Moving to Everest Base Camp tomorrow

You can get more information about Jon's expedition at the following link:

International Mountain Guides (IMG) has several different teams that are on different rotations.  IMG offers 3 types of services:

1)  Everest climb                   1:1 Western guide

2)  Hybrid Everest climb       1:1 Sherpa guide and 4:1 Western guide

3)  Classic Everest climb       1:1 Sherpa guide

Jon is in the first "Classic" team.

Last night, he called from his sat phone to let me that all is well.  They are at Lobuche base camp and are heading for Everest base camp tomorrow (tonight our time).


You can track his current location with the following link:


  1. Jon, Lots of love, prayers and hugs from Tony and Kathy. Can't wait to see you and hear all the great stories. xo

  2. Looking forward to the next post! Thinking you must be at BC now. Looks like you have walked a lot of miles in the last several days. 20K warm up... Wow! Hope that went well and the weather stays nice. I'm thinking this is your turn! Wishing you all the best.
    Come see us in Truckee -- we have the whole house now
    Love from Ken and Carol
