    I did the Everest base camp trek (and Gokyo), walking in and out way back in 1983. On the trek I celebrated my 25th birthday.

    Last fall I returned to do it all again (walking in and out), with my 13 year old daughter, and to celebrate my 50th birthday.

    We had a fantastic time! (even though we had to stop at the rescue station in Machermo as my daughter had picked up tonsillitis).

    To sit up there and soak in the mountain views is about as good as it gets, on this planet at least.

    I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong- Feynman
