|Our trekking group- 20 of us plus three guides|
In late March, a colleague forwarded me the invitation to particpate in the Himanchal Pradesh trek as part of a fundraiser for the Manovikas Charity in Delhi that provides mentally challenged folks with options and training for employment. I had to think about it for 2 seconds, promptly signing myself. I downloaded the pdf detailing the trek and I can't remember much of what it said other than "toilet tents." My other fear was that I have not been keeping up with exercise, letting client visits, long hours and kingfisher beer get in the way. Now I had a goal!
