The other day, I paid my deposit, thus securing my place on the Climb Your Mountain’s first Everest Base Camp trip! It’s pretty exciting yet nerve-racking stuff…
I have approximately 8 months to raise a further £2750.
Get myself into reasonable shape (which is going to be tough!)
Prepare myself mentally for the possibility of lack of sleep due to being so blinkin cold.
Trying to stop worrying about having an overactive bladder at night-time (possibly due to all the water you drink, or the diamox, who knows….this I experienced on Kili, much to the confusion of my tent buddy!) Walking out of your tent in pitch darkness on the side of a mountain is a rather odd feeling! (Getting up about 10 times in a night didn’t help my issue with the cold)
And the biggest dilemma, do I dust off my Puppy eaten boots which successfully saw me up and down Kili, or do I treat myself to a new pair?
