A week of preparation was as much fun as the trip. Trying to find that optimum balance between weight and necessity. First time I had used soft panniers (Andy Strapz). I was very impressed with these bags, better than the headcase BM panniers. Also used a mountain design waterproof tough sack (blue bag) which was awesome. Intend to buy another one.

The night before leaving I had a big night out attending the Australian Himalayan Foundation dinner. It was a great night and an honor to hear Peter Hillary talk about his famous father Ed. The next day we. The 6:00am start was a tough call. Said my goodbyes to my wife and kids and headed off.
