Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek: Casey Grom & Team Reach Gorak Shep

Hello again everyone.

Just one more day to go before we reach our goal of Basecamp! Today we arrived in Gorak Shep, the original Base camp that early expeditions used. Being that this is the last stop before the normal BC it is rather small, only about 4 tea houses here. Originally we were planning on climbing Kala Patar this evening, but due to reoccurring stomach issues and clouds rolling in we have opted for a morning ascent. The standard weather is clear in the morning and clouds in the afternoons, so hopefully it will continue to be the same.

Just so everyone back home knows, I have spoken to a few doctors about the issues (just mainly upset stomachs) and they have informed us that there have been many trekkers with similar symptoms this season.

Everyone is still smiling, just not all day long. 

We are looking forward to Base Camp!

Stomach issues still haven’t cleared up? I’m praying that all of you will be well and back to normal soon. At least the weather seems to be cooperating. Good luck on getting to base camp!

Really hope the “tummy issues” are GONE! Were the Peeps stale? You are all looking good in the photos and pray that the day was clear and you were all able to go to Kala Patar and Base Camp today.
