Back in Kathmandu

Paul, Fi and Mary are back in Kathmandu. They arrived safely from Lukla yesterday and have been trying to re-arrange their tickets to Bangkok and on to Melbourne. Very sorry there is no update from them. We do expect to hear their return plans shortly. We'll keep you posted.

Hi Guys

I look forward to hearing a review of your gear and any shortcomings or positive aspects of particular gear you have used during your expedition.

Paul Im keen to hear what happened with your O2 in particular as we know this is a critical aspect of the expedition.

Would be good to get feedback on how you might with hindsight approach any aspect of the climb and improvements you might suggest in preparation or gear choice, nutrition, hydration and gels or strategy on the mountain.

So now that you are off the mountain, have you removed that red string that the Lama gave you?

Thanks for keeping us informed on your fantastic journey!
