It's good to see the highest point of Antarctica here. Excellent work on the history of climbing Vinson. BTW, I found one of your books at the USGS library about mountain climbing in Antarctica. Since they were giving away duplicate copies of some of their books, I added it to my collection.
Thanks CSF, I've spent a bit of time at the USGS over the years. They were a great help to me and we shared all of our GPS data with them too. They also have a good collection of Antarctic aerial images if you ever have lots of spare time!
Damien - I'd love to get my hands on a copy of your book, but is it really $70? I think Amazon may be holding them hostage... Is it a coffee table book? Just wondering if there was a cheaper option... hope all is well and thanks for putting this page up. Best, James
Proof of Life is at: http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Mountaineering-Antarctica-Damien-Gildea/9782875230065
$45 with free shipping? Prices seem to vary but bookdepository is usually cheapest.
Done and done. Thanks Damien. After I read it, I'll buy you a beer if you're ever in town and we'll chat about it. Looks very cool. Be well man...
Thanks James. Just be warned that although the book is about $40 all the good stuff to climb in it is about $40,000! :-) I may well take you up on the beer though...
Got the book last night. NICELY DONE. Pretty cool! Yes, next time you're in Denver, beers on me. Be well man.
Thanks James, glad you like it. Careful though, I get thirsty...
I enjoyed your books at the Union Glacier library while waiting for the IL76!
Thanks Scotty and congratulations on your summit!
Glad to finally see this peak represented. Thanks
We finally have a page for Mount Vinson! It's been sorely missing! Thanks for adding it and great job!
.. for sharing all the information of Mount Vinson with us. Great job and good pictures!
Take care -
