“It was really nice to be greeted in the airport by friends and family,” said Rob. “Coming out of the baggage claim area, seeing my parents and seeing Clinton with some of the other IBD Adventures trekkers was great, but the best for me was seeing the smiling face of my daughter. I’d been looking forward to that moment the whole trip home.”
The No Guts Know Glory team separated in Kathmandu for the flights home, though Darrell, Rob and John O were on the same itinerary through Hong Kong back to Vancouver. Travel back took the better part of three days. We’re all home safe, catching up with friends and family and sharing stories from the mountain while we recover from the jet lag. Rob will be busy over the next week appearing on the news and meeting with reporters to share his experiences with intestinal disease, life with an ostomy and climbing the highest mountain on earth. In the next few days, we’ll have links to many great stories written about the IBD Adventures trek and No Guts Know Glory Everest expedition.
