I'm working on a new site that you may be interested in:

ClimbingMensaStud.com

Kind of a cross between all the sites we know and love, and Match.com.

* Do i need yeti spray for the hike starting from Lukla, or just for the part above Namche Bazar?
* Is my 9mm big enough to stop a yeti?
* Musk Deer punting!
* Will my car be safe if I park it in down-town Kathmando for 3 weeks while I trek the Everest circuit?
* What month do all the glaciers melt so that the climbing season can start?
* I lost my dog on Cho-La Pass! Can anyone help me find him this weekend?
* The Great Camillo has been sighted in Colorado recently!
* A bunch of people from India (Nepal's Texas???) have mining rights around K2 and blocking access! Outrage!
* To the girl riding the green yak headed to Laboche! I love you!
* All these prayer flags are trashing our 8000ers and making them look like used car lots! Leave no trace, people!
* I'm planning on building a sauna room on Kala Patthar! Who's up for helping me carry the lumber up there?
* Anyone planked all the 8000ers?
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

* How far can my Subaru make it up Kangchenjunga? Is like the road up to the radio towers on Princeton?
* What's the Gasherbrum traverse like vs. the Bells?
* Lhotse shouldn't count! It doesn't have enough prominence!
* I'm doing K2 flying in from sea level the night before. Will I have any acclimation issues?
* Will I be OK at Camp 4 with my REI three-season tent or should I bring longjohns?
* The Hillary Step -- let's have a really long debate over what class it is. I say Class 3. If you've done Wetterhorn you should have no problem.
* I want to do a stealth ascent of Everest from the Tibet side, will the Chinese government be ok with this?
* What are people's favorite post-hike meals? I usually just nosh on whatever body parts I find on the way down.


Absolutely hilarious post. Thanks for making me LOL for real.

*What kind of crazy stuff do you do to celebrate an 8000er? Can I do handstands?
*Will I get cold with just cut-offs?
*I've never done an 8000er before. Do I really need bottled oxygen?
*Sherpas. Are those like, park rangers or something?
*Speaking of which, where can I get my yearly pass for the park. What are they, like, $40?
*Anyone have any beta on a ski descent of the Kangshung Face on Everest? Was thinking about doing that.
*Finally, who's this Messner guy people keep talking about?

Another sausagefest will not do.

You'll have to do something different with the guest list or I'm not coming.
