In April 2014, I attempted to climb Mt. Everest before an avalanche in the icefall claimed the lives of 18 Sherpa. A year later (May 2015), I returned to Mt. Everest only to witness a 7.8 earthquake while at camp 1. I am preparing to climb again in April 2018 but this blog is dedicated to my purposeful pursuits. Please be sure to check out the charities that I support and follow me on twitter (@pem725) or instagram (pem725).

What does a typical Everest expedition look like? Post 1: Overview and Preamble
The more I researched the typical expedition, the more details I added to this post and ended up breaking the long post into many smaller posts. I figured if you miss one, you can always go back and read up to the latest. So relax, grab one of your favorite beverages, and prepare to read a novella. I will post about a chapter a day to keep you riveted (HA!). I apologize for the length but I wanted to give everyone adequate detail. You've been forewarned but I encourage you to read on. Remember, the goal is to give you an overview of a typical Everest expedition. Since some expeditions may last up to 60 days (including travel) there are many days to account for throughout the trip.
