Hello Everyone,
This is Amy again -I just spoke with Chris - he sounds very happy - so apparently the new posts have been going to 2005 - I have to figure out how to change the dates on this site, and don't have the time to figure it out now - there is a photo - so if you get a chance, go back in time to 2005 to see the photo of everyone -

here are two of the posts that have gone up!

Hello to all, Robbie writing to you on the 16th of April from Seduwa and all is great!!! We have meshed well with our new French friends and we are traveling with great strength and bright smiles. The Nepali children have have helped us along the way and have provided us with some well deserved entertainment... Aside of a lil delay getting out of KTM we finally are hiking in some of the more remote areas of Nepal. We are in the Makalu/ Barun Valley and today was the most strenuous day of the trek so far for we had had to actually hike. Yep, we didn't have jeep support, no really today was spectacular... We are definitely in the thick of the Nepali culture... Broken english is par for the trek and the remoteness and the surreal landscape adds to the journeys mystical milieu... An interesting mix of tropical and high alipine flora.... Thick cummulus clouds obscure the high mountains though for a brief moment we were able to glimpe the lower South Face of Makalu from above Num. We have been blessed with no ailments aside of some low grade Gi issues and a loving leech that afixed itself to Leslie's index finger..Iodine works well for leech removal!!! We are so Psyched that all is going so well and we are hoping that our great fortunes continue for the rest of the expedition...

In The Du

Just a quick update to make sure my sat phone and electronics are in working order before going out into the mountains. I had a great flight over, slept soundly, and ready for the days ahead. Today is all about checking the list for the fourth time .

Hello Everyone,

just a quick update from Chris's sister, Amy- I received a voicemail from Chris this morning.  He indicated he did post an update, but it apparently did not stick - he sounded good and from the schedule it looks like they are still trekking their way to base camp and should be there by the 26th.

hope this finds everyone well,
