Day 2: Trip to Everest Base Camp: Pakding
10/18/2010, Padking, Nepal

I feel like I'm 10 years old again! Every other word out of my mouth is "wow" or "awesome" or "amazing!" and I know that this is just the beginning! But not all is quiet in paradise as I found out at 2AM!

Last night I was sleeping in a tea house in Pakding, snuggled in my Sierra Designs BTU 5 sleeping bag and enjoying one of the most peaceful sleeps in recent memory. I was probably subconsciously allowing the waterfall outside my window to lull me into a false sense of security :) Suddenly I was awakened by a loud rumble and then a shake for about 15 seconds. A stark reminder that even paradise has it's perils. I went back to sleep hoping that mother nature wouldn't wake me again. It didn't :)

It's now morning, and I'm getting ready for the day ahead. Just put on my Thermawool/Thermadri Terramar base layer, Sierra Designs hiking pants and Scapra Barun GTX hiking boots. I'm ready to roll! Enjoying a bowl Sherpa porridge (for "stamina and energy" I was told) and am heading to Namache Bazaar. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
