Yeah, good point. Forget Everest. Just go for K2. Acclimatization isn't important and you can ride a helicopter way up there. They have some happening parties with bon fires at base camp and if you fall into a crevasse, you can just blow your way out with explosives.


lmao, priceless :D :D

Move and bump for an all-time classic.

I hear you man, isn't it strange how the axe only bites into the snow and stops you right next to or while your hanging off a cliff?

This OP was perhaps the greatest post ever! I love how Scott took the hook so cautiously. :lol:

This line was the best:

In business one has to hit the ground running, and this is what I intend to do when we arrive.

You don't suppose Mel was reincarnated as Steve 1215 do ya?

I dunno, the slacks seem to be a match.

He does mention how much money he has quite a bit too. Steve, you need to post a picture of yourself in a pink polo and white linen slacks. Inquiring minds want to know...
