    I will breathe some of an Xe / O2 mixture before the trip to avoid altitude sickness.

    March 26, 2014

    • Cathy

      So you have enough time to summit. We are slow turtles.

      March 26, 2014

    Can't we also do K2 while we're at it? Maybe as a cool-down?

  • Diana

    I don't plan to bring a map, but I figure the route is pretty obvious. That should be okay, right?

    1 · April 24, 2012

    I can't believe there's still space for this!

    April 24, 2012

    Yes on the gear check, I will need 299 Turtles to carry me up there, and yes, we may have to eat our dogs, like Amundson on the South Pole

    2 · April 24, 2012
