  1. This is just heartbreaking, the loss of life staggering.
    Life is so unfair sometimes but I know everyone will soldier on.

  2. I am so happy to hear you are safe but my heart breaks as I read about the devastation in Nepal. I hope for safe returns for all.

  3. I am thinking of the tragedy last year. I remember not many Sherpas had personal emergency devices to help to locate them in the snow. A grievous shortcoming. Did more guides equip staff with these devices this year? Anyone know?

  4. My first thoughts upon hearing of the earthquake and avalanches was of my Nepali guide from my Everest Base Camp Trek in 2012,
    And you Allen. I have been following your blog on Everest since 2011 and your pictures and information helped in my decision to make the Trek to EBC. Prayers have been answered that you and my guide Bam are safe.

  5. We are so relieved that you and the others with you at Camp I & Camp II are safely descended back to EBC. Stay safe and our very best wishes for your return home. We would also love your perspective on how best to help the people of Nepal when you are able. The entire situation is heartbreaking.

    P.S. I thought you also might want to know that I joined the Registry this morning. Memories are everything.

  6. Alan, so very glad you are safe, we are following as much news as we can and appreciate your updates. Thoughts and prayers to all who have been affected, safe travels to you.

  7. Alan, So Glad To Hear You Are Back Down. I Have Been Glued To The News Following Everything. I Hope Jim Was rescued And Back With You As Well. Be Safe And I Keep Everyone Affected By This In My Prayers.

  8. Has anyone heard if Miss Elizabeth Hawley is safe? Per an article, in the Kathmandu Post, she’d just held a promotion event 4/24/15, at the Dwarika Hotel, to launch her latest book, The Nepal Scene: Chronicles of Elizabeth Hawley.

  9. Alan, thinking of you as we see the terrible devastation in Nepal. Glad you’re safe; wishing you the best.

  10. FYI: On TV this AM, Michio Kaku said the initial quake was so powerful it shifted entire city of Kathmandu 10 feet. He also said expect widespread of disease, like that of Dominican Republic.
    Heart is heavy for all of the region, and will continue prayers for them, you, and all climbers and trekkers for safe travels to your respective homes.

  11. good to hear from you Alan; thoughts and prayers to everyone during these very sad circumstances.

    be well buddy


  12. Thank God you are safe Alan. I was sick with worry for you and your team. I will send prayers your way for a safe journey back home….

  13. news and footage from Nepal makes me feel ill. i pray that they will be strong. my heart is heavy, mother nature can be cruel.the Nepalese have many friends, i hope that they know we are thinking about them. niko.

  14. Alan, I am so relieved that you are safe. I am also terribly sorry for the loss of Eve and all the other people at base camp. Nepal is undergoing some terrible body blows; I feel so helpless and sad.
