    This sounds like a fantastic idea! I hope you have a really good time. Good luck to you both ; especially with finding yetis and ‘safe’ ice cream. I look forward to reading your posts over the coming two months.

  2. John in Tokyo says:

    Sounds scarey man. Hope it all goes well. Can’t wait to see the photos. While you’re looking for Yetis, keep an eye out for Elvis! I heard they’re roommates!

  3. George in Bournemouth says:

    Wonderful plan and an interesting website. I like the Sir Rutherford Alcock story. Sounds like the archetypal English gentleman who has trouble doing his own shoe laces up but astounds everyone with his brilliance at the end. A shame we have to wait until November for the next instalment!?!?!. Good luck to you both and don’t forget your warm hats!

  4. Paul in London says:

    Good luck to you both. I’m sure you’re going to have a wonderful time and make some great memories. Don’t spend too much time fiddling with this blog. Just get out there and enjoy it!

    Mmmm me thinks Andy met a Yeti sometime ago – seen him first thing in the morning and he has got Big Feet …..

    Good luck to you both. I’ve found you some advice on porters, although I fear it may be rather tricky finding these where you are going…

    On a recent trip to the Lake District I went to a very interesting talk by Cockermouth Mountain Rescue, although I fear it might be a little tricky to coax them to Nepal.

    Otherwise I recommend taking a towel, I mean if Douglas Adams advises it how can it be a bad idea? And perhaps some sort of pre-reading along the lines of “What to do if a Yeti is about to violently maul you and you discover you’re the slowest runner in the group?”

      Thanks for the link Robert, but I’m after a different kind of Porter for a change.
      A towel? I hadn’t planned on washing much in the next 30 days.
      Me thinks you fear too much; the world is not as dangerous as The Daily Mail would have you believe!
      I think the procedure when being chased by a yeti is to throw the nearest child at it. Why do you think I’m taking Julian along!
