Everest Base Camp Trek: Mark Tucker and Team Arrive in Kathmandhu

Mark Tucker here in Nepal kicking off the RMI 2013 Mount Everest programs.

Our first wave of climbers are all here with bags intact.  After a nice city tour and final preparations yesterday we have made our way to the Domestic airport. Right now we are at the boarding area and on standby due to a weather delay in Lukla, which is our flight destination.  Not unusual for such a delay, so we will wait till weather conditions improve.  A cup of tea and a book will hold us over for a while.  No hurry.  Looking forward to keeping you all up to date as best I can over the next couple of weeks / months / years.

Life should be about building great memories.  Bill & Susie, you have already built some fantastic ones, but this trek will add another extremely interesting chapter!!  That should be true for the entire team.  Mark Tucker has had a lot of years of experience, but just from looking at the pictures so far, I doubt he will ever have a more attractive & enthusiatic group to work with.  Have fun, be safe and may the “Luck of the Irish” be with you all.  Lots of love, Tom & Karen
