Paul Campion To celebrate my 50th this year my son James & I decided to trek to Everest Base Camp and try to raise some money for a really great charity and for a very special young man, Felix!

We head out to the Himalaya's on 2nd February which is in the middle of the Nepalese Winter with temperatures at night as low as minus 20 degrees.

The trek is a 130 km round trip starting with a pretty hair raising flight from Kathmandu to the worlds most dangerous airport in Lukla.

This will be followed by a couple of weeks of hard trekking that will take us up to Everest Base Camp at 17,600ft.

Obviously the hardest thing of all will be coping with each other's snoring !
