Everest Fan Base 2 - Rosanna's Friends

By Rosanna Terberg in Guest Bloggers - 14th April 2009

I've had some really great support from some of my close friends, and actually some of my lecturers as well - who sometimes seem quite concerned for my sanity!

One friend in particular who didn't know much about trekking and thought it was essentially quite "lame", until she went to walk up Snowdon with her Grandfather.

She phoned me as soon as she'd finished saying that she could only make it half way and that she had to come down early as she felt sick and shivery after about the first 30 minutes.

She now tells me quite often "Rosie, this is the HARDEST thing you will EVER do!!!!" She phones me regularly to tell me that she's a) really impressed that I'm doing this and b) really worried about me. She repeatedly checks up on me to make sure I'm training and not assuming that I can just climb to base camp with no training at all!
