Everest Trek @$^&! Satellite Phone

Hiya all, this is Chris calling in from a small internet cafe (1 computer) at Namche Bazar in Nepal. We made our way up here from Lukla and even though we’d love to send you many many more updates, we are currently stuck with a satellite phone that doesn’t activate, resulting in less than optimum connection to the outside world. We are trying to work with the sat phone provider to get this fixed, and at the moment we are waiting for them to get back to us with a solution. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that this will work soon.

Other than that, we are all fine after a massive hike yesterday that brought some of us at and beyond the limits of what they had ever before. Including yours truly. This is an amazing experience and we all wish we had more possibilities to share things with you all.

Let’s hope for the best.

Signing off.
