Nov. 5 - Maegan joins the team

Listen to Audio of Wally's Call (.wav)

It’s November 5th.  It was another perfectly clear November day in the Khumbu and we certainly enjoyed our first day in Namche Bazaar. 

Maegan and Grant are reunited in NamcheI did not mention it yesterday but we have been reunited with Maegan Carney.  She reached the summit of Ama Dablam climbing on her own on October 26th.  Of course we are all happy, especially Grant but all the rest of us are happy to be together with Meagan again.  She is going to join us for this trek and the climb of Lobuche Peak and she will be offering support for our Ama Dablam climb so it’s great to have her on the team again.
