Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Have a Couple of Big Days on Their Trek Out

BIG, BIG days in a row.  What a whirl wind tour this has been. Since leaving Pheriche at 14,000 ft and going up to 17,000-foot Everest Base Camp it has been all business.

The team has linked together so many tough days and been rewarded with so many memories, I sure hope the lack of oxygen to the brain doesn’t effect the retention of them. We were up early to a blue-sky day.  Quick breakfast and off we go.  The word descend is a bit misleading when traveling in the Khumbu region.  The dramatic relief in topography combined with all the weathering and rivers makes for a lot of ups and downs from start to finish of the day. Midway on our trek today, it started to snow pretty heavy.  The team has been fine tuning what basic equipment to have in our packs at all times.  Needless to say most of our clothing went on as we traveled through a winter wonderland.  The downhill becomes a big challenge with wet and slippery condition.  An impressive demonstration by my group of climbers today with no misstep under trying conditions. All tired but happy with one more BIG day tomorrow, which will get us back to the Lukla airstrip.
