The episode opens with the guys happy to see that their luggage has finally arrived and they’ve fallen into a windfall (relatively speaking) of money. However, they were unable to get on the plane to go to Tibet, so they decide to spend the extra day touring Pokara, a nearby city that is the gateway to Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and other mountains in Western Nepal.
Some of the most amazing footage this time out is showing one of the craftsman creating the embroidery on Jon’s “Rest of Everest” T-Shirts that he had made while there. These guys are famous for making the patches that go on jackets and down suits for Everest climbing teams. It’s fascinating to watch the process from putting the pattern down and stitching in the variety of colors. It’s very cool to watch, and I can happily say that I’m one of the proud owners of one of these t-shirts. I wear it all the time, and love it. Thanks again for sending one my way Jon!
At the end of the episode, we’re treated with some great shots of Kathmandu from the roof of the hotel, near sunset. I love seeing these foreign places with their unique architecture, landscapes, and settings. It’s one of my favorite parts of travel.
Jon closes things by letting the viewers know how they can get one of those great t-shirts for themselves. You can order one from the Rest of Everest website now for $30 by clicking the link here. The page has some great photos of the shirts, which I can tell you are very high quality, and the stitching is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It’s great stuff and well worth the money.
You can also win one of the shirts by going to iTunes and writing a review of The Rest of Everest. Jon wants to get to 125 reviews in iTunes (as of the video’s creation there were 87 reviews). He’s already picked a random number and the person who posts the review that corresponds with that number, falling between 87 and 125, will win the t-shirt. So login to iTunes and get writing those reviews!
