A GROUP of explorers have started revealing everything about their preparations for an expedition up to the world-renowned Mount Everest base camp.

Calling themselves the Base Campers, the team from Great Dunmow, Essex, have taken up the challenge to raise cash for drinking water charity WaterAid.

The group are heading out to the mountains of Nepal on October 2. Readers can follow their progress on this website by clicking on the Base Campers special blog page.

Located in the centre of the Dunmow Broadcast homepage, the green 'Base Campers' link will take you through to the regular blog, provided by members of the group.

Come back every week to find out more and see the pictures as they negotiate the tricky hike through the mountains before reaching their destination.
