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).

Successful first leg on my way to Aconcagua
Kathy dropped me off at Dulles airport early this morning. We had a nice time chatting en route to the airport. I then had a very nice, relaxing, and uneventful flight to Miami. Now, I get to sit for 10 hours waiting for my next leg to Santiago, Chile.
