IMG guide “LTC” Jenni Fogle reports from Kathmandu that after a few rest days, she is getting ready to fly back into Khumbu. For this next trek to Everest BC, she will be leading a custom group that we put together for Jerry Maida and his friends. The group ranges in age from 25 to 69 with both experienced trekkers and new ones. The team is comprised of Tim, an estate trusts attorney from FL; Rita, a family personal assistant and HIV/Health counselor; James, a heavy equipment mechanic from CA; Elizabeth (Doll) a lasik eye surgeon and runner from GA; Grace, an investment banker from WV; Susan, a prosecutor from WA; Skeets, a retired insurance executive from FL; Robin, a marathoner and volunteer from NY; Brewster, an insurance salesman from CT; Kurt, a financial advisor from NJ; Katherine, a college student from FL; and Jerry, a lasik surgeon and spectacular organizer from FL.
Working with Jenni is Lobsang Sherpa. It sounds like a fun group, and there should be lots of good dinner conversation!. We’ll look forward to tracking their progress as they head on to Base Camp.
Update (6:59am): We just heard that all members and luggage now have reached Lukla, and they have started trekking!
