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).

My preparation for climbing Mt. Everest in 2014
The following blog is a full account of my preparation for climbing Mt. Everest with Dan Mazur's group. Many of my friends ask me about what I am doing to prepare; well, here it is in full graphical detail. There are scores of accounts of the climbs but few people document their preparation. The climb is more than just the summit; a successful climb consists of months or years of preparation, a ton of cash, and good luck. Here is to hoping that I have all three and more. Stay tuned for my weekly updates.
