Hi everyone – Paul here,
We have another set of photos sorted, captioned, compressed for the internet and uploaded to the web site. This group of pictures shows life around Everest Basecamp as we experienced it.
We’ve had great fun doing this – reliving memories and reflecting on the feelings and thoughts we had at Basecamp before we knew what the mountain had in store for us higher up!
We spent a lot of time at base camp – not sure how many days exactly, but it must have been close to two thirds of our time on the expedition. We’ve had to select the best from around 400 good basecamp photos but there are still 60 or so here so you should get a good feel for the place.
For those who weren’t following us during our climb, Chris and Bridget hiked to Basecamp with us and spent 3 days there, and later Mary joined while we were climbing – it was great to have this extra company and moral support.
By the way, several people have asked questions about various things and we’ve been posting our responses as messages on the website for all to see (these can be found under each individual update).
Hope everyone out there is well.
