I'm going for Everest in April. You may follow all news and dispatches at the link  featured below. We will fly from Knoxville to Kathmandu around April 5 and from Kathmandu to Lukla on April 10. From there we begin our 9 day hike in to basecamp at 17,500 feet at the foot of the Khumbu glacier. I will be accompanied by Laurel on the trek to base camp. After her departure, I will remain for 40 days of movement up and down Chomolungma, or Sagarmatha as the locals like to refer to the peak.

“Here is your country—do not let anyone take it or its glory away from you.  Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skim your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.  The world and the future and your very children shall judge you accordingly as you deal with this sacred trust.”
Theodore Roosevelt.
