While I was away, with my head firmly buried in the world of adventure racing, Jon Miller and Chris Marquardt announced their Everest Trek 2010, which is being billed as “A once-in-a-lifetime experience…again!” The expedition will once again be a mix of adventure travel and photography/videography workshop for the lucky few who get to go along on the trip.
For those that don’t know, Chris Marquardt produces the Tips From the Top Floor podcast, which is one of the best photography podcasts around. Chris is a professional photographer who conducts workshops all over Europe and the United States. Regular readers of this blog, will probably recognize Jon Miller, who is the producer of The Rest of Everest video podcast, which is the most comprehensive look at climbing Mt. Everest and other big Himalayan peaks that I’m aware of.
Last year, the trekking group made the standard hike up the Khumbu Valley to Everest Base Camp. This year, the trek will be a bit different, and longer, venturing into Tibet and along Everest’s lesser known East Side, where fewer climbers and trekkers ever go. The area is described as more of a wilderness trek, and much different than the usual trekking circuits in the region. And of course, you’ll also get lots of great instruction on how to use those fancy digital still and video cameras that you’ve purchased, but still haven’t completely figured out.

As a participant of the first trek, I highly recommend that everyone get on the list as soon as possible. I just wish I could join the group for this one – it's going to be spectacular.
Go! You won't regret it! You'll love it! Jon, Chris, and Monika put together great adventures. I wish I could go too, but previous participants are excluded (waaa!).
I want to go very badly! Need to sign up for the info, although Jon does a good job of keeping me informed. Not sure I can swing the month off, but we'll see. So jealous I wasn't with you two earlier this year, but had to settle for the Amazon instead. 🙂
Yeah, Kraig–you really should get out more. I feel terrible for you since you were only able to visit the Amazon and that little continent called (I think) Australia.
Seriously, though, thanks as always for writing about the podcast and the upcoming 2010 Workshop Trek. I'm really looking forward to the new adventure, especially because we'll get to meet an entire group of new participants. Andi & Steve Wolfe were a blast to have along with me in 2009 and after 3 weeks together I can proudly consider them friends for life!
That's just one of the reasons to participate in our treks…
As always, my pleasure Jon. I'm sure that next year's trek will be just as amazing for everyone involved.
