Gavin Bate Everest 2002 Expedition

APRIL 2 2002: Just a very short update - Gavin phoned via his portable sat phone today from the roof of his hotel in Nyalan, He said it was snowing and very cold!

The team got through the Nepal/Tibet boarder with no problems and will be going on to Tingri tomorrow, where they will stay for two days.

Its then onto base camp, where the trekkers will stay for six days - Gavin says everyone is keeping well and are looking forward to the next part of the expedition.

It is unlikely there will be much news over the next few days - although we may get a few pics! Watch this space...

That's all for now,

Richard
