  • My Trips are toooo popular, so I will auction off my body and see how much I can get, as there is such high demand for it!

    Advanced Trip for most turtles. Must be in good shape, or be carried up by Sherpa.

    Trip will last over 32 hours, unless you go with Uli Steck http://www.uelisteck.ch/en.html

    RSVP Early, I am sure this one will go like hotcakes!

    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.

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

    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
