11th June 2012

All's going well for the Mazeno Ridge Team and Sandy is in communication mood - two texts in two days!!!  He and his team mates, Rick Allen and Cathy O'Dowd are all doing well with all the initial logistics going to plan. They spent yesterday driving along the Karakorum Highway, 16 hours of bumps all the way to Chilas. They have now reached the end of the good quality road and are at the village of Astore, 2300m. They then tranfer their agile bodies and gear from a bus to jeeps (I use the plural but have no idea, perhaps they all have to squeeze into one!) where they will have another 3 hours of bumps and hair pin bends to contend with.  Mmmmm, saves walking eh!  Lucky them!

Satellite commuication proving awkward so no blogs as yet.
