Everest In My Sites

As I sit at Starbucks in the warm Vegas heat wearing flip flops and Wayfarers, it occurs to me that only 9 months from now, I will be departing for Everest. Mount Everest. I will be undergoing an adventure like no other I have undergone. I have done a bit of traveling. I spent three months in the Philippines with Alliance Youth Corp in 1983. That was a great trip and a cultural explosion for my pretty narrow view of life to that point. I have traveled in South America and Europe as well. Those trips were tourist trips with fine hotels and great transportation. But the Everest Trek? That will be EPIC.

I came across a blog about the trek and am reading it like it is GOLD! This is like previewing the day for day I am going to see and feel and hear and ouch and it is exciting! Hiking in Red Rock, below, will be the bizarro world opposite of what I can expect in Nepal.
