I just want to put this out there. I am nervous. Maybe a little scared. Can I do this? I met a lady on the bus who did our exact trail 2 years ago – just three trekkers and and a bushel of porters – the had something like 11 porters (we have 7!!). She had a great time and made it. Felt better. Then I read something about all the people who fail: 50 to 70 percent of climbers do not make it. And I go — do I deserve to make it? I have a raw blister on my right heal – I am not in perfect shape – I ride a lot but took time off for this. Will I make it? Or will I peter out? Or get severe altitude sickness. Okay okay. All I can do is my best. And enjoy the ride.
