Everest Expedition Update May 16, 2008, Part 1
› Listen Now

This is Scott calling in from [garbled].

It’s May 16th and I head out towards the summit.

We’ll be getting our gear on around 3:30 a.m. tomorrow morning and over the next several days working our way up successively … to hopefully Camp 4 on …

If all goes well around 6 or 7 in the morning on the 22nd we’ll be standing on top.

The fourth day of the expedition right now. It’s been the most physically difficult thing I’ve ever done, to climb up to 24,000 feet so far.

On a shuttle trip it’s an 8½ minute ride to get to the perspective that I hope to experience on the summit.

So, definitely a very difficult, but very rewarding experience to be here on the mountain.

And I look forward to sharing more of it with you when we get back to Houston. Talk to you later.
