On Our Way!

In Namche Bazaar now. The whole team is here after a great hike today up to
Khumjung Village just above Namche. To catchup, we flew in on schedule, sort
of. Only a 6 hour wait in the airport on the 8th trying to fly in. That's
Nepal, hurry up and wait! So we have quite a team, actually 2 teams here
now. The climbing team- Cindy Abbott, Vivian Rigney, Ania Lichota, Paul and
Denise Fejtk, also Bill Allen and myself. And the trekking team- Linda
Unwin, Julia Bell, Izabela Spero, Jona Price and Robin McGregor. Completely
fun group! We are definitely having a blast on the first couple days of our
trek into Everest Base Camp. All our equipment and supplies are now in Base
Camp with our Sherpa team. Enjoying this afternoon in the Everest Bakery.
Internet, lattes and good friends! We will now be posting regular reports
along the way. Scott Woolums reporting from Namche, Nepal.

Off to Lukla!

Tomorrow morning we are scheduled to fly into Lukla. Everyone is excited to
get out on the trek at this point after months of preparations and training.
Enjoyed a huge dinner out at the Roadhouse, a local favorite. Today we were
issued with our Everest expedition permit and an Liaison Officer. Always
interesting to meet the Minister of Tourisim for Nepal! So off we go! Scott
reporting from Kathmandu!

Enjoying Kathmandu...

Namaste from Kathmandu! Scott here, starting our live Everest reports. We
will be posting reports as often as possible so check back for the most up
to date news following our teams progress. Life is dusty, exotic and busy
right now. Adjusting to an 11 hour time change, sorting lots of gear and
bags, double checking electronics, packing barrels. It never stops here.
Lots of friends to catch up with and going over hundreds of details before
we go into Everest. Its all fun but quite busy. Thanks for following the:
Mountain Trip Everest 2010 Expedition Reports!
