Bon Voyage at O'Byrnes Pub on Whyte


Last night a bunch of friends and colleagues from STARS and the Royal Alex gathered with Domnhall and I at O'Byrnes pub for a bit of a Bon Voyage party.

John, a STARS medic, made me this incredible cake in the shape of Mt. Everest. At the bottom are three Ju-Jubes representing tents at base camp, and then four more Ju-Jubes on the mountain for camps 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Mini-Marshmallows represent the Khumbu Icefall between base camp and camp 1, complete with aluminum ladders for the crevasse crossings.

And finally, both the Lhotse and Everest summits, covered in snow.

Thank you John, and all that attended. And everytime that I am scared crossing the icefall, I will think of the big seracs as just mini-marshmellows, soft and sweet.
