There was never any doubt that I was going to make this trip. I have always felt that any serious hiker just had to make this prigrimage. To the mythical land on the other side of the Earth. To the rooftop of the world. To the hiking kingdom of Nepal.
It's been a long time coming, but the time has arrived. As my thru-life begins to come to a close, it seems appropriate that I visit the Himalayas this year. The year I spent gasping for air on a daily basis in the Andes and Rockies. It's only right that I end it breathless beneath the almighty - Everest.
