Adventures of a mother of 7 – Johanna Gustafsson

Because it's there!

When 8 years old I learned about Mount Everest, and ever since I have dreamed about climbing up there. When I became middle-aged and sensible I thought that it's impossible.

2012 when I turned 50 I suddenly got this crazy idea to fulfill my childhood dream. Now, almost 2 years later, after studying, training, researching & finding solutions, it seems possible!

If things go well I will summit in May 2014, if things don't go well I will hopefully do it another year. If you want to follow me vie e-mail updates you can subscribe to them.

Checking gear, packing

Sunday morning I lifted all my gear onto the table and started getting rid of anything I don't really need with me. Seems that I will make it to a 23 kg bag for the flights to Delhi and on to Kathmandu. Actually the flight from Delhi to Kathmandu is probably limited to 20 kg. 

Good thing I left some gear earlier in Kathmandu & Lukla.

Off to the airport in a couple of hours!
