Monday morning, 5:38am local time - Kathmandu hasn't woken up yet but Kathy, Tara and I are set to meet in 12 minutes and start the long jeep drive to Salleri, from where we'll start the long way to Mera Peak.  

Tara and Kathy arrived yesterday shortly after lunch, and we had a full afternoon with last minute gear prep, logistics, and the first dinner in Nepal.  Everyone is in good spirits and excited to head into the mountains today. The GPS will be live starting later today - check out where we are and feel free to send us messages on it, too! 

Once we're out there I'll do my best to share photos here and there.  Stay tuned.
