Some of the funniest statements of the trail–keeping in mind that both over-exertion and altitude lead to some pretty strange interpretations of “funny.”

“As long as there’s poo, we can stay awake.” Ashraf
“The Pringles are staring at me…I can’t look…it’s like the CARE BEAR STARE!” Mads
“That fried rice made me fart. I keep outside and *loud fart noise* Just scared a yak right now. To be fair, it scared me too. *yak roar sound*” Ash
