In the sixth episode of the Mountain Malarkey Podcast, Andy and Dave and also our first ever guest, Doug discuss the reasons why some people don't make it to Everest Base Camp.

Doug talks about his 2 experiences trekking to Everest Base Camp with EverTrek and the lessons he learned from those 2 trips. The first time in September 2017 was unsuccessful and the second time in October 2019 was successful.

Head Yeti Andy and Painted Yeti Dave talk about success and failure and the line in between. Is it really getting to base camp or not?

Things the guys discuss:

  • Doug talks about the 3 big learns from his 2 treks.
  • How you don't have to be Kenton Cool to get to base camp.
  • Success and failure. Just getting out there is a success!

“If you don't train and you don't prepare you do have a greater chance of getting ill”

“How little things became mountains”

“It's not 17 turns”
