Peaks of Ladakh Aug 9th

Hi Guys

Anyone on this trip flying from Heathrow, Friday 9th?

Looking forward to meeting everyone (nervous and excited in equal mesaure)!


Hi Carol, yes I'm on this trip. Just about finished packing after spending ages getting the weight down to the limit!


Hi Dave
Thanks for the message and nice to meet you!
How have you done that?!  I was up 'til 3am last night attempting to do exactly that... going to have to try again this evening.  Can't get under the weight wthout leaving out essential items (like my trekking boots!!).  Think I will be doing washing on our quiet days.  Any tips much appreciated!

My problem is the internal flighht limit. The techy kit will be carried separately to our kitbags once we get to Leh but until then, I'm right on the limit. I'll be wearing anything heavy on that flight - it won't be long so I'll put up with the discomfort. Like you I'll be washing along the way if that's possible. From experience, I know that clothes don't get as smelly at altitude as they would here so that helps. 

Right now, I'm just under 1kg over the internal flight limit. Hoepfully they won;t look too closely at my backpack!
