Matt arrives at Everest Base Camp
April 10, 2019
“Greetings from Everest base camp. We arrived on April 8 and have moved into our tents- our homes for the next 7 weeks. We have our Puja ceremony tomorrow asking the mountain for permission to climb and it looks like we will tentatively head up the mountain for our first rotation on April 19. All good.” – Matt Brennan #unfinishedbusiness.
Matt arrives in Lobuche
April 7, 2019
“Hello from Lobuche. Our last stop until base camp. We hiked 5 hours in a small snow storm and arrived in good shape. Trying to stay healthy is everything on the trek in. Your body cannot recover from illness at 17,500’ so I am being super careful on the trek. We arrive in base camp tomorrow and I’m looking forward to moving into my tent-my home for the next 7 weeks. All good here in the Khumbu valley and the majestic peaks of the Himalaya.” – Matt Brennan #unfinishedbusiness.

Matt arrives in Tengebouche
April 3, 2019

Matt arrives in Khumjung
April 2, 2019
“Arrived in Khumjung this afternoon after a 5 hour trek. Bittersweet to be back as this was the place I got hurt last year. Needless to say it will be good to get out of here tomorrow morning with this place behind me- despite its incredible beauty. #unfinishedbusiness.” – Matt Brennan
