Well, it is really time to get going now. After countless gear checks, packing and repacking and last minute substitutions, the two massive bags are ready.
Comparing the two pictures below, I have to say that it was a serious exercise of planning (trek vs base camp v summit), shrinking the volumes (I found compressible ziploc bags extremely helpful) and positioning every corner to fit another (tetris, remember?!).
And at the airport I am sure it will be fun to try and sneak everything through the weight limits. Will see how it goes (no, nutella and parmesan are not in yet).
Everest here we come!
