I am Returning to Mt. Everest in 2016!

Yes, in four and a half weeks I will be flying to Nepal to attempt Mt. Everest again! Pretty much the same situation as last time from my side, I'm trying without bottled oxygen, from the standard south side route, and going with Asian Trekking again. Of course this has been in the works for months, but it's not real until Asian Trekking confirms they have my money, which they did Monday.

Once again you are welcome to join me for the trek to basecamp. It would be roughly April 10th to April 23rd and cost around $4000 round trip from the USA. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you my flight details, once I book a flight.

Yes I will be blogging again as I am able, and using my Delorme InReach to send tweets and GPS coordinates. Again I am doing this without sponsors, on purpose, so that there is less pressure on me to get the summit.
Everest from Everest Basecamp
To answer the question, 'why this year?' Well, two reasons, one, I saved up enough money to go again, and two, I see myself becoming less risk adverse as I grow older, so while yes I would like to try K2 and Trango Tower, and go to Patagonia, I felt that if I delayed going back to Everest for another year, I would be less likely to go on any adventure like this in the future. If not now, then when? I'm not getting younger, and you never know what sort of position I will be in in the future.

Well, there is certainly more to come, stay tuned.

  5. HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} or Text +1(307) 241-3712

    Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} or Text +1(307) 241-3712

  8. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MR CLIFFORD. He is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, i inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. praying and hoping it was not a scam i used the blank CARD and it was successful i withdraw nor less than $20,000 every day the blank CARD worked like a magic and now i have become rich and famous in my society, if you want to order for the blank ATM CARD here is there email address : cliffordhackerspays@gmail.com....
