I've booked up as well. Never done anything like this before and with 14 weeks and 1 day to go, starting to get just a little bit excited !!
Hi, out walking most weekends mainly on Exmoor with the odd trip to Snowdonia. Also try and squeeze in some exercise during the week. Think the big unknown will be how i react to altitude. Currently starting to get kit up together and making use of the Xmas sales. Got a £200 North Face jacket for £120 ! How are things going for you ?
hi there nice to hear from you again....beginning to think we are the only 2 people going on this trip where are all the others!!!
got my jabs last week...hep A typhoid, diptheria ,tetanus and polio. Discussed the diamox ,think Ill give it a miss...too many conflicting stories. havent sorted out clothes yet, difficult deciding what to take think its going to be very cold early morn and evening but warm during the day. bought a new 25L air zone rucksack...frame sits off your back.Will fill it up this weekend and head off into the hills to try it out. Havent settled on boots either cant decide which ones to take,summer or winter ....or both!!! Lots still to do and not much time left....How are you getting on ? you sound a bit more organized!!!
Hi MimC and Andy13, good to hook up with someone new. 4 weeks today !!! Received my complimentary kit bag from Exodus last weekend and having re-read trip notes in which it states 12kg baggage max for the trek, thinking carefully about how much clothing i take. That's my only dilemna at the moment. Also read a lot about Diamox and decided to leave it as seems to work for some and make things worse for others. Have not been able to get out walking for a couple of weekends, so need to make the next few weeks count although i'm thinking that if i'm not fit enough now i'll never be fit enough for the trek ! Spending time re-visiting the trip notes etc to make sure i haven't missed anything. Cheers, Kev.
hi, yes I checked my flights with Exodus today, Im the only one not on the group flight !!!!! my flight leaves Heathrow 1635 arriving Kathmandu 1145 next day.
well, everyone packed ready to go???
Sounds like a good group from all the comments above! My wife Shona & I live just north of Glasgow and so will be adding further to the Scottish contingent. We're flying out a day later than the rest of the group I think and arriving in Kathmandu on the afternoon of the 18th and look forward to meeting everybody then. This will be our 4th Exodus trip and 2nd time in Nepal but really looking forward to getting so close to Everest.
Hope everyone's preparation is going well. See you in 10 days time!
