OK, I know this is madness but I've just booked to go on the Gokyo Lake trek with my hiking group. Well, not completely mad. I've got approval to work from Nepal and I figure that because of the 4 1/2 hour time difference, I should be able to get most of my hiking done before 9:30am GMT on most days.So assuming I can get online, that means I can both hike AND work.
It will be good to get 2 weeks hiking at altitude under my belt within 6 months of the EBC trek. To be able to earn money while doing it, doubly so. And it will be awesome to do it with my friends.
Anyway, flights are booked. Just waiting for confirmation from the guy who cancelled that I can take his place and to work out those logistics.
