“He is lucky who, in the full tide of life, has experienced a measure of the active environment he most desires. In these days of upheaval and violent change, when the basic values of today are the vain and shattered dreams of tomorrow, there is much to be said for a philosophy which aims at living a full life while the opportunity offers.” -Eric Shipton, 1943

Two months. One historic route on the world’s highest mountain. No supplemental oxygen.

My journey to Chomolungma…Goddess Mother of the Earth…Everest…begins in earnest March 27!
