Tempered Excitement

People ask if I am excited to go climb Mt. Everest and yes I am, but my enthusiasm is tempered and reserved. The last two years have been the two most deadly in the mountain's history. What are the chances of that happening a third year in a row? Honestly, no one knows. 

That's part of the reason I am going back this year, it appears to be a quiet year on Everest because a lot of perspective mountaineers are waiting to see if there can be such a thing as a year without tragedy on Everest. It's like buying stock in a company, the best time to buy is when prices are low and everyone else is selling.

Additionally, I've spent so much time thinking about the process, buying batteries, a new camera, electric foot warmers, etc. that my excitement for the climbing itself hasn't really developed yet.  As I ride toward the airport today I wondered out loud, "what if I actually make it to the summit?" I don't know how that might change me. Frankly I don't think it will change me much if at all, but I don't know.
