Meet the Team- Triple Crown 2014' Expedition

Peak Freak members escaped grounded flights in Kathmandu and most of snow that has created deadly avalanches in the Annapurna region. They are safe in the Everest region that did not get the direct hit from cyclone Hudbud as it passed over the Himalayas. 

Their photos coming out of there today are showing sunny skies and no snow on the ground. Tim said the team is watching on TV right now at the Zamling lodge in Namche Bazaar the local Nepal news who is reporting 12 dead so far and at least 50 rescues in other areas, not the Khumbu- Everest region. 

Email from one member just now:

Hi Becky.  Greetings from Namche!

Thank you so much for that completely unexpected birthday cake last night at Zamlings.  It had to be one of my best and most memorable birthdays ever - starting with a great walk up from Monjo, a fun afternoon in Namche and spectacular lightning and thunder in the evening.

Hsrd to believe, but this trip might even be better than my trip last year to EBC.  We have a fantastic group, and Tim is blast to be around.  He really makes things fun.  What a guy.

The weather cleared today and we had spectacular scenery on our day trip up to Khunde and Khumjung.

What a trip!

Best regards,
Craig Falkenhagen
