Short post here. More later. Altitude tent is gone, made it up to sleeping at 16,000 feet. Packing still to do...testing technologies to make sure GPS tracker works, camera and computer for copying and pasting photos, figuring out how to use the alarm on my watch, new international cell phone (Verizon had promised a loaner then reneged when they learned it would take more than 21 days to get it back. Thinking I may thank them with a carrier switch after 20years as a loyal customer!) Migrating to European time (getting up VERY early these mornings) to help with jet lag since Nepal is a perfect 12 hours flip flop sleep wake cycle.
The todo list just seems daunting. Getting close. Getting excited.
