After a long flight and four or five movies each, we’ve arrived in New Delhi safe and sound.

To our relief all of our gear has arrived also (that got freighted from NZ) and is now strewn across the floor of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation which is where we’re staying.

Tommorrow we head off into the great beyond, well, Rishikesh actually, via the team bus and in a few days we’ll begin the trek to basecamp.

So far everything is going really well, even our stomachs are holding up well to the rigours of Indian cuisine in Delhi.

 Our next contact with back home may be when we get back out from the hills, so take care everybody, see ya on the otherside!

M, A, C, K, B


We’re off!!

The guys and I would like to invite you to our send off to India! Come along to the Twisted Hop, Poplar St (just off Lichfield) from 6 pm Monday 20 August for some brews and chews…..bring a friend.

For those you who have helped us along the way, we like to say thank you for all your help. It’d be great if you could make it along so we can do it in person.
