Leaving Soon For Kathmandu!



Hello and thanks for following along.

This is just a quick post to check in.  I am in India this week working from our office in Trivandrum.  It has been great to reconnect with colleagues and to get a head start in adjusting to the 11 hour time difference from Chicago.

The climbing team is assembling in Kathmandu this weekend!  We plan to begin the trek to Everest Base Camp sometime early next week.


(P.S. Bonus points to anyone who recognizes this picture as being from the north side of the mountain.  My approach will be from the south side.  George Mallory and Sandy Irvine approached Mt. Everest from the north (Tibet) in 1924; Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay approached from the south (Nepal) in 1953. )

      Thanks, Phil. I will say hi to Billy for you when I see him in Kathmandu. Hope your training for Denali continues to go well! Only one more mountain for you to complete the “50 High Points.” Really amazing!
