
and we filled-up on steaks and beer. This morning we will fly to Lulka, and
trek a few hours to the village of Phakding. We expect to arrive in Everest
Basecamp on April 13th. More soon....Mark Merwin
