After nearly 24 hours of travel we finally arrived in Kathmandu yesterday afternoon. We met up with Doug at LAX, as he was on our same flight. On the plane, we also saw a couple of guys who we shared base camp on Cho Oyu with last fall. They are headed to Everest this year as well.
Doug, my dad, and I met up with the rest of the team (Victor, James, and Wim) at our hotel in Kathmandu. We had a group meeting where we went over the route we are going to take to basecamp, and then we picked up some odds and ends at one of the dozens of local climbing stores.
The team is flying to Lukla to begin the trek to basecamp early tomorrow morning.
