My fundraising plans consist mainly of asking all the wonderful and kind people i know to sponsor me on my trek through the Himalayas.
I will be trekking through The Himalayas (Sikkim) at the end of October.Sikkim is between Nepal and Bhutan in India. There are approx 22 people going. The Trek takes us to an altitude of about 3500 metres, and we will be walking for about 5/6 hours a day and camping at night. Oh what fun :)
A stroll through The Himalayas
Good evening all. Well my boots are getting well worn in, and I am thoroughly enjoying my regular 1-2 hr brisk jaunts through the beautiful English countryside... however, i can't help but feel that i'm in for some sort of shock.I'm hoping it will be a good one! I have to admit, that my vanity, and my purse are getting the better of me, and i'm wondering... do i really need to buy special trekking clothes, surely they wear can-can skirts in india....Am i really going to be up there in khaki and purple wick-away clothing, with a little water tube connecting my rucksack to my mouth...?
Methinks I am!

Once in your life you should better stop and breathe in life, going high as a kite and have your bones walking after midnight, rising above the world that you are to us. And I'd think you'd know by now that we all walk with you...
Good luck Sam - a great adventure, and a very worthwhile cause
The best of luck: Time after time you've tried to trek away but it's not that easy when your [shoe] sole is torn in two...
