EBC - 20th Sept - 6 Oct

Hi, 👋🏼

Anyone booked on this trip? :)

Hi Ann Marie

Yes, we are! I‘m Stevie and my husband Carl. Half excited, half nervous. 

hi Stevie and Carl. Nice to meet you both 😂

Sorry for the late reply.

 3 months and 3 days to go 😂. Not counting or anything. How is the training going?

And you! Loving the countdown!  Training going ok I think - walking, cycling and Pilates. Two trips to Cumbria planned in July for fell-walking. What about you? Have you done anything like this before? 

Fantastic! Will be a walk in the park for you both and enjoy the trip to Cumbria, sounds good!

I joined a rambler group this year so this weekend, we went to the Peak a District, other than that I work out in the gym - running and stair climber mainly.

I’ve previously done Kilimanjaro, Inca trail and Mount Toubkal - all with Exodus. EBC has been on my bucketlist for some time. How about yourselves? Have you done anything similar?

 

Oh I hope so! We’ve trekked in Nepal before, at lower levels, and also done the Inca Trail. We’ve done some other Exodus trips, nearer to sea level! 

Lovely!

Are you flying from Heathrow?

No, home is in South Yorkshire so we’re flying from Manchester. 

Oh yes that makes sense, I live in Birmingham but flying from Heathrow to Istanbul. 

Hi Ann, Stevie and Carl. My name is Julian and i will also be on this trip with my good friend Jon, we are flying out of Heathrow Ann so no doubt we will meet you at the airport. 

Hi Julian, look forward to meeting you and Carl :)

Just under a month now!

Is everyone feeling prepared?

Hi, and hello Julian and Jon

Are you all taking a water sterilisation kit?  Or relying on the boiled water from the tea houses?

We've done about as much prep as we're going to I think - long walk in the Peaks planned for BH Monday.  Just the packing to get our heads round!

What time do you arrive in Kathmandu from LHR - we arrive 08.20

S&C

Hi Stevie, i think we come in at 06.20 on the 21st. We have some tablets and also a UV steri pen. I have just started training lol to little to late is the term i think. but never mind it will be what it is.

Hey to everyone, my name is Fiona and I will be trekking in the same group as you guys departing on 20th Sept from LHR.  Possibly in the 'camp' (no pun intended) of having all the gear but no idea, but I'm enthusiatic, if not a little nervous of the suspension bridges.  Gots loads of questions in my head, and looking forward to meeting everyone :)

Looking forward to meeting you all.  Funny, isn't it - I'm not worried about the suspension bridges, its flyng in / out of Lukla that's giving me the heebie-jeebies!
