Good luck charms and angels

Back in March, we lost a very important member of our family - my Gran. She was a loving, warm, caring, funny person and she is sorely missed by us all.

Deryl and I decided we wanted to mark my Gran's passing when we're at base camp - it's the closest we can possibly get to her and we wanted to leave a memento in her memory and honour. My gran was a determined woman, and I'm hoping to draw from some of that fighting spirit when the times get tough out there - which they will.

It's tough to decide what to bring up there and how to honour such a wonderful person. After a bit of discussion, we settled on bringing up an angel pin. I intend to pin it to my day pack in the hopes that it will give me all the strength I need and it will be a good luck charm - lord knows some good luck would be most welcome after a recent spate of bad luck! Once we reach base camp, I'm going to leave that angel up there and hopefully it can bring luck to others.

The pin I've chose is specific to my granny and I think she'd be pleased that we've decided to do this.

So - who else brings a good luck charm with them when they need a little extra encouragement?

Is anyone doing the same trek as us and intends to leave a memento on Everest?
