Mt. Everest 2013 Will Not Happen For Me

I made the decision today that I will not go to Mt. Everest in the spring (April and May) of 2013. The reasons:

  1. I can't afford it. It is so expensive. While I have improved my saving skills (just ask about the Dawn soap) I don't have the money to "retire" for seven weeks and travel abroad to the resort known as Everest Basecamp and South Col. If I had the money, I would probably go.
  2. There are a couple interesting opportunities, mostly engineering career related, that will happen in the spring and summer of 2013 that I would like to attend. The kind of opportunities that I will be able to talk about being a contributing member for the next couple decades. 
That's it. The hidden message, which I will explicitly write because people don't always understand reading between the lines, I am going in April and May 2014.
