Alan Arnette on Everest

Postby Alan Arnette » Sat Mar 26, 2011 6:34 pm

Sorry for the self serving title but I am off to climb Everest as part of my 7 Summits for Alzheimer's: Memories are everything project. I have already summited Vinson in December and Aconcagua in January. I am climbing using the logistics of International Mountain Guides (IMG) with a Sherpa guide. I am posting frequent updates on my blog at http://www.alanarnette.com/blog. Denali is next in July.

Wow! Good luck, man. Safe returns!
Save a place for me up in the high country.
There's still space to breathe.

Don't ever give up, don't ever quit. Thanks for the heads up. I will be following closely now. Be safe and come back with all your stuff.

Best of luck... you're about the begin the adventure that nearly every climber I know has dreamed of at one point or another. Stay safe up there, and snap a few pictures for those of us who are still hanging out at half of your elevation :)

Sounds like a great cause! Good luck out there and be safe...
