When I reported not to worry
about the team's luggage . . . well, worry! While the rest of the team has
headed on to Lukla, base camp manager, Roger Coffey, is still in Katmandu
waiting on a piece of luggage that belongs to Doug Tumminello.
Roger said that he is hoping that the final piece of baggage will arrive no
later than tomorrow so he can catch the rest of the team in Lukla. There is a
slight glitch in these high hopes, however. In the morning, a three day
international strike will begin and hopes of getting business taken care of
during the strike period looks pretty grim.
Even in the midst of this fiasco, Roger remains delightfully positive. He said
that while he feels anxious that he will continue to be persistent in
rectifying this situation.
For now, Roger will wait in Katmandu and hope that the strikes won't cause too
much distress. "Things are getting pretty interesting here . . . I'm just
gonna take it all in, and hopefully will be getting out of here some time
tomorrow," said Coffey.
