The past one month has been hectic – coordinating with
Beijing on paperwork for Everest permit, coordinating with Kathmandu agent
on logistics and equipment, preparing my own equipment, helping team members
with their equipment, liasing with sponsors, preparing for the media launch
tomorrow, finding the time to train and last but not least, finding the time
to spend with my kids. When I step onto the plane in 2 days’ time, I can
finally put all these preparations behind and look forward to the
fascinating journey ahead.
This has been my life for the past 15 years. But I keep
forgetting how much work it takes to launch a major expedition. So it’s good
to have short memory.
Welcome to the start of another exciting adventure. I
hope to share and interactive with you more as we progress. I can’t wait to
see the awesome north face of Everest and experience the mystical shangri-la
