Everest is climbed step by step and each person must take those steps on their own. Nobody can do this for you. However, it is the team that gives the individual the power to perform.
This team of climbers will trek to Everest base camp and then embark on a summit attempt on Island Peak. Amputations, burns, gunshot wounds and post traumatic stress disorder that they have endured in combat will add to the grueling challenges that they will face on the mountain.
….it is rare on these trips that everything goes as planned and you must learn to roll with it.
Since I am madly packing today I thought I would share with you what one takes on an Antarctic expedition. Obviously it will be cold and remote so I need warm clothing that will keep me safe.
Climbing Mt. Vinson, providing that I make it to the top, will be my final summit of the “7 Summits.”
