I appreciate your input with the political/safety updates, and I am sure other do as well.

I the spirit of these pages, I have removed your company affiliations. You adding them there after each post, smacks of advertising by stealth. There are appropriate places to advertise, if you look down the main menu.

Please keep sending updates, but as an individual, not as a representative of some trekking company.
