Hi, there is another departure blog that some of us from this trip having been chatting on. Ian and I are from Cornwall, we've always enjoyed the mountains , but like you , not at high altitude, so hoping we'll be Ok. We have Diamox to take.Now we've started to get bits ready it's becomming real!! We're just going by the kit list really and struggling with the weight, so may not be able to take all the chocolate bars and clean clothes that I'd hoped !! We've hired down jackets from Exodus and will take thermal base layers and fleece tops. There's a universal packing list too from Exodus which is quite useful. We're flying from Heathrow Fri 30th pm, how about you?
Look forward to meeting you all
Hi Carol and Ian, great to hear from you, I am glad that we in the same boat. As you have mentioned we have followed the kit list and I think we have everything. we have rented the sleeping bags from Exodus, but have everything else (hopefully)
We are really looking forward to it, we are from Belfast and will fly approx 3ish to Heathrow on Friday and then on with the group I assume with Jet Airways. We have any choclate bar with nuts we can think off and various different bags of jellies / wine gums for a quick sugar rush.
We have been checking the weather and even in Lukla it is still predicted to be over 18 degrees. we didnt think that it would potentially be as warm as this, we will see you on Friday / Saturday morning (in case we dont meet on Friday at Heathrow).
Enjoy the last week of packing , I am sure our bags will be packed and unpacked several times before friday morning
