You are a sad, lonely, middle-aged horny titty-baby that is under the misconception that anyone here really cares about your monetary worth and possesssions.
Go climb a freaking mountain dammit! Even if it IS only Mammoth. :P


But Deb, he has an M5! :lol:


As an aside, I wish I had an M6.


Is that a smaller caliber pistol than the M9? :?

Who got your rag wet Dave? :lol:

:lol: Good one!

That's the BMW M5........who doesn't need a 500hp V10? Perhaps he can drive up Everest. I hear that traction control has come a long way. :lol:

The M5 is entry level for a man of The Mel's class. I would bet he drives a Bugatti Veyron.

Ah, an SP classic. I think one of my favorite parts is where "Mel" says he's ready for Everest because he's climbed over 12,000 feet. :shock:

Anyone who knows even a shred of anything about Mount Everest knows that this is the worst time of year to climb there.


:shock: I never knew that summer was a bad time to go to Everest.... even after watching the shows and stuff.... Thanks Scott for letting me and a few of the non-experienced know that one.... my old opinion would be that if theres a Season to go, summers the one..... so then it got me thinking.... when exactly is the best season?


Generally there are two times folks try to climb in Nepal: pre-monsoon (around May) and post-monsoon (October or so).
