Namaste friends, family and loved ones,
This was an acclimatization day for team “Are we there Yeti”. That doesn’t mean rest day however, so we trekked above the little potato yak village of Pheriche for the view. We passed flag festooned chortens and Stupa monuments along our route. We climbed to 15,000 feet which was a PR for many of us. After lunch we attended a great seminar on altitude illness put on by the Himalayan Rescue Association. Doctor Andy Nyberg did a fantastic job teaching us how to avoid issues at altitude.
Then we ran into our old friend Erik Weinhiemer the author, motivational speaker, rock climber, big water kayaker and seven summiter. He refuses to let his blindness keep him from living a very full adventurous life. Pick up a copy of his most recent book “No Limits”and you’ll be amazed.
The team is very much alive and kicking. Tomorrow we power up to Lobuche. It’s a big jump in altitude so we’ll take it easy.
All our best,Carole and Vern Tejas
