Tomorrow we should start to Askole and than for the 6 days trekking to K2 and Boad Peak Basecamp. A new member from Italy (Alberto Magliano) will be with us and he will arrive from Italy just tomorrow.

In the next days will be difficult to send daily reports because we will be trekking all the day and it'll be difficult to work with Computer in the evening time.

So be patient and wait for our arrival in Base Camp.
