I made it.
I’ll get back to how the trip to Everest Base Camp went soon. All I’ll say for now is this; the title for the trip has been playing through my head for five days – “The Trek to Everest Base Camp, A Most Beautiful Nightmare” …Stay tuned.
Second. Anyone who travels for an extend period of time misses plenty back home. One day supersedes all others. The Mom’s birthday. The day I ascended to Everest Base Camp on the 12th happened to line up with that important day, and according to the Gorakshep Evac Team, “a mom’s birthday isn’t a satellite phone worthy emergency”. So, for now I hope this will do.
Happy Birthday Mom!
