Alan Arnette on Everest

Postby Alan Arnette » Sun Mar 27, 2011 2:34 am

Sorry for the self serving title but I am off to climb Everest as part of my 7 Summits for Alzheimer's: Memories are everything project. I have already summited Vinson in December and Aconcagua in January. I am climbing using the logistics of International Mountain Guides (IMG) with a Sherpa guide. I am posting frequent updates on my blog at http://www.alanarnette.com/blog. Denali is next in July.

Um, just wondering what the speed record is for the seven summits tour?? You're setting a cracking pace so far, for sure.

Best of luck.
What is this "scientific method" you speak of?
