  Everest 2006 Team No Limits: Team No Limits, Dr. Rigsby, Visits Sherpa families and heads home


After leaving Base Camp, Larry Rigsby, member of Team No limits, began his trek thru the Khumbu Valley. Larry's trek took five days and covered approximately forty to fifty miles - as he visited several villages on his way to his ultimate destination, the village of Thame. While in Thame, Larry reported a great visit with Apa Sherpa's wife and family. In addition, Larry had the opportunity to visit with some of the family of other Sherpas from Team No Limits. Larry also met Passang Neru as well as some of his family. Passang Neru was the Sherpa who was badly injured in the Icefall tragedy.

Larry met with family members of the two Sherpas, Lhakpa Tseri and Dawa Temba, who were killed in the Icefall. He had the pleasure of meeting Lhakpa Tseri's wife and daughter as well as Dawa Temba's parents. Larry said this was a heart warming and healing experience. Larry has a genuine love for the Sherpa people and said he felt most honored to spend time in their village. Their warm and sincere welcome confirmed once again to Larry what great people they are. Larry said that he is very excited about the Memorial Foundation that is being established to provide financial support to the families of Lhakpa Tseri and Dawa Temba.

In Katmandu, Larry and Matt were reunited and spent the last days of this unforgettable journey together. Both Larry and Matt are expected to arrive back to their home towns today!

Talk to you soon,
Roger Coffey, TNL - Base Camp Manager
