Annapurna Circuit - saying hi

My wife and I are doing our first trip with Exodus and although 6 months away, really looking forward to it and the preparation.

I was fortunate to have attempted to climb a mountain in the Annapurnas back in 97.

Whilst there I wished that Jen was there with me and for the last 20 years it has always been something I wanted to share with her and now we have the opportunity.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying an epic experience together.

Set up a FB group to chat etc prior to going.

if anyone who is coming wants in, it is a private group, so let us know so we can invite.

A big adventerous hello to those doing the Annapurna Ciruit in April '19'.

Thank you Trev & Jen for getting the ball rolling, I've been meaning to post! This is also my first Exodus trip and first time to Nepal. I'm usually drawn to adventures below sea level, so exploring many metres above it in the Himalayas is so unbelievably exciting, I even have a count down clock on my phone! :-)

Looking forward to meeting you all and sharing this epic chapter.

Welcome onboard so to speak.
Not sure if you are interested in the facebook group, it is private so no one can see who is in it or anything posted, just members.
Intention is only people going on the trip will be allowed in and it is a place to discuss preparations, kit, food or anything else as we prepare for the adventure.
It is searchable through Groups on Facebook 'Exodus ACT Apr 19'.
Just Jen and I in there at the moment, would be nice to chat in there because tbh the Exodus forum here is pretty aweful.. like a flashback to the technology of the 90s.
Either way, it is good to hear from you and we look forward to meeting you in Apr.

Hi guys, which departure are you all on? We fly out on the 5th April.

Steve & Kate

We fly out on 6 th Apr.

Are you flying out independently, because I think there is only one ACT at that time with Exodus.

We're flying from Manchester late-ish on the Friday night, it must be the same trip, think we just arrive slightly ahead of you guys.

Hi Steve, yeah almost certainly is.

Wish we were arriving a little earlier to have a chance to change money over before the trek begins.

I am sure they will have to allow time or you may be my new best friend as I 'scav' dinner money off you :-)

In truth though, looking forward to it, same offer as I made to Penny.

There is a facebook group I have set up, would  be good to chat about preparations etc prior to arriving.

Let me know if you have any issues.

Hiya

Thanks for creating the FB page and for adding me.  Looking forward to meeting you all, in just over 4 months! It'll be here before we know it :-)

We've recently been on an Exodus trekking holiday to the Alps. Although a different part of the World it looks a similar-ish kind of format.

If his trek as only half as good as our last it will be amazing!

 

 

we were going to do the mont blanc circuit next year but decided to go all in and do ACT.

Can't believe how quick time is going, as ever.

Only 4 months left until we all start meeting up and the adventure begins.
Well 4 months tomorrow when those of us not flying from London will meet up I believe.

The facebook group is up and active for anyone else who is going with us and would like to join.

 Hopefully everyone is injury free and ready for the adventure.

Hi there. I’m Susan. thanks for starting up this forum. I’m really looking forward to the trip. I’ll check out the Facebook page as might be easier To be in touch. 

so as the title says. Happy New Year everyone, especially those in this thread who are doing the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

A little over 3 months now as the excitement and also trepidation build up in equal measures.

We have started doing test packs, weighing kit and getting stricter with packing.

We are looking forward to meeting everyone.

so our trip is now fully booked.

To those who haven’t already joined the Facebook group, you are welcome to if you wish.

Either way, looking forward to meeting everyone in 3 months....

so we are down to 2 months left before we travel.

It is getting real so to speak.  We have packed,repacked and packed again.

We are now at the stage of actually believing we have everything and don’t need to buy anything else.

 We are trying to keep up with training to an extent, in between the normal pressures of life and work.

Our excitement and trepidation levels seem to be climbing quite equally but we are both truly looking forward to this adventure and meeting everyone.

I hope everyone is preparing well and are as excited as we are. I hope you stay fit and healthy and look forward to meeting you all.

 

Hi there - I am Rosa and I am on this trip too! This is my second solo trip with Exodus and first time in Nepal. I am excited but slightly anxious!... Not long now!!! Looking forward to meet you all!

Aye not long now, in fact a month today until our travelling starts.

Really looking forward to it and hope everyone’s preparations are on schedule. :-)

It is actually a month tomorrow... 

Guess I am wishing the days away.

OMG! Yes, you are right! In the blink of an eye, we all be in Nepal!! Hooray!! I am flying from London but separately, so I will meet you there on the 7th! Can't wait!!!

 

 

 

There is a Facebook group linked previously which a few of us are in.

Not been massively active but a little bit.

Can let you know our flight plans, we are also flying from London but separate to the group.

I am sorry, I am one of those who are not on FB! I know, I know, it's so abnormal not having an account these days... I am considering it though! :)

In terms of flighs, I am flying with Oman Air, LHR to MCT at 8:25h on 6th April. Stopover in Muscat. You guys?

we are out at around 1400 on 6th.

We arrive early on Sunday morning.

Wanted that so we have a full day in Kathmandu before the trek

Yes, I wanted an extra day too... I'll see you all at the hotel. Have a safe flight everyone! :)

 

well we are a mere week away.

I hope everyone has all the kit and preparations sorted.

No niggles or pains before we start.

Hope everyone has a safe, stress free journet and we look forward to meeting you all.
