Well after months of planning and preparation, Mark and his Dad have headed off on the much-anticipated trek. When I got back from Jaipur yesterday there were kits bags and stuff everywhere and I got impression they have spent most of the last couple of days packing and re-packing and going to and from Marks favourite trekking shop. No sightseeing yet! They’re away for over 3 weeks so that is how long you have to prepare yourselves for the “mother of all trekking blogs” when they return! Here’s a picture of them just before then set off – not a great shot as they suddenly got all shy because their crew were all watching!
