Rod needs to blog

So here I am helping him out.

Of course, I really don’t know what I’m doing on this blog, or really what I want to write about. How about my fears about this trip. Let me get those out of the way first.

Having not climbed at altitude like we are going to do, I’m having a hard time imagining what that will feel like, or will my body be able to withstand the heights. Closely following that is the capacity of my physical strength to climb so many mountains in a short amount of time. I know what it feels like the next few days after a heavy hike or climb, and how sore I am, and tired. We are compressing all of this into a relatively short span of time. My hope is that the body will do what you ask it to do, and that like running/racing its a matter of mental toughness.

When Chelsey and I went to Nepal we trekked for hours at a time up and down at high altitude. We had no idea what we were getting into. At least this time we have a better idea and are in better shape. After a few days we got our hiking legs. I’m hoping this trip will be the same.
