Sorry for the delay since I last wrote.
As you may know, I have taken some time off work, and I am travelling around South America. The last 2 months especially have been great preperation, for most of that time I have been above 3,000 meters (10,000 feet). Most of my way through Bolivia, then living in Cusco for one month. To make sure I am in good form I did the Inca Trail, and then the hardest hike in Peru in the Cordillera Huaysh huaysh. Some of the hike included several passes over 5,000 meters (above the height of Mount Hood) and one night sleeping about 4,700 meters.
So, I am confident to say, that the altitude should not be a problem, and that I have done all I can fitness wise. Really, the rest is not up to me, the things we cannot control include ilness and weather.
I am looking forward to the challenge of helping the Regulars to another summit, and I hope you are all able to support our causes.
Speak to you after the climb!
