We are constantly torn between the mountains and the sea. This blog is an account of our sailing adventures, both in British Columbia and Mexico (2013-2015 trip to Mexico's Sea of Cortez), as well as our mountain adventures (including skiing in the Winter, hiking in the Summer/Fall, and trekking in Nepal). Hopefully this blog will provide you with helpful information on these topics (in addition to documenting our adventures). Welcome!
Good flights to Bangkok, with a couple nights there to work on jetlag, and then on to Kathmandu. Been here now nearly 3 nights, and we're ready to get out of town (still smoggy and crazy, and filled with wide-eyed tourists).
Tomorrow we head out for the day-long drive to the trailhead for the Manaslu circuit (currently at Soti Khola). Manaslu is a "restricted area", which means we are required to hire a guide. (That's OK by us, as we wanted "help" this time carrying our stuff. So a porter and a guide.) It will also be less crowded than Annapurna or Everest treks.
David did the Manaslu circuit trek way back in 1993. A full-on camping only trek (no lodges back them) for 21 days. This time, no camping, and we expect to be trekking for 18-19 days.
Fingers crossed all goes well. (We ain't getting any younger!)
