Ember BC Pennys Tent 150x150 Embers Everest Escapade: Cooeee from EBC

Penny's Tent is very comfy

While Trotty has been facing her challenges at home, together the team and I have been facing the continuing challenge of climbing higher and higher, as our bodies slowly adapt. I’ve learnt to drink more water than gum leaves give me, otherwise I get a headache.

Everyone has taken turns to give me a ride in their backpacks and I’ve found my favourite spot in each person’s tent here at Base Camp. In Penny’s tent I have a new friend Kiwi Bear and books to read in my own chair. I’m one very lucky and cared for koala.

I really understand now that no one can achieve their goals on their own.

One very special ceremony I was included in, was the Team Puja. We wouldn’t consider standing upon Chomolungma without asking her permission and receiveing a blessing from the Lama.

Enjoying the view

The views of Everest on the hike in were spectacular but daunting. It’s much taller than my favourite gum tree in Trotty’s backyard!
Sitting here at Base Camp I remember her words. She warned me not to think about the summit yet, as it can be overwhelming. Just take it one day at a time.
Most dreams seem to be like that. The end Goal is HUGE!! but break it down into each day’s tasks……that I know I can do!

Hooroo
