Tonight we had our first official expedition planning meeting. The first suggestion from my mother, a woman who not five minutes earlier had scoffed at the notion of boarding a train with a backpack, was Everest Base Camp. This yak is concerned about this turn of events, especially since people keep suggesting it as a transport option.
She then said we should try to find a yeti. I feel this is a project for an entirely different book. Are all the planning meetings going to be this weird?
