There are two key phases in the lead up to Bobby’s Mera Peak expedition.

Pre-departure. The expedition leaders will provide him with periodic guidance relating to his preparation and advice on equipment. During the same period, it is expected that Bobby undertakes suitable training and otherwise prepares himself mentally, physically and medically for the challenge.

On-mountain. The expedition will organise and manage all logistics for Bobby in Nepal, including in Kathmandu and on the trail. The leader will accompany him throughout the expedition. The leaders will also help Bobby organise his medical treatment in the event that he needs it and will make the arrangements for evacuation in the event this becomes necessary. The leader will also deploy GPS and satellite Internet technology to allow people to follow Bobby’s progress.
