Words can't describe the four days I just spent with the Everest team, hiking in the Eastern Sierras. Friday was tough but it was just a warm up for Saturday. Eight hours of difficult terrain and high elevation, but we made it to Kearsarge Pass -- 11,600 feet.
Now I really know I can do Everest. The niggling doubts are gone. I'm strong, mentally and physically. The going will be hard and slow but I have no doubt I'll get to Base Camp.
27 days and it's off to Bangkok for a few days, then to Katmandu!
Check out this video of the recent hike. Pretty cool.
I'll have a few more posts before I leave on October 6th, and I hope to post along the trail in Nepal. Stay tuned!
