Equipment, To-do Lists, and More Lists

Climbing Gear and Equipment

An expedition to the summit of Mt. Everest requires a lot of equipment and personal gear and all kinds of other stuff.  It also requires a lot of preparation just to be away and disconnected for 8 weeks.  There are lists of lists to be completed and with just two weeks before departure I am in a good position, but still feeling the urgency of getting everything completed.  Traci is an important contributor to my preparations — ordering and shipping supplies and medicines in advance of my arrival to Nepal, helping to pull together all of the loose ends from my equipment list, and being a big supporter so that I can focus on preparations.  No one climbs Mt. Everest alone — it requires teamwork and support (except of course for Reinhold Messner).

    Did you pack anything sentimental or special for the top?

      Yes! There is a purple North Shore Country Day School flag in the picture below the water bottles. I’ve had the same flag on several mountains. Fingers crossed!
