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.
