Getting ready to go.



This is a picture of all my equipment and clothing for the expedition. It's all layed out on the living room floor in some sort of organized heap. It looks like a lot to me but since there aren't any stores at base camp I have to bring everything that I think I will need for the expedition.

My baggage allowance is 30kg and that will be brought into base camp by yak, and up to another 20kg that a porter and I will carry into base camp. The gear list is fairly extensive, and as a result I am not bringing in many luxury items to stay within the weight allowed. One reading book, puzzle books and a deck of cards are the luxury items that I am bringing for entertainment during the rest/weather days that we will have, and they will also be the first to go if I am over weight.

Have a great trip! And don't take those fire logs - I don't think you'll need 'em. :)

Don't forget the " ferrero Roche " chocolates then!
