Yesterday, we arrived at Pheriche. The trek from Tengboche to Pheriche was really fun.  Everyone is in good health and spirits.

I can’t believe I’m back in the Himalayas. I feel so blessed to be enjoying the breathtaking beauty of the Himalaya mountain range.

In Tengboche, we got our first look at Mt. Everest. Every time I see this mountain for the first time, I get goosebumps.  I just can’t believe I will soon be climbing this mountain again.

We plan to stay here one more day to help acclimatize to the altitude. We will leave for Lobuche on April 14.

  1. Was at the club tonight and gave them a report that Allan gave me (Allan – I also bragged about RM in a little shameless promotion). Everyone sends best wishes and safe journey. Alan

  2. I have gone through this so many times with you and it simply never gets old. So great to get these updates that begin from where your standing to take that picture, and at some point end up at the top of that peak in the distance. Incredible. One foot in front of the other. Keep going. 😀

  3. Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Pumo Ri, Everest–glimpsing at the giants today with the quiver of anticipation for the trekking to come. Blessings to all,

    My units motto was “Never Daunted”. AND, you’re also never daunted by Mount Everest! Your two pictures show why you love to return to this part of the world. It is exceedingly beautifully. I keep you and your team in my prayers.

  5. Hi Bill:

    I’ve been following your travels every day, and it’s really exciting knowing that you’re doing it again. The progress reports that you are sending are so vivid especially since we are all able to use the technology that you’ve made available – it’s almost like we’re right there with you – the 3D visuals and the ability to move aground the area are very exciting.

    Keep communicating to us down below and I’ll leave you with a comment made by one of your fellow climbers…..”Well, we knocked the bastard off.” – Sir Edmund Hillary-

    Regards to you and please say hello to Allan for me.


  6. I got the same feeling as a kid everytime I saw the Matterhorn from the Disneyland parking lot. Be safe, climb strong and have fun.

  7. Incredible, breathtaking, daunting — all of it! Although I’ve seen so many pictures of Everest, from all angles, there’s something about looking at one taken by the hands of a friend — so much more real, larger than life (could it be?). Prayers will continue to abound!! The 3-D tracking is phenomenal, thank you so much for making that accessible (I go on it about three times a day, not sure if I’ll ever get tired of it!). Love & all from your trekking buddies here, Kit

  8. Bill:

    Incredible. I am so happy for you. Looking at your pictures puts a big
    smile on my face knowing you will be trekking up there again. Looking
    at that mounain in real life must be so thrilling for you. Take care on
    your journey up. Our prayers are with you.

    John & Bobbie
