You're going to invite Jessica Biel on your HONEYMOON? :shock: That'll go over well....

Well, you know what they say. A man's reach should exceed his grasp. :lol:

The Honeymoon is not until September. You underestimate me M. With me as her personal porter attending to her every need, Ms Biel's head would be spinning. Though I'm sure she would blame it on the altitude. :lol:

The expedition has started. They are filming the trip and it is scheduled to be aired March 14th on MTV.

Interesting footnote from the first daily dispatch.

"I come from a family of mountaineers."

Rounded to the nearest multiple of either 215 or 335, Whitney's summit elevation in feet is 14405.

The SOTS team reached the summit yesterday. Good for them! Even though it is not a technical climb, that's not bad a for a group of non-climbers who are probably accustomed to living in style and comfort.
