Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp #1 & #2

Date: Sunday, October 21
Location: Phakding, 9,500 feet 11 miles or so of walking

The photo is of our Sidar Lahpka. He has climbed Everest 6 times. He lives in Phortse. We had tea at his house. We have worked with him for over 20 years. His house was damaged in the earthquake. 3 years later he is still climbing Everest to try to get the funds to fix his house. We have decided to help spearheaded by Marlene. Our goal is 10,000 dollars. If you are interested in helping let us know. We will be putting up this project on our nonprofit Hopefully we can help keep him off the dangerous job of helping people climb Everest.

Today we walked about 11 miles downhill. Amazing how tiring 11 miles of downhill is. It is much warmer down here.

We found Bob today. Yeah! He is back walking with us.

It is close to Lukla now. Excitement is high.

Tu entames ta dernière semaine, ce périple a très certainement enrichi spirituellement ! Tu me raconteras tes expériences. Je crois que la descente vers Lukia sera plus facile et que la température sera plus clémente. Keep safe Love

Glad you’re back with the crew, dad! How are you feeling? Hoping you’re all getting some rest as you descend to lower altitudes. I can’t wait to hear your reflections on the experience. Careful in your final steps...looking forward to seeing you!!

Glad it is a little easier going downhill. Nice that you were able to have tea with Sidar Lahpka. Hope he is able to recover from the earthquake. It is good that you will see Bob again. Take it easy as you near Lukla. Stay strong.
