Presentation at Calgary Public Library

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

I wanted to let those people know that have been wanting to see my presentation that the details are now out for my May 14 presentation. It will be part of the Calgary Public Library’s Summer Program. I think they have just released this program, and if you can’t get your hands on a hard copy, you can find it online here: Link to CPL Programs.

To see info on my presentation specifically, just type ‘Everest’ into the ‘Keywords’ field, and click ‘Search’. Looking at the online link, it mentions registration will start April 18. Not sure what that’s all about, but if you’re interested in coming make sure you stay on top of that. Otherwise, see you there!

Everest, day by day

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I have started a little project to try and share all those Everest experiences and emotions that I went through while on the mountain last year. I have been posting Twitter updates on a daily basis, kind of pretending that I am on the mountain now, every day posting (with a one year delay) what happened or what I was going through that day. April and May are the months that I was there, so doing it exactly one year later seemed fitting! Anyways, if you want to follow along you can follow me on Twitter, or if you’re like most normal people and not on Twitter, just check out this link once in a while and my updates should be there. I will also be posting photos that go along with the day’s events, many of them previously un-published. Any comments feel free to post here. All the best to everyone in the Spring to come!

Man, how did I miss this? Aparently there’s a Canadian company that is about to make summiting Everest a whole lot easier, and safer too! Looks like they’ll be doing a pilot project this year, seems like I just missed it! Here’s the scoop:
