Mt. Everest Expedition: Prepping in Kathmandu

The RMI 2013 Everest Expedition has now officially started!  Dave arrived late last night along with the last of our baggage.  We are now set to head out from Kathmandu.

We had our first full team meal this morning at breakfast and after that we had an interview with Elizabeth Hawley.  Miss Hawley is a fixture for Everest climbers.  She has maintained a very thorough database of all ascents of the mountain ever since the first ascent of the mountain in 1953.  It was a treat hearing her stories of climbers past and present.  Now in her 90s she is still sharp as a tack and is absolutely interested in all of the expeditions on the mountain.

After that we spent the rest of the day packing for the trek into base camp.  If all goes well we will fly into Lukla tomorrow and trek to the village of Phakding.  We’re all fired up to get that started.
