It has been a busy week for us, as we purchased more expedition food, removed all the unnecessary packaging, and then carefully repacked it into waxed boxes for its journey from USA to Nepal and on to Base Camp for our upcoming 2020 Everest Expedition. After a few days of work, the excitement comes when we deliver the load to our shipping agent at SeaTac airport. Food, including plenty of bacon, is on the launching pad for Kathmandu!
In Nepal, Ang Jangbu and Senior Guide, Phunuru Sherpa, sent word that a team of 14 Advanced Sherpa will meet Ang Pasang in Gorakshep on the 20th of March and begin building our camp site at Everest Base Camp on March 21st.
Our climbing team is doing exactly what they should be doing, making piles of gear, packing, and repacking. I have received a number of great phone calls or exchanged emails with climbers and trekkers asking all of the right questions about dialing their systems.
