Thanks Paul.
This sort of endeavor says a lot to your will and testament, and to try it multiple times, says even more so. I will never receive a sponsored trip to the Himalayas- my goals include being knowledgable and lucky enough to make some b.c. trips out west, maybe some day AK (I'm a Vermonta, what can I say), but I love it- for the reason that you mention: "the mountain is as big as you make it." I ride with a couple friends and my partner and needless to say, I wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun. I get what folks are saying about risks/work versus the payoff. The fact you got to attempt this with Everest in the background is something that I'm sure you'll never forget. One of my friends' greatest accomplishments was making a summer trek in the region and he's very proud of it, as he should be. I couldn't imagine the stoke level of seeing the scenery and the lines that you saw in your trip even if it damn near exhausted you to death- Isn't that part of the allure anyway- survival in our most primal settings? Thanks again.
