    Everest is on my daughter’s “bucket list” of before 30 must do’s.
    One of her former instructor’s/mentor’s is a summit guide, has made quite a difference in her life.

    Planning on the walk-up on Adams, in July, and if she, (and I), feel spry enough, hopefully Mt. Stuart. (In my opinion, the most pictoeasque peak in Washington State).

    Looking forward to your pics, and such; bring back a pint fo yak butter!


  4. Karen, my prayers go with you on this amazing adventure, while my feet shall be planted firmly on the ground.


      • 😦 that means i won’t see you for a very long time. i pray for you though. i know this makes you happy and for that I am happy as well. since i cnoant be there to hug you and see you off, goodbye my friend. goodbye and blessings be with you. God is faithful – you know that well. Just remember that and know you are in my prayers. goodbye.


  5. Hi Karen,
    I just read your blog. It is so cool, and I’m super excited to follow your progress.
    My first inclination upon arrival to said blog was to wish you good Luck. However, knowing how hard you trained, and after reading about all of your preparations, I feel what I want to say is just go have the best time ever! You are ready! And we all know that you have super human strength, so try not to lap your climing mates(a
    & the yaks, ok?


  6. And GOOD LUCK! Because we’re Irish.
    Xo, Mo


  7. looking back at all you done in your life did not surprise me at all when i first heard that you were going to do this. As a long time friend i know there will be nothing that will stop you from your feat of this mountain. just another walk in the park for you all that training. good luck and god bless can not wait to see pictures from the top.


  8. Karen though I knew you as Kathys sister at Glacier, I just want to say I admire you sooo much. I enjoy your blog immensely, something I will never see as walking is difficult for me with a life long friend of arthritis. Enjoy and keep us informed. God bless
